Artisan quality instrument
Yamaha Custom bassoons can be heard in some of the world's greatest orchestras. Why not hear one in yours? They deliver a full rich sound that allows control of the most subtle tone shadings in delicate passages, while letting you open the sound up beyond traditional limits. With redesigned tonehole shapes and positions, and ergonomic "finger-friendly" key shapes, the YFG-812C also features extremely accurate intonation and a comfortable playability. A heavier body wall facilitates a rich, authoritative sound. It is ideal for players who prefer a round, warm tone, and who require the power to balance the volume of a modern symphony orchestra.The YFG-812C has a 4-millimeter thick body wall, resulting in a darker tone that blends well with the modern orchestra.
The key systems on this instrument is hand-assembled by experienced craftsmen, with emphasis on superior quality and playability. A balancer and Bb key guard are standard, and a roller system and oversized left-hand thumb key facilitate performace of difficult passages. The left-hand little finger key and right-hand thumb and little finger keys have been located in the most natural, comfortable positions for significantly enhanced playability, allowing the performer to focus on the music rather than the instrument.
