About the Neo tenor horn, Arfon comments:
"As a tenor horn player, you strive to produce the warm, vibrant sound that belies the instrument's character. The hours put into the development of Yamaha Neo's design allows me to reach the instrument’s full potential, in terms of tone quality, range, as well the heavy technical demands that are asked of brass band players by composers and arrangers. Above everything else, the Yamaha Neo is an absolute joy to play. I can rely on it to perform every time is comes of out of the case, which allows me to just get on with what I love, making music. "
