Bauhaus ok blown one. Yamaha and Yanagisawa would be a personal choice. Both have impeccable reputations.

As you have asked for System 54 originally, go and play one. I am not a bari expert at all. My only experience was a short test drive in a music store when I didn't own a bari myself. The specific instrument was very sweet and lush. Response was really great over the whole range and intonation seemed good (no tuner at hand). Pinkies were a bit of a stretch. Caveat, I have never blown a Yanagisawa or a Yamaha baritone. Nevertheless I believe the System 54 would be worth consideration if you have a chance to test them.

Given that choice I'd go for the Yanagisawa. I've played a B900 for a good number of years and haven't found one that I like better.

Yam and yani are both excellent. I'd have bought one if I hadn't stumbled across my 'bargain' mk6 (relatively speaking).

Hi Bumnote, maybe not too much help to you, and excuse the plug, but I have the System'54 Tenor and one piece Soprano in stock so if you fancy a half hour trip up the M6 to Stoke you could have a look at them for an idea of finish and build quality.
I have supplied several System'54's (not Bari's) and customers seem very pleased with them and they appear to be high value for money, compared to other quality brands. The Bari's come in several finishes and I can have them here, to order, within 4 or 5 days. I have also performed maintenance on a Soprano and compared to the model that it is a very close copy of I would say that it's build quality and finish is superior.
