Yamaha Bassoon YFG 811


The 811 with its slightly thinner body wall offers an elegant, gentle sound but with a clear focus for tonal projection. It features a very easy response and great evenness between registers.


The YFG-811 (left) features a standard body wall thickness, providing universal compatibility and broad expressive capability for the widest range of players and playing styles. The YFG-812 (right) has a heavier 4-millimeter thick body wall, resulting in a darker tone that blends well with the modern orchestra.

The key systems on these instruments are hand-assembled by experienced craftsmen, with emphasis on superior quality and playability. A balancer and Bb key guard are standard, and a roller system and oversized left-hand thumb key facilitate performace of difficult passages. The left-hand little finger key and right-hand thumb and little finger keys have been located in the most natural, comfortable positions for significantly enhanced playability, allowing the performer to focus the music not the instrument.

YFG-811 comes with FGC-802N case.
