Redesigned Bore Taper

Thicker body walls help to maintain a bright tone with deep resonance, while a redesigned bore taper helps to achieve a solid tonal core even in soft passages. Excellent playability and broad expressive capability are available right up to the highest notes.

Silver Key Posts, Plates, Keys, and Rings

Silver key posts, key post plates, keys, and body rings contribute to rich, expressive resonance and broad expressive freedom.

Pointed Key Arms

Traditional French style pointed key arms add sophisticated appearance and feel.

Straubinger™ Piccolo Pads

Straubinger piccolo pads are employed in a Yamaha piccolo for the first time, providing an excellent seal and clear response that bring out the instrument’s full tonal potential. In addition to improved note clarity and breath response, these pads offer excellent long-term shape retention and durability.

Wave-shape Blowhole

The area of the head joint surrounding the blowhole features a wave shape that improves attack definition, response, and overall playability.

Case & Case Cover

In addition to a dedicated case, Yamaha now offers a fitted case cover for extra carrying convenience.
