a double flare taper and a unique embouchure hole undercut
design for excellent response and a warm rich tone, which
helps beginners quickly learn to produce a beautiful sound.

in all registers.
Key posts have been thickened and redesigned for improved
durability and strength to maintain accurate rod alignment.
All key shapes and placement have been ergonomically designed
for a comfortable, natural-feeling performance. The keys are
hand-assembled and adjusted for perfect balance and ‘touch.'
Yamaha's unique screw resistance inserts allow smooth adjustments
while preventing gradual loosening of the screws. For easier
access, the screw positioning has been changed.
