Although we’re fresh out of trumpets, we’ve got plenty of Mellophones, Baritones, and Tubas all looking for a new home. And you really can’t beat the quality products that YAMAHA provides! Our current stock has traveled the country with SCV & SCVC in recent years, helping propel these programs to great success. Members have spent the summer cleaning and caring for the horns daily, but these ARE used instruments and may come with an occasional bump, bruise, or scratch. Rest assured – we will never ship a horn with major damage or broken parts!
