Yamaha YBH-621 4-Valve Bb Baritone Horn
The Yamaha YBH-621 4-Valve Bb Baritone Horn has long been one of the world’s most popular baritones, and is distinguished by a noble, rich tone. It features an easy playability-with quick and comfortable response-as well as highly accurate intonation.
Monel pistons are resistant to corrosion and are an ideal choice for professional baritone pistons which must retain precise fit and smooth action over many years.
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.
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.
“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
