Maker:  YAMAHA

Model:  YHR 667

Type:  F/Bb or Bb/F full double

Bell throat profile: medium

Alloy: lacquered yellow brass, gold brass leadpipe

Bell flare: fixed

Water key: conventional type, on the mouthpipe

Weight: 2.49 kg

Visual/cosmetic condition: good, hardly any signs of use apart from some small lacquer scratches inside the bell flare and several others on the outside of the bell 'neck' just above the name engraving. Of course, these are purely cosmetic issues that have no effect on the horn’s excellent playing qualities. There are a few tiny 'non-invasive' dings.

Valve compression: excellent

Case: original Yamaha hard case.

Further details: this model is well-known as an ‘easy blower’ requiring less effort than many other double horns. Although a professional-quality horn, its very reasonable price accounts for its additional listing in the 'Intermediate' category.

 Generally, an excellent player with an even response over the entire range. 

Price comparison: This horn's brand-new lowest discount price is £3,606 (Alan Gregory, Manchester).

'Stop press’… I recently found out that Yamaha has now discontinued the 667 after over 30 years. So, I now predict that this model will soon become a rare and highly-sought-after ‘iconic horn’!
