  1. Is Yamaha yep-621S a good horn? seems like no one has metioned it here before.

    Hi, I'm a new guy here, I played euphonium in my high school and it's been 13 years now, I'm thinking of coming back to play, just for relaxing myself and I am thinking of buying yep-621s but it seems that i can't find any comments related to this horn here, is it a good horn? and about besson 1065 4valves non comp? are these horns quality close?

    I love reading this web, great infos great comments,

    thank you!

    I've recently played the new "neo" version and its a great horn. Highly recommended!

    Part of the reason that the YEP 621 isn't talked about much here is that it's a non-compensator.

    Another part is that it's largely unknown in North America because Yahama only markets it in some European countries (primarily Scandinavia) and South East Asia. (Probably to avoid cannibalizing 641/642/842 sales in the North American and British markets.)

    Bear in mind that the 621 is a small bore horn (.571-661"/14.5-16.8 mm). It does have a large shank receiver, though.

    Here's the page for the 621 on the Yamaha Japan website: http://www.yamaha.co.jp/englis...wbra1/yep621/main.htm

    I owned a 621 many years ago and, in retrospect, should have kept it.
    Nice sound, good build, superb intonation.

    Even though I now own a terrific compensating horn,I now see less
    need than I used to for the extra baggage that the compensating
    mechanism introduces.

    If you can get a 621, I would give it a real serious tryout!!

    Dan,
    You're thinking of 642.

    The 621 was a 3-top, 1-side, non-compensating model introduced in the 80s.
    I had one and should have kept it. See my post above.

    I've not played a YEP-621 myself, but it looks to me like the 621 would have the advantages of playing like a YEP-321 (bore and bell size the same) without the disadvantages... small size mpc rcvr, 4-inline valves. My question would be about the intonation, and Snorlax said it's superb.

    Well, at least the one I owned and sold
    had no pitch issues, but Yamaha is consistent enough
    that I wouldn't have concerns. ;-)

    Of course, I have only bought one instrument without
    trying in advance, and that was a 321.
