Review Date: 10/19/2006 Would you recommend the product? Yes | Price you paid?: None indicated | Rating: 9 

Pros: Great Tone, Great Intonation, Plays in tune in the upper and lower registers
Cons: Small Shank

The Yamaha YEP-321 is the best horn for any middle or high school student who wants to be that first chair player. It has superior intonation and It's an excellent solo instrument. However due to it's small shank, I'd have to give it a 9 out of 10. Overall, a great horn and the price is 0.00 because I rented it from my High School.

Pros: 4 Valves, Great Intonation, Durable
Cons: Small Shank Receiver, Constant Oiling, Responsiveness

The Yamaha YEP-321 is a great step-up horn for those youngsters who want to continue their pursuit on euphonium. Four Valves to increase range, It has superior Intonation, and for those younger, clumsier Euphonium players, It's durable. Some negative aspects include the fact it's small shank, the horn will need constant oiling at least every week, and the responsiveness is somewhat iffy. Overall, it's a great horn. However, the only ones who I would recommend this horn to is to High Beginner to lower Intermediate Euphoniumist.

Pros: Good sound, lasts forever, fourth valve
Cons: Valves get slow, small shank

Great horn. My school one is an ancient lacquer horn, prob from the 70s or early 80s. Only problems are the inevitable dents, iffy valves (you dont want to see them, it makes me shudder), and my leadpipe was almost bent in half next to the bell... but the horn still works and sounds great. My high range is pathetic (top F on a good day, otherwise top Bb) but this horn still speaks them out. Of course, without compensation, the lower register is out of tune, but i use alternate fingerings past low Eb and i can hit all but B natural. It can even rumble out double pedal BBBb, for example. Without a large bore, these notes aren't as loud or as good as they could sound, but they still project. A good horn all in all. Keep in mind that my horn is almost thirty years old and beat to great lengths. I highly recommend this horn to high schools.
