' got a 3/4 Yamaha-sized bottom bow that you can sell...??

Postby bloke » Wed Apr 25, 2018 8:38 pm

I'm going to replace a rotten mouthpipe on a Yamaha 3/4 tuba, but the bottom bow is so smashed it that I'm going to recommend repairing (replacing, if possible) it. When bottom bows are THIS smashed, it's difficult to keep the geometry the same as original - when repaired...so I'm asking if anyone might (??) have a Yamaha OR COMPATIBLE COPY 3/4 size bottom bow in GOOD CONDITION available for sale. (yeah...I could repair this one, but it wouldn't be much fun.)
...a bottom bow that would fit a Yamaha 103-104-105 or any of the Chinese knock-offs and the Weril knock-off... Yamaha 621 bottom bows are probably identical as well.
(I really don't want to get into this, and am just trying to make it easier on myself.)
thanks !

These parts are not prohibitively expensive from Yamaha. I had to replace several of these for a local middle school, although I don't remember if they came lacquered or not.

There was a Yamaha 103 on the auction site without valves or leadpipe with a buy it now price just under $200 (plus shipping). I think it's still there.

The school is only going to have the mouthpipe (on hand) replaced, a couple of solder joints repaired, and corks and felts.
Thanks for the offers !

At least, it will sit - bell-up - on the student's chair. :lol:
