Two Body Types
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-812 comes with FGC-802N case.
YFG-812C is a compact type bassoon and has an extra joint which permits the use of a smaller case, FGC-802C.
