Professional Design and Manufacture

This model includes a hand hammered bell which increases depth to the sound produced. The Yamaha YHR667 features a hammering and annealing process that are optimized by the use of computer controlled equipment, making sure that the sound is consistently dominant. The hammering process gives the bell a rich, resonant tone and annealing is a cooling process that helps control of the acoustics to be simpler. The layout on this model is much more open which allows a freer airflow through the horn, reducing unwanted restriction when playing loud dynamics.

Double French Horn

A requirement for most french horn performers is the ability to change between the keys of F and Bb. This makes music that would normally be unplayable on a single horn more accessible. The YHR667 French horn has this ability through the use of the 4th Key, which can be changed round to play either F or Bb when depressed, giving great flexibility for the professional horn player.

Silent String Mechanism

Yamaha have included a string mechanism with the YHR667 to help provide a silent operation. This is extremely useful when playing quieter passages over its equivalent metal mechanical design. String mechanisms also offer fine adjustment and easy maintenance to the instrument.

Included Yamaha Mouthpiece and Hard Case

The YHR667 Horn includes a Yamaha 30C4. The U shaped cup on this mouthpiece produces a brighter sound and makes it easier to play in the higher register. This mouthpiece is best suited to an everyday player and is great to accommodate all needs. Also included with the French Horn is a moulded hard case which makes transportation much easier.
