I play a BBb Yahama YBB641 at my high school, its nearly new (we have 5) and to sum all 5 up in 2 words: they suck. I have played on beaten up old horns that sound twice as good as the stuffy range limiting YBB641. Ive never personally met someone who really likes that horn, and I know quite a few ppl who use them (please, feel free to say otherwise). Because of my experience on these horns i have a somewhat grim opinion of Yahama tubas (although they make many other instruments fabuously). Of course, to each his own and maybe the F is better. I'd love to hear from someone who's had an enjoyable experience with a 641 thanks!
