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.
