The Yamaha YHR667 Pro Double French Horns are known for their accurate intonation and quick response. The 667 has a warm clear sound with outstanding tone color 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. This Geyer style horn has a medium-large throat for moderate resistance to air flow. The 667 model is available in a fixed bell(YHR-667) or with a detachable bell (YHR-667D).

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.

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.

Included Accessories:
- YAC HR32C4 Horn mouthpiece; larger rim diameter and first cup volume than 30C4 for clear tone, flexible response in all registers
- YAC HRC-67 Plastic French horn case
- YAC 1012P Premium rotor oil
