YMP-204MS Yamaha Marching Mellophone

Impeccable intonation and a rich tone make this mellophone the preferred choice of the DCI World Champion Carolina Crown Drum & Bugle Corps.

The 204M features a rich vibrant sound with excellent tonal projection. Yamaha R&D conducted extensive field tests with leading bands, and has redesigned the bracing for a more open 'free-blowing' feel. The overall balance has also been changed making it more comfortable to hold and play, while the slide configuration has been reworked improving both intonation and tone qualities.
