Promenade Music sells the Yamaha 668D F/Bb double horn which combines a beautiful rich tone and commanding presence of the great vintage ‘Kruspe’ style horns. It has a large throat that provides a full sound which is rich, warm and colourful with little resistance. It projects solos, blends with a horn section, and fills a concert hall in the right hands. The bore is made of perfectly cylindrical tubing assembly and in combination with a conical leadpipe and bell system, this horn plays with consistent air flow throughout it.

The bell is hammered and annealed [the process that’s important to the horns acoustic characteristic] and the hammering enables the bell to have a rich, resonant tone; and the annealing [cooling and heating process] results in a horn that is easier to control. The response is quick and easy, and the horn offers excellent control… even for those quietest passages.
