This Yamaha 567 is in fabulous condition inside and out. The valve compression sits at .7 (very good) and there are a few minor dents and scratches on the lacquer. This would be an absolute steal for a student looking to purchase their first horn. Comes with a ProTec fixed bell gig bag horn case.
Yamaha YHR567 F / Bb Double French Horn
The YHR567 includes many adjusting options to suit any size player and make playing French horn easier and more comfortable.
The taper of the leadpipe improves response and intonation throughout the instrument.
The wrap of this model allows for a more comfortable hand position and smoother air flow.
Nickel silver inner and outer slides
The use of nickel silver inner and outer slides ensures better fit and less chance of corrosion because nickel-silver is harder and more durable than brass.
Tapered valves wear for a long time without air leakage.
Adjustable 4th rotor thumb lever
The 4th rotor thumb lever can be adjusted to fit any hand size from small student hands to large adult hands.
Easy response and sure note centering
The ease with which this horn may be played makes it ideal for students.
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.
