This Yamaha YBH301M silver marching baritone is in excellent condition and has 95%+ of the silver finish with very light player wear across the entire horn. The majority of the wear to the finish is at the player touch spots around the valve cluster and under the bell. There are some very minor dings in the back bell bow and some very minor wear to the finish on the lefthand side of the back of the horn. The bell has almost no dents and any that are here are easier felt than seen. The bell edge on the righthand side of the upper portion of the bell has a very minor wave. It is very hard to see. The second valve has a different color felt and sets slightly lower than one and three and this does not affect the playability. Please see pictures for details. The second valve casing reads “Yamaha YBH301M Made in Japan”. The serial number is “363213” and the bell reads “Yamaha Established in 1887”. The case is in good used condition and it comes with a good used Yamaha 48L mouthpiece. Yamaha marching baritones are one of the most popular marching baritones. They play open, have great action on the valves, and an excellent sound with great projection for the field or parades.
