The Yamaha YBB-202MSWC Marching BBb 4/4 Tuba with Silver-Plated Finish was built for today’s top drum corps. This model features a larger 21” bell that produces a bigger sound with improved projection.
Hand lapped slides: Hand-lapping is a time-consuming finishing process which results in superior valve fit for noiseless, responsive action and easy tone changes. Hand-lapping achieves the perfect balance between air tightness and smooth action.
Clear epoxy lacquer: Microscopic, electronically charged particles of lacquer are attracted to and deposited evenly on the surface of the instrument carrying the opposite charge. This produces an exceptionally thin, uniform coating that can be oven hardened for maximum durability without compromising the instrument's sound.
Top Action Valves: Three top action valves in a traditional marching configuration.
Case: A durable case with wheels is designed for convenient transport.
Bell Diameter: 21" Upright Bell
Leadpipe: Gold Brass
Bell Material: Yellow Brass
Pistons/ Valves: (3) Nickel-plated, vertical action
