I am selling my 4/4 Yamaha BBb horn in gold lacquer. This horn is 5 years old and I am the only person who has ever owned this horn. The horn has a terrific tone through all registers and still looks brand new. The slides all move freely and the rotors are smooth and quiet. There are 2 minor cosmetic shortcomings. There is a 1.5 inch crinkle in the bell from an accident in a rehersal as well as minor flaking on the rotors (all shown in pictures). Through highschool, this horn took me through numerous honorbands. With this horn I was able to be named 1st chair in All State for 2 years, first chair in All South for 2 years, a part of the US All American Army Marching band, sucessful drum corps auditions, college auditions, and even making it into the Marine Musician Program. This horn is perfect for a highschool player looking to take their firdt steps towards serious playing and studying.

I am asking $8,000 OBO with the brown yamaha hard case with wheels.

Horn is located in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Would prefer not to ship but willing to drive to meet for sale.

If you haven't already done so, I'd recommend putting this on your local Craigslist and/or eBay.
There is not a lot of interest on this board for the Yamaha 641.

I happen to like this horn and have owned several, but generally most of the folks on here tend to not like them. Or those that profess to like them are quickly hushed up by the TubeNet Freak Jury.

The general public on the other hand, value Yamaha horns highly, and they tend to hold their value very well. Also lots of band directors seem to like these.

Good luck with your sale.
