Two custom

YFG-811 (photo left), which adopted the standard pipe wall thickness and pursued the universal appearance of bassoon. Regardless of the player and the style of play, it responds flexibly. It boasts a wide range of expression power. On the other hand, YFG-812 (right picture) is a heavy type whose wall thickness is thicker than 4 mm thick. It realizes the dark and well-mixed timbre required for contemporary orchestras.

Scrutiny material

Only Yamaha 's plentiful European Maple materials used only for sound selection. Although it is a material that is considered to be extremely difficult to process, Yamaha has also introduced the trends of drying and processing technology for wood that has been cultivated here for 100 years.

Tube processing without compromise

It is the crafting man's technique to change the carefully designed design to the reality such as tube and tone hole inner diameter / position. I carefully worked with the hands of people who know the heart of the tree and the heart of music. We aimed at perfection for the inner pipe and the assembly inside the wood pipe, aimed at a stable instrument from the aspect of durability. In addition to tube processing, we also introduce state-of-the-art digital technology, eliminating the disadvantages of the conventional bassoon's pitch. The hard work of the player "taking a pitch" is in the past.

Pipe coating

Adopted paint that has excellent fixability and difficult to peel off for tube coating. It boasts outstanding durability.

We applied a finish that matched Japanese climate and culture.

Key system (System is common to both 811 and 812)

All key systems are handworked by skilled craftsmen one by one, pursuing operability and quality. Balancer and B ♭ kei guard are equipped as standard, and adopting the roller system and the thumb key of the left hand which was considered a difficult point of the performance are designed one size larger.In addition, by setting the left hand little finger key, the right hand thumb, the little finger key etc etc in a natural and reasonable position, it improves operability and the player can concentrate on musical expression.
