The new standard in brass band instruments

Neo series BBb basses with redesigned body and handrest allow for the most subtly nuanced dynamics and tonal inflections.




The Yamaha BBb basses are designed in co-operation with Simon Gresswell to meet the needs of all brass bands. The design incorporates a large 500mm diameter bell that keeps the sound focused and always clear. They deliver a rich tone and abundant volume that provides the ensemble with a solid and stable foundation.
