This is an impeccable condition Yamaha YBH-831 Neo Baritone Horn in lacquer. These relatively new models have been extremely well received and it's a treat to have one available in second hand stock. The 831 is the first 3 valve Yamaha Baritone to feature a compensating system (more on this below). This particular instrument has been extremely well cared for and makes for a great bargain when compared to the new price (£3,500+) for something in 'nearly new' condition. Supplied with original case and Yamaha 48 mouthpiece.

The 831 Neo represented a big step forward for Yamaha in their Baritone production quality, check out some of the specs and improvements below:

Compensating System 

The 3-valve compensating system is a traditional baritone type with an original tubing configuration for improved pitch compensation. By allowing breath to flow through the bypass tubes of valves that are pressed simultaneously with the third valve, pitch accuracy in the mid to low range is markedly improved. You can play in the normal way, without using a trigger or alternate fingerings, making it easier to concentrate on the music. 

Original Taper and Large Bell - The original main tube taper and large bell add clarity and projection to a deep, magnificent baritone timbre that won’t get lost in powerful tutti passages. 

Leadpipe - In addition to featuring a new design that offers ideal playing resistance, the leadpipe is not soldered to the bell so that the full, natural resonance of the instrument is available for superior expressive capability. 

Enhanced Playing Comfort - Slim valve casings and a hand rest mounted parallel to the valves contribute to a natural, stress-free hand position, while lightweight pistons make the action quick and agile. 

Case - The supplied Neo case features a nameplate and shoulder pad for convenient carrying.
