Developed in cooperation with tenor horn artist Sheona White, this new alto horn features a heavy design valve casing giving more mass for a rich sound and projection.
Over her 15-year career, Sheona White has probably done more to popularize the Tenor Horn than any other exponent. Now she has achieved a new goal. Her partnership with Yamaha has resulted in a radical re-think of horn design that has resulted in this Neo Alto Horn model. Every facet of the instrument has been considered, revised and refined to perfection. And you'll hear the difference. New levels of power and projection combine with a warmth and depth that will send repercussions through the brass community and bring horn players to their rightful place at the heart of the band.

FEATURES
  • Key of Eb
  • .469" bore
  • 8.071" upright bell
  • Three Monel pistons; Heavy design valve casing

    Comments about Yamaha YAH-803S Silver:

    I've been playing (Alto) Tenor Horns for more than 30 Years. I've played Besson, Miraphone, Conn, York, Triumphonic, and others. This Yamaha Neo is by far the best I've played. I love its open blowing feel, its solid intonation, and velvety tone color. The valves are the quickest and smoothest I've ever felt. It is beautiful to behold, and a joy to play.
