The YFH-731 professional Bb flugelhorn was produced from the early 1970’s to the early 2000’s.
This model horn was later replaced with its new counterpart, the YFH-631G and YFH-631GS. When Yamaha released the YFH-631’s they added a 3rd valve kick slide trigger system that is not found on the YFH-731. This construction difference leads to a slightly lighter weight flugelhorn that feels a bit more nimble in the hands. This flugelhorn produces a warm mellow sound that can be attributed to the gold brass bell construction and a silver plating finish. The gold brass adds a bit of warmth through the overtones that some musicians prefer compared to yellow brass horns. Pair this with silver plating that helps with articulations and fronts of notes, and you get a balanced professional level flugelhorn that can suit your ensemble’s needs.
