Yamaha YHR-667 F/ B-flat Double French Horn, Geyer Wrap

    About the Yamaha YHR-667 Double French Horn

    Geyer style horn with medium-large throat for moderate resistance to air flow.

    Hand-lapped rotary valves and slides

    Rotary valves and slides that have been hand-lapped are airtight and have smooth action.

    Articulated key levers

    Articulated key levers have responsive motion.

    Hammered and annealed bell

    Hammering and annealing are processes so important to the instrument's acoustic characteristics that Yamaha employs computer-controlled equipment to 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.

    Cyclical bore

    A cyclical bore is a perfectly cylindrical tubing assembly in combination with a conical leadpipe and bell system. This allows for consistent air flow throughout the horn.

    Tapered valves

    Tapered valves wear for a long time without air leakage.
