Great Horn

By

Comments about Yamaha YBH-301M Series Marching Bb Baritone:

My school just bought a whole line of these for marching, and at first look. I thought wow how small and light. The horn is only light because of how thin the brass is, after one marching season, almost all of the horns suffered tiny to severe dents. The lead pipe on most horns were bent at the end of the season, but they were easily fixed. The worst part of these horns are the valves, they have very long stems so the valves would bend and cause the valve to slow down and stick, particularly the first valve. Other then these physical issues, they sound great, are light and nice to have after 3 hour rehearsals, and are pretty nice looking

Great Horn.

Comments about Yamaha YBH-301M Series Marching Bb Baritone:

I have been using this same horn for the past 3 years in my marching band. I played the 3rd part for 2 years, and for low notes, i think this is excellent. Playing pedal tones are powerful and full. Sometimes the lower notes can be a little edgy, but they sound great. I just moved over to 1st baritone, and this horn is excellent for higher range notes. I use a 58 and 59 Yamaha mouthpiece and i can play the high notes with ease. I dont really have any complaints, because you can play loud and clean on this horn. If you cant play loud and clean like how i do, then you need much more practice, because this instrument does everything it is made to do

Great Quality Baritone

Comments about Yamaha YBH-301M Series Marching Bb Baritone:

Marched with this horn for a top 5 DCI group, the name of which I will not reveal. This horn feels great in your hands and looks great while you're holding it. The valves are VERY springy and have a long throw, which some may find annoying but I prefer it over some horns with short throw heavy valves. The horn itself is quite prone to dings and dents... more so than some other brands I have played on. Silver finish is rather thin as well, after one summer of abuse, a good deal of brass was exposed on the second valve slide and main tuning slide as well as the valve casings. This may be due to over polishing and overuse, but it is just what I have experienced. Projection is great when paired with a 51L or DL mouthpiece... low range can be quite stuffy at times, while mid-high range has great flexibility and agility. Overall great horn.

This horn can withstand almost anything!

Comments about Yamaha YBH-301M Series Marching Bb Baritone:

I've been using this make and model of horn in my marching band for 4 years now. It actually even sounds good for concert band; I had to use mine while my concert euphonium was being repaired. The valves play very nicely after being washed and oiled. This horn cleans up very nicely after being bathed and polished as well. It can handle being played very very loud on low notes as well as having a great sound in the higher register. Last month, however, I was letting a friend borrow my horn and he left it on the ground, and it got ran over by a truck. Aside from the bell getting dented (not too badly, surprisingly), this horn is still in great working shape. I was able to roll the dents out of the bell quite easily.

Great horn

Comments about Yamaha YBH-301M Series Marching Bb Baritone:

My high school marching band just switched over from the old school forward facing concert horns and I'm so glad we did. My band director picked these horns based on his drum corps experience. He was right. The horn allows you play with power and grace on the field. Great middle range, great high range, even good for screaming high range, but if your going below the low Bb you probably want to get a mouthpiece with a big cup. The low range is there you just need to blow. Overall from classical to jazz (or) from Gershwin to Sousa, go with the Yamaha it wonÆt let you down.

Great Horn with a couple let downs

Comments about Yamaha YBH-301M Series Marching Bb Baritone:

This is pretty much a great horn. There are just a couple problems I have with it. First of all, the valves will stick a little bit no matter how much you oil the valves, but it's not that big a problem. The biggest problem I have with it is that the metal used is a little too thin for the marching field, which in turn causes it to dent more easily, and the sound edges quicker on this horn, thus lowering the volume limit that it sounds good in. Other than these, I have no other faults with this horn. It is one of the best you can get; you just have to be a little more careful with this horn than others.
