About The YBB-641 Professional Bb Rotary Tuba, 4/4 size

The Yamaha YBB-641 .  It does not qualify for free shipping; a customer service representative will contact you for shipping options after your order has been placed.

The 641 professional BBb tuba features a rotary valve configuration for a traditional Teutonic sound with the kind of precise intonation and easy playability only made possible by modern engineering expertise. It is characterized by a warm dark sound with an abundance of tonal colors.

HAND-LAPPED ROTARY VALVES

Hand-lapping is a time-consuming finishing process which results in superior valve fit for noiseless, responsive action and easy tone changes.

HAND-LAPPED SLIDES

Hand-lapping achieves the perfect balance between airtightness and smooth action.

NICKEL-SILVER SPATULA KEYS

Carefully positioned nickel-silver spatula keys are strong and are capable of comfortable fast fingering.

BALL JOINTS FOR ROTARY VALVE LEVERS

The Yamaha-developed ball joints for the rotary valve levers are durable, yet achieve silent operation and light action.

LEADPIPE

The long leadpipe contributes to a beautiful, dark, smooth tone which blends well with other instruments.

TUNING SLIDE POSITION

The careful positioning of the tuning slide makes it easier to adjust the slides while playing.
