Over her 15-year career, Sheona White has probably done more to popularise the Tenor Horn than any other exponent. Now, the BBC Radio 2 Young Musician of the Year 1996 has her sights set on a potentially longer-lasting legacy. Her partnership with Yamaha has resulted in a radical re-think of horn design. Every facet of the instrument has been considered, revised and refined to perfection. And you'll hear the difference. New levels of power and projection combine with a warmth and depth that will send repercussions through the brass community and bring horn players to their rightful place at the heart of the band.

Bell - The new YAH-803S features a one-piece yellow brass bell. With a diameter 5mm larger than that of the YAH-602, the new horn's dynamic range is increased noticeably.

First Branch - The first branch has features a newly designed taper improving tone and pitch.

Valve Casing - The YAH-803S's valve casing benefits from a new, heavier design. The sound becomes more rich and powerful from this additional weight.

Tuning Slide - Additional improvements to sound, pitch, dynamic range and playability have been achieved with the development of a wider, newly tapered tuning slide.
