Comments about Yamaha YSH-411SWC Series Brass BBb Silver Sousaphone with Hard Case:
I got to use one of these brand new to use at university this year. The horn is setup just right to have most of the moisture to dump from the 2nd water key. The only issue that I had with the horn all year was the neck on all the new models separated from the bottom part that goes into the neck receiver (the neck is 2 parts sodered together). I want to say that there was a batch of them that had problems with the sodering because just about all of the new horns had this issue. The older neck I was using from an older yamaha of the same make was made better. The mouth piece it comes with is one of my favorite tuba mouthpieces. The horn is about the same bore as other American makes and would have to say is slightly lighter. Overall, its not a bad horn. It has a different setup as to how the mouth piece / neck acceptor works compared to other brands of sousaphones, making you have the horn on your shoulder a specific way and mouthpiece on your face a specific way. I would say that it was at more of an angle on my face than other makes of horns, probably due to making the horn drain better while on your shoulder. Tone of the horn isn't bad and you can play decent ranges and volume on it with no major issues. Its easy to carry on right shoulder for when you have to just move around to get to places and aren't playing.
