If you're looking for a nice dark sound, but without the overly woolly 8D muffle - try out this 668N. It's made of lacquered Nickel and is in fine condition (with a 0.9 compression!).
There are just a couple tiny dings and some lacquer wear inside the flare - but other than that you'll be saving a LOT over a brand new one.
Yamaha fixed bell case included.
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.
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 wear for a long time without air leakage.
