I checked all of my catalogs and I don't have any listing for a YEB-381 tuba. Could it be a typo? The top action instrument is a YEB-321, though it isn't really a 3/4 size tuba. Now you've got me really curious! I wonder if the seller could email you a photo of the horn. In any event, it is a model I've never heard anything about. And I looked for a similar type horn when I bought my Cervany AEB-641. I was specifically looking for a small Eb and I even tried out one of the Yamaha YFB-621 tubas because I couldn't find a smaller Eb with 5 valves. I had heard rumors that Yamaha was going to try making some of the YFB-621 tubas in Eb but I was never able to find one. I ended up buying the Cervany and adding the 5th valve to it. Maybe someone else can post some info on this Eb model of Yamaha's, if it actually exists.
