The Yamaha 812 is a thick-wall bassoon designed for orchestral players. The body wall is 4mm thick. Designed after a modern Heckel bassoon, this instrument boasts a clear-powerful tone, suitable for a serious orchestral player. Plus, unlike many Yamaha instruments, the silver-plated key work is hand-made. Professional craftsmen fit the keys to each bassoon individually.

This bassoon also features easy-to-use and comfortable key work. As a result, the instrument helps players with difficult passages. A set of rollers also facilitates technical playing of the highest level.


Yamaha bassoons come in multiple configurations now, to better suit the needs of the individual player. The YFG-812 may come in the following versions:

Base 812: fully professional key work with E-F# trill and high E keys, 6 rollers, left hand whisper key lock, and a balance hanger.

812C: The same instrument but compact cut. The compact configuration from Yamaha comes as a 5-piece-style with the two metal bands on the bell. There is no long bell option.

812-22: The base model 812 with 5 additional rollers, plus a right hand whisper key lock instead of the left hand one, and a whisper A bridge key.

812C-22: The 812-22, in the compact cut.

Other Specs

Yamaha bassoons are protected by a Yamaha FGC-802N bassoon case (or the compact version, depending on the configuration). Additionally, they come with a small set of accessories including a reed case, swabs, and threaded hand rest, as well as MMI's 2-year new bassoon warranty.

Additionally, Yamaha bassoons have 2 bocals in the case: CNS1 and 2 Super Bocals. MMI can substitute the stock bocals for any other Yamaha bocals in our inventory at no additional cost, or for other brands at a reduced price for the bocal. These instruments play great with Heckel VCC bocals!
