Yamaha YHR667 Full Double F/Bb French Horn

Has a Fixed Bell, 12mm bore, Lacquer Finish, Solid Valve Rotors

The 667 has a warm clear sound with outstanding tone colour flexibility, giving players free rein to express their own musical personalities. The clean sound has a rich, focused core for excellent projection in any venue. Accurate intonation and comfortable quick response have made this one of the world's most popular French horns.


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.

Warm, clear sound
Great tone color flexibility with rich, focused core

Excellent projection in any venue

Accurate intonation

Comfortable, quick response

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.

Available feature
The YHR-667 horn is available with a detachable bell (YHR-667D).
