What is the Yamaha “Allegro” Line of Instruments?


We are often asked about the Yamaha Allegro series of band instruments.

These instruments are a unique product line that are not available online. They are intended for students that have outgrown their student model instrument. They feature a 7-year warranty to ensure students are covered through their remaining school years. Each instrument in the series has some features that go a step beyond their traditional counterparts. For example, the Yamaha Allegro Flute YFL-371H is very similar to the standard YFL-361H, except the Allegro model features a split-E mechanism, a premium french flute case and cover, and a gold plated lip. The Allegro clarinet YCL-550 is similar to the YCL-450 but includes a premium case, features gold-plated posts and silver plated keys with a silver plated mouthpiece cap. Each instrument offers some options not available on their counterparts in addition to the extended warranty. The Yamaha Allegro trumpet features a premium case and gold-plated mouthpiece, hand-lapped monel valves, all in a silver-plated finish. The Allegro trombone features an F-attachment with an open-wrap, while the alto and tenor saxophones feature improved necks and stronger key guards.

Making the decision between the allegro line vs. the standard line of step-up instruments can sometimes be difficult, while many of the features are cosmetic or non-essential to the playability or sound of the instrument, some things like the split-E on the allegro flute might be essential!
