The YAH203 Eb Alto Horns
An excellent intermediate instrument
Durable construction, combined with the type of sound needed to perform the necessary role in the brass band setting, make the 203 an excellent choice.Pistons
Three nickel-alloy nickel-plated pistons resist corrosion and are durable.
Hand-lapped valves and pistons
Hand-lapping is a time-consuming finishing process which results in an airtight valve/piston fit for noiseless, responsive action
Pressure formed tubing
Perfectly rounded tubing results in less turbulence and a smoother air flow, thus allowing for an excellent scale and reduced resistance.
Laser-fused pluzuma welded bell
A high-energy laser fuses the brass together for a virtually seamless bell which allows continuous even vibrations.
