Yamaha YHR-667 Geyer Series Fixed Bell Double French Horn
The Yamaha YHR-667 Geyer Series fixed bell double French horn is a professional horn made for discriminating players who prefer a large throat instrument for moderate resistance to air flow.
Features include hand-lapped rotary valves and slides, rotary valves and slides that have been hand-lapped are airtight and have smooth action. Articulated key levers have responsive motion and the hammered and annealed bell, processes so important to the instrument's acoustic characteristics, ensure consistently superior sound. Hammering enables bells to have a rich, resonant tone that blends beautifully with other instruments. Annealing is a cooling and heating process that makes it easier to control the acoustics of the instrument.
This instrument’s cyclical bore in combination with a conical leadpipe and bell system allows for consistent airflow throughout the horn. Its tapered valves wear for a long time without air leakage.
This horn has a warm and clear sound, great tone color flexibility with rich, focused core, and excellent projection in any venue. Its accurate intonation and comfortable, quick response make it a favorite among orchestral players the world over. The combination of the secure high register, strong projection, and quick attack of the Bb horn with the rich, warm timbre of the F horn make the double horn ideal for most playing situations.
Includes mouthpiece, a plastic French horn case and premium rotor oil. All Yamaha brass & wind instruments come with a limited 5-year warranty.
