The Yamaha YMP-204M Series Marching F Mellophone is an especially responsive mellophone with a powerful upper register. Its strong, bright sound is designed to carry to the back of the football stadium. Recently improved weight distribution gives this mellophone improved balance. With improved comfort and free-blowing response, this mellophone is a very accessible instrument for a French horn player doubling on the mellophone. The YMP-204M has a .462" bore and a 10" yellow brass bell with an improved shape for optimal projection. It also has 3 nickel-plated pistons and a 1st valve slide thumb hook. This model has improved intonation over previous mellophones. This mellophone comes with a MP-14F4 mouthpiece and a case. The Yamaha YMP-204M Series Marching F Mellophone is in a lacquer or silver finish.
