The tenor horn size has a deep, resonant sound that adds a powerful low end to ensembles. This model is tuned to the typical Eb key. Because of the larger size, tenor horns have a heavy bass end with little high frequencies, making it most suited to accompanying other instruments. The Yamaha Neo range tenor horns are able to balance the bass frequencies for a sound that retains its articulation. The YAH-803S is a stunning example of a developed sounding tenor horn.
