Yamaha YHR-668NII Full Double F/Bb French Horn



Professional Nickel-Silver model in Clear lacquer finish - 'Kruspe' style with Fixed bell



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



The 668 combines the beautiful rich tone and commanding presence the great vintage 'Kruspe' style horns. And adds to it state-of-the-art intonation and playability. The tone is rich, warm and colourful. It can project solos or blend with the section and is so full of life it can fill any concert hall. While the response is quick and easy, and offers excellent control even at pianissimo.



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 colours



Secure note centres



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.
