View Full Details

The YFG-812C is a custom bassoon, has a long-seasoned maple body (thick wall) and compact type.

Yamaha Custom bassoons, which are considered the finest bassoons currently being produced, can be heard in some of the world’s greatest orchestras. They deliver a full rich sound which allows control of the most subtle tone shadings in delicate passages, while letting you open the sound up beyond traditional limits. With redesigned tonehole shapes and positions, and ergonomic “finger-friendly” key shapes, they also feature extremely accurate intonation and a comfortable playability.

The 812, with a heavier body wall, features a rich, authoritative sound. It is ideal for players who prefer a round, warm tone, and who require the power to balance the volume of a modern symphony orchestra.

Ideal for players who prefer a round, warm tone, and who require the power to balance the volume of the modern symphony orchestra. Advanced design techniques have resolved intonation problems and tone quality inconsistencies traditionally associated with bassoons. This is a bassoon that allows the artist to control the most subtle tone shadings in the most delicate passages, while opening up the sound beyond traditional limits.

Features:

Body: The YFG-812 has a heavier 4-millimeter thick body wall, resulting in a darker tone that blends well with the modern orchestra.

Key Systems: 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.

Case: Compact type bassoons have an extra joint which permits the use of a smaller case, FGC-802C.

- Trill keys: F-G, E-F#
- Auxiliary Keys: High D key, 6 roller keys (low C#, low Eb, F#, Ab little finger, Ab thumb, F), Bb key guard, Balancer
- Toneholes: Heckel system
- Keys: Silver-plated nickel silver

Cosmo Music's Quality Assurance:

Wind Instruments

  1. Unpack instrument removing all corks used to stabilize keys during shipment.
  2. Leave the instrument to allow the pads to "relax".
  3. A visual inspection is done to ensure the finish is at factory standards.
  4. Lubricate corks with factory approved grease.
  5. Check and adjust the fit of components to ensure a firm, but not excessive pressure is needed to assemble; out of the box many corks are too tight and the player could easily cause damage to parts by having to apply too much pressure.
  6. Inspect the key action.
  7. Check pad coverage and adjust where necessary.
  8. Check all key combinations for proper adjustment.
  9. Play-test each instrument throughout its entire range to confirm all adjustments are correct.
  10. All instruments are played with the technician's own mouthpiece or head joint, unless it is not appropriate (in the case in which the mouthpiece or headjoint is unique to the instrument, they are thoroughly cleaned after play-testing).
  11. The case is checked for proper fit.
  12. Factory supplied accessories are inspected to ensure all are present.
  13. Large saxophone keys may be refitted with shipping corks to increase stability for transit.
  14. The instrument is repacked as it was received.
  15. Technician signs the tag to confirm that all details have been completed.
