The Yamaha YCH-6018 Intermediate Chimes and YCH-7018 Professional Chimes were completely redesigned to deliver rich, fundamental tones and luxurious sustain.

Designed with both professional orchestras and school band programs in mind, the larger YCH-7018 provides players with long sustain and a wide dynamic range – giving percussionists the power to stand out in large ensembles, while the YCH-6018 has a lower playing position by 10 centimeters, making the model ideal for players at the intermediate level.

Both models were crafted with a new silver head cap design that results in richer tones, enhanced volume, and improved pitch definition and playability, as well as a redesigned hanger to make playing fast passages much easier. Each model features professionally tuned, lacquered tubes, measuring 1-1/2" and 1-1/4" respectively, and offers a full 3-octave (C52-to-F69) range. They include a redesigned chime tube hanging system that is unique to Yamaha, oversize casters for easy transport, a chime mallet and a cover to protect the instrument from dust and scratches. The 7000 Series features a height adjustment capability, while the 6000 Series is slightly lower in height allowing the model to be easily adjusted for players at the school band level. Also available is a six-tube chime stand, the YCHS-7006, to accommodate specialized performances and the new chime mallet, the YCHM-38P.

The YCH-6018 (MSRP: $7,000), YCH-7018 (MSRP: $9,486), YCHS-7006 (MSRP: $1,864) and YCHM-38P (MSRP: $60.00) will begin shipping in March 2020.
