Overview

The YFG-821 was designed for players who prefer a great degree of tonal flexibility. It is designed for soloists and others who desire maximum capability to adapt their sound to different performance situations. The bassoonist's role can vary widely depending on the material and the environment, and as such, his or her timbre must likewise adapt to the sometimes disparate requirements of the literature. Picture a chamber setting playing Mendelssohn relative to a symphony orchestra playing Mahler. The YFG-821 is at home in either environment and in any other you can imagine. Whether in a featured soloist role or in a larger ensemble constext, this is an instrument that excels, and merits consideration by any serious player.

Advanced design techniques and skilled Yamaha engineers have resolved intonation problems and tone quality inconsistencies traditionally associated with bassoons. Yamaha has created a bassoon that allows the artist to control the most subtle tone shadings in the most delicate passages, while opening up the sound beyond traditional limits.
