A powerful sousaphone that will hold the sound together at all volumes!Hand-lapped valves and slides Hand-lapping is a time-consuming finishing process which results in an airtight valve/piston fit for noiseless, responsive action. Well-balanced The YSH-411 is well-balanced, so it is easy to hold while marching. Heavy bracing throughout Because the sousaphone is used in marching band, it has heavy bracing throughout the instrument to make it more durable at the vulnerable points. Pressure formed tubing Perfectly rounded tubing results in less turbulence and a smoother air flow, thus allowing for an excellent scale and reduced resistance.

Comments about Yamaha YSH411S BBb 4/4 size Sousaphone (with Case) (Silver-plate):

Quite heavy and can hurt your shoulder after a while and a few back problems but I guess all sousaphones are heavy. I like the sound a lot however. Great Sousaphone!

Comments about Yamaha YSH411S BBb 4/4 size Sousaphone (with Case) (Silver-plate):

I'm the Susa section leader for my band, and we use these instruments. I enjoy playing this, and it has many good features. There is only one issue I have with it, that being that my metzo-forte on the miraphone concert tuba I play is the loudest this can play. It is rather loud, and can cover an entire field, but if I must play any louder, the note either "cracks", or it jumps an octave. Over all, It is a fine instrument,and I suggest it to all.
