New leadpipe design
The 842S features a completely new leadpipe design for immediate and comfortable response.
The bottom bow has a longer, wider bow guard for a broader dynamic range and improved tonal projection.
The shape and positioning of the hand rest gives players a comfortable playing position, while Yamaha's unique moisture trap captures any condensation or oil which leaves the bottom valve cap.
The top bow features a newly designed bow guard which not only protects the instrument, but adds definition and clarity to the sound.
