The Yamaha YBB-105MSWC Convertible Marching BBb 3/4 Tuba with Silver-Plated Finish features a convertible leadpipe that allows for concert band or marching band use. This instrument offers the versatility of a single instrument which is perfectly at home in either marching ensemble or in the concert hall. And its durable construction guarantees a long life of performances.
Hand-lapped pistons: Hand-lapping is a time-consuming finishing process which results in superior valve fit for noiseless, responsive action and easy tone changes.
Hand-lapped slides: Hand-lapping achieves the perfect balance between airtightness and smooth action.
Precision brace design and placement: The design and placement of the braces ensure maximum durability as well as optimum tone.
Bore size: The .661" bore of the YBB-105M achieves the ideal balance between easy response and solid, authoritative sound.
Bell flare: The specially designed bell flare delivers outstanding projection with warm, rich tone.
Leadpipe taper: Faultless intonation and well-centered notes are the result of the extended taper on the leadpipe.
Well-balanced: The YBB-105M has been designed so it is easy to handle while marching.
Heavy bracing throughout: Because this tuba is used in marching band, it has heavy bracing throughout the instrument to make it more durable at the vulnerable points.
