Further details: An excellent 'almost new' example of this popular and very lightweight single Bb/A+ horn, the more recent, modern version of the YHR-321.

It plays beautifully over the entire range, with a very clear ‘medium-bright’ sound, and has an excellent, well-defined high register.

Its detachable F extension slots into the 4th valve's  slide receivers and although it protrudes at a slightly odd angle, it works very well. The extension provides a very well-tuned middle G and its lower octave, plus, of course, most of the F horn's 'missing' pedal notes, via some ingenuity with the fingering. This is necessary in order to compensate for the Bb horn's valve slides, which are, of course, too short for the F horn.  

NB: The brand new lowest discount price of this model, but without the F extension, is £1,908. Our current horn, including the F extension, is priced at only 50% of that.
