OVERVIEW

A powerful sousaphone that will hold the sound together at all volumes.

The Yamaha YSH-411WC Series Brass BBb Lacquer Sousaphone features a brass body and bell for an incredibly rich almost orchestral sound. The bell front design enhances tonal projection, while the intonation is state-of-the-art. Players will appreciate the securely centered notes and easy playability, while band directors will value its durability.

The YSH-411 features hand-lapped the valves and slides with an airtight valve/piston fit for noiseless, responsive action; heavy bracing to make it more durable at the vulnerable points; and perfectly rounded tubing results in less turbulence and a smoother airflow, thus allowing for an excellent scale and reduced resistance. The included 67C4 brass mouthpiece offers all-around versatility. With smooth, mellow tone throughout the instrument's range and plenty of volume and power. Comes with YAC RVO superior valve oil, and a SHC-43 molded plastic case with wheels

Excellent sousaphone

Comments about Yamaha YSH-411SWC Series Brass BBb Silver Sousaphone with Hard Case:

I help out at a local college that has these sousaphones, and I was pleasantly surprised when I finally got to play one. The intonation is quite good (better than the Conn 20K), the response is even and easy, and the sound is big and textured. The sound is thick and has a brighter 'edge' to it than the Conn 20K, but is also clearer than the 20K. The valves are nice and smooth, but you have to oil them somewhat frequently. Slides are smooth and well-aligned. Craftsmanship seems very good with the thick, durable bracing and metal. Fit and finish is superb. I think these are better-made than most/all of the modern sousaphones. I've played on many King and Conn sousaphones, as well as an old Selmer Signet sousaphone. The Yamaha 411 stacks up with the best of 'em. This is an expensive sousaphone, but you are paying for quality. Highly recommended if you want a quality, modern sousaphone and have the money for it!

Decent

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.
