Brilliant execution of a classic design.

This Yamaha YFH-631G Professional Flugelhorn features traditional vertical valve tubing with Monel pistons that are resistant to corrosion and retain precise fit and smooth action over many years. Hand-lapped pistons and slides ensure an absolutely perfect fit and seal between the pistons and casing or slide parts for smooth air flow and action as well as improved response and intonation. Movable mouthpiece receiver for easier tuning. Perfectly rounded, pressure-formed tubing results in less turbulence and a smoother airflow for an excellent scale and reduced resistance. A high-energy laser fuses the bell brass together for a virtually seamless bell which allows continuous even vibrations. Third valve slide trigger assembly (YAC YFTR).

Comments about Yamaha YFH-631G Series Bb Flugelhorn:

This is my first flugelhorn and it is definetly what I was looking for: a dark mellow sound, so different from the sound of my trumpet. In my opinion, the mouthpiece is a perfect match to this horn.
This flugel is really well finished, beautiful golden valves and a little reddish bell. I love it.
The only cons so far is the "water sound", I need to use the water keys more often than in my trumpet

nice core to sound

By kevin Failoni

from Scottsdale AZ

Comments about Yamaha YFH-631G Series Bb Flugelhorn:

It maintains enough darkness with Yamaha mpc which I think is the best mpc for this horn.Great intonation and more open blow.

Great, but I have played better

By Grant-7pUn-

from Chicago, IL

Comments about Yamaha YFH-631G Series Bb Flugelhorn:

I at first owned an Olds MF13RT or whatever the model # is for the one with a rose bell on this site, and it played okay, but it then found a really flat first slide that just wouldn't do and returned it. So, I was on a quest to find a new one and this horn happened to come across in the process. It plays very well, though compared to it's greater rivals (the legendary Couesnon and the very rare Martin), it's only alright. The tone is fairly good and is a very flexible horn too. The valves work really well. If you can get a trigger put on the 3rd slide, that'd be a big plus because that's one of the few things its lacking. Overall, it's a good horn.

HARD TO BEAT THIS

By Bryan Cruz

from Indianapolis

Comments about Yamaha YFH-631G Series Bb Flugelhorn:

I've played on the "S" (silver) version of this horn for over 20 years. And have been shopping recently for a more mellow sound I simply forgot that Yamaha made this lacquered version with the extra copper. As soon as I picked it up, I could feel that it was heavier -- not much -- but enough to feel the difference, and of course, hear the difference.I know there is a lot of theory out there as to whether a silver plated horn is brighter than a lacquer or not -- some believe that the extra metal of the silver adds weight, therefore, adds mellowness. There's both true and false in this: And I can tell you from having them side by side that my silver horn is "punchier" - if you know what I mean. It can "become" edgier if I push it there whereas the lacquered version just doesn't want to go there. Conversely, I CAN NOT make my silver horn as mellow as that copper metal in the lacquer version. So I love this horn! I played 6 pro-horns against my silver 631 - all in lacquered versions -- this included the "Z" horn (which I like a lot also). My horn of choice was this model. But I'm still waiting to try Leblanc's Sandoval model, and the Kanstul copper horn. Overall rating: "A"

Excellent tone, intonation and value

By Paul-x4UXX

from Oxfordshire, UK

Comments about Yamaha YFH-631G Series Bb Flugelhorn:

This flugel plays great, with better tone and intonation than the Jupiter 846 copy. I have found the mouthpiece an issue. It's solved by getting a deep cup Curry FL or similar mouthpiece with a bigger throat because this flugel is almost too efficient on air. I also find it easy to grip this flugelhorn one-handed. I'm only aware of Courtois and Conn making better flugels.

Nice, but a little stuffy

By Sean-a2V9m

from Central Illinois

Comments about Yamaha YFH-631G Series Bb Flugelhorn:

I am just a hobbyist, but consider myself a decent and strong player. I found that the horn is free blowing in the low to mid range, but becomes very stuffy above staff. I tried several different mouthpieces and had the same result. A few friends tried it and felt the same way. The overall flexibility was not what I expected from a horn of this caliber.

My Flugel of Choice

By K. Freesen

from Meredosia, IL USA

Comments about Yamaha YFH-631G Series Bb Flugelhorn:

If you're after a smooth, easy to play jazz flugelhorn, this is it. Yamaha makes an excellent flugel. Even though I personally play on a rose brass model, the entire section of the Western Illinois University Jazz Studio Orchestra plays on this horn. The blend is amazing and what a mellow tone!

This is a very good horn and it is very free blowing.

By CHINGON

from new mexico, united states

Comments about Yamaha YFH-631G Series Bb Flugelhorn:

this is a very good horn that produces a very rich and dark tone. it is very free blowing and is the best flugelhorn i've played on in a very long time. any one looking to play jazz should have a flugel and this is probably the best one you can buy. if silver or gold you can't do better than this horn.

Great Sound, In Tune!!!!

By Jason-L6NWw

from Oklahoma City

Comments about Yamaha YFH-631G Series Bb Flugelhorn:

This horn is the only flugel that I have played that has a nice core to the sound, and also plays in tune, in my opinion, this model is also superior to the old 731(silverplated version), It has outplayed 3 different 731's that I have stacked it against. You can't go wrong with this horn.
