Mint Condition with a case!


This Yamaha YSH301  BBb fiberglass sousaphone is in mint condition! We believe the only time this instrument has been played is when we test played it.  It is in beautiful condition with virtually no wear the instrument at all. There are two spots on the front and back of the body where the paint finish has cracked. This is superficial and just the finish is cracked which is why we ended up with it. Because of the imperfections on the finish it could not be sold at the retail location. Please see pictures.  It is in fantastic working condition! The serial number is “572965”. The engraving on the bell reads “Yamaha” and “Yamaha YSH 301 Made in Japan” on the second valve casing. It comes in a very good used case. No mouthpiece is included. A used gooseneck and bit are included.
