Yamaha 301 Baritone Horn
Ideal for the beginner, this Bb baritone horn is versatile and responds easily.
The YBH-301 incorporates a similar design as that of our top model 621, and shares many of its tonal characteristics. Easy to play, the 301 features excellent intonation.
The precise fit between valve casings and pistons after honing means no air leakage.
Pressure formed tubing
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.
Original wrap design
The wrap of the Yamaha baritones makes the instruments comfortable to play.
The YBH-301 is an all-around instrument with a quick response and correct intonation, making it ideal for students.
“Musical power cannot exist without delicacy. The most thunderous fortissimo must also embody expressive tone. The pursuit of that sublime balance between power and nuance is the greatest challenge facing every low brass instrument maker. Yamaha low brass instruments incorporate innovative design while remaining true to the basics. Tradition fuses seamlessly with innovation in bells, tapers, valves, and tubing, balancing strength with subtlety in instruments of outstanding functional beauty and exquisite sound that is stable and distinctive while blending beautifully in an ensemble. Low brass plays a vital role in any ensemble, so we’re dedicated to creating instruments that inspire confidence and pride. ” – Yamaha
