Yamaha ' s YSH301 sousafoon has an ABS resin cup and a FRP (fibre-reinforced plastic) body for a large tuba stound. The sousafoon is not heavy and has a good balance so that you can continue to play without difficulty. Yamaha has made the sousafoon water resistant and the design of the cup improved the sound. The intonation is very accurate and the beplayer will appreciate the easy playability.
'Hand-lapping' takes a lot of time but gives a wonderful result. 'Hand-lapped' valves provide a good response and an easy tone change.
The perfect round tubes ensure that there is less turbulence and a smooth flow of air. This will also ensure an excellent sound and a reduced resistance.
