Yamaha YEP-321S

  • Summary: This has NEVER be marketed as a PRO HORN, so I can't understand the above rant. Quality, intonation, sound, finish, are all great. Check the euphonium sites and they all say that Yamahas (including this one) have great intonation. It plays easy & sounds good, valves are smooth. There is a reason that these are pretty much the standard for a good quality, 4 valve, non-compensating student instrument.
  • Pros: Good sound, good build quality
  • Cons: none

  • Summary: Well, from the begining I felt that this horn is not professional. For a student, it would be OK, but if what you want is response, intonation, sound quality, but specially in the top and the bottom register, THIS IS NOT YOUR HORN. As it's small shank, producing sound is easy, but giving quality to the sound, it's... impossible. In the top register, this horn sounds bad and out of intonation. The bottom register may be OK, cause it's small shank.
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: Intonation, valve action, small sank

  • Summary: I have played two of these. One was from 1974 and the other was from 1998. It says a great deal about Yamaha's commitment to standardization that they both sounded and responded alike. The response of these horns is good, and so are the Yamaha valves. These are good euphoniums, but, as with most Yamahas, quite expensive. I have racked up a few complaints over the years about these euhphoniums, but not many.
  • Pros: good dark tone, hardy valves, useful fourth valve
  • Cons: fourth valve slide is unprotected, this horn is heavy
