£900.00

 

 

 

Maker: YAMAHA, Japan

 

Model: YHR-662

 

Type: F/Bb full double

 

Bell throat profile: medium

Alloy: yellow brass, its formerly worn lacquer professionally stripped and the brass surfaces polished to a gleaming finish.

Valve compression: very good

'Amado/Getzen' water key on the leadpipe.

Silver-plated mouthpiece by 'Blessing'.

Visual  condition: generally good; there are a few very tiny 'non-invasive' surface scratches but these are purely cosmetic issues.

Case: well-used hard case.

Weight: 2.45 kg

Further details: I am selling this horn on behalf of Gerry Birch Music Services; it has very recently been overhauled and serviced in the GBMS workshop.


  With 'all the notes in all the right places' and a clear, ringing sound, this excellent, inexpensive  horn is exactly right for a young, improving player who is upgrading from a single or a ‘mini’ horn.

 Its 'sub-£2K' price qualifies it for a parallel

listing in the 'Intermediate' category, although it is 

professional-quality horn.

 

Price comparison: A brand new Yamaha 567, the modern equivalent of the 662 described above,  currently costs (best discount price) £3,500; our used horn as described above costs less than 26% of that.
