YBB-202MWC Yamaha Marching Only Tuba

Field tested by three of the countries top Drum Corps, the new marching only tuba received a resounding stamp of approval.

This has to be the ultimate tuba for any marching ensemble. The huge bell produces a massive sound, yet the 202M is easy to hold and easy to play. Despite its wide powerful sound, this instrument is actually lighter in weight than any other comparable tubas. Adjustable leadpipe positioning allows the player to control the balance of the entire tuba, and the vertical valve configuration provides comfortable, natural hand positioning.


Features

Larger bell design
This new model marching tuba features a 21" bell. The larger bell 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.

Newly Designed Case
The new durable case with wheels is designed for convenient transport.
