Quick OverviewBaritone Marching Yamaha YBH301MS
A warm, rich tone and powerful projection make this marching baritone the preferred choice of such groups as the DCI World Champion Cavaliers Drum & Bugle Corps
The YBH-301M is ideal for DCI style marching ensembles which have no trombones. It can add a unique voice to your band, darker than a trombone yet brighter than a euphonium, a very rich and strong sound.

The precise fit between valve casings and pistons after honing means no air leakage
Perfectly rounded tubing results in less turbulence and a smoother air flow, thus allowing for an excellent scale and reduced resistance.
Laser-fused pluzuma welded bell
A high-energy laser fuses the brass together for a virtually seamless bell which allows continuous even vibrations.
Hand-lapped valves and slides
Hand-lapping valves and slides ensures an absolutely perfect fit and seal between the valve pistons and casing or slide parts. Such a perfect fit helps to achieve smooth air flow and smooth action and improve the response and intonation of the instrument.
