However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 5 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 90 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first two years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 5 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

Hand-Lapped Valves and Slides

Hand-lapping results in an airtight valve/ piston fit that produces a noiseless and responsive action. This task is a time-consuming finishing process.


This Sousaphone is a well-balanced instrument that is easy to hold whilst marching.

Heavy Bracing Throughout

The Sousaphone is commonly used in marching bands and so features heavy bracing throughout the instrument to provide it with the upmost durability at its most vulnerable points.

Pressure Formed Tubing

Less turbulence and a smoother air flow are what comes of having perfectly rounded tubing. Allowing the Sousaphone an excellent scale and reduced resistance.

Fibre-Reinforced Plastic

The Yamaha Sousaphone is made from fibre-reinforced plastic that ensures the instrument remains lightweight aswell as durable. It is very important for this instrument to be lightweight as it reduces fatigue whilst players are marching.
