YHR-567 Yamaha Intermediate Horn

Many adjusting options suit any size player and make playing French horn easier and more comfortable.

The popular 567 is a full double horn with a design very similar to the innovative 667V. Though priced as an intermediate model, it is used by some professional players in top orchestras. Its easy response and sure note centering make it ideal for students-while the colorful tone and precise intonation make it attractive to pros. The 567 is an outstanding horn and great value for its price.


Features

Leadpipe taper
The taper of the leadpipe improves response and intonation throughout the instrument.

Wrap
The wrap of this model allows for a more comfortable hand position and smoother air flow.

Nickel silver inner and outer slides
The use of nickel silver inner and outer slides ensures better fit and less chance of corrosion because nickel-silver is harder and more durable than brass.

Tapered valves
Tapered valves wear for a long time without air leakage.

Adjustable 4th rotor thumb lever
The 4th rotor thumb lever can be adjusted to fit any hand size from small student hands to large adult hands.

Easy response and sure note centering
The ease with which this horn may be played makes it ideal for students.

Excellent sound in all registers
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.

YHR-668II Yamaha Professional Horn

Kruspe style horn with large throat for full sound with little resistance.


Features

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.

Deep, warm tone colors

Secure note centers

Excellent sound in all registers
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.

Secure note centers

Accurate pitch

Even response

Tonal clarity and flexibility
The tonal clarity and flexibility of the YHR-881 makes it ideal for baroque music, chamber music, and orchestral music because it overcomes the low-range difficulties typical of descant horns by additionally serving as a single Bb horn. The YHR-882 improves on this feature even further by adding the F natural valve to give more body to the tone in the low register.

Long rotor valve
The innovative thumb valve configuration on the YHR-881 replaces linked valves, thereby reducing friction, promoting faster response, producing exquisite sound, and improving hand comfort.

Excellent sound in all registers
The combination of the secure high register and quick attack of the descant horn with the rich, warm timbre of the single Bb horn make the double descant horn ideal for many playing situations.
