This triple horn weighs an astounding 5.6 pounds. The reason for this ultra light weight is that it is a compensating triple horn with a low F, Bb, and a High Bb descant. This is truly a specialty instrument. Owned and played professionally in the Boston Symphony. Very few of these were made. This one can be found on many recordings with the Boston Symphony. This instrument is in excellent condition and is made of unlacquered yellow brass. The serial number is 11834M, indicating it was manufactured in 1983.

All one needs as proof to know how well Yamaha horns are built is a look at the compression numbers on this 5-valve triple horn.

I'm constantly impressed with the quality and ingenuity of Yamaha instruments. This 892 Triple horn features a stopping valve and is made of unlacquered yellow brass. It has been customized by Wes Hatch and was previously owned by the principal horn of the Milwaukee Symphony. It' has been professionally maintained. The compression test reads 1.0 and that's across 6 valves (a reading of 8 would be the worst possible). An Alexander handstrap has been installed for additional comfort. Try this horn! Osmun MB1 (copy) case included.
