Yamaha reanalyzed and reevaluated literally every single design specification. The bell and the barrel offer a tone of breathtaking richness and depth. The sound is warm yet has a clear focused center surrounded by a wealth of overtones, resulting in extraordinary beauty and expression.
Grenadilla Bell and Barrel
Slightly plump barrel and thick-walled bell produce a deep tone with rich resonance.
Improved key shape with proprietary Yamaha silver-plating
Ergonomically-designed new key shape offers comfortable and natural key touch. Proprietary Yamaha silver-plating is applied on the keys, allowing a focused and centered sound.
New Eb lever
A newly shaped Eb lever is adopted as a standard, along which the entire mechanism is totally re-designed as well.
Pads made of cork and leather
Cork pads and leather pads are optimally placed to maximize on their tonal quality, touch and functionality.
New toneholes maximize superior tone quality, even intonation and a uniformed response throughout the full range of the instrument.
Low E/F Pitch Correction Mechanism
The low E/F pitch correction mechanism helps bring a stabilized pitch center to that particular register.
