Any repair technician will tell you that removing lacquer from Yamaha brass instruments is difficult to say the least. That being said, many players swear by unlacquered 667 models. And this one has already gone through the expense of being stripped and now has that nice burnished patina and sound. This horn is all original with a Yamaha bell ring. The bumpers have been replaced and there are only a few tiny dings in it. The compression is 1.9. Yamaha no longer makes this model, it was replaced with the 671D. Yamaha Detachable bell case is included.
Wonderful! Shipping was fast and protective. Horn is in great shape! I love it!
