£1,990.00

Maker: YAMAHA

 

Model: YHR-765G

 

Type: Full double Bb/F (currently) or F/Bb.

Bell throat profile:  medium-large

Alloy: lacquered gold brass.

Bell flare:  detachable

Lacquer / Cosmetics: generally good / 'has seen some use'; there is about 20% lacquer wear and loss in the usual places, and several  dings, scuffs and scratches, purely cosmetic issues that do not detract from the horn’s fine playing qualities. I will be removing the dings (some of which can be seen in the photo) before sale.

Valve compression: excellent.

NB The 4th valve spring is very strong!

Case: original Yamaha flat ‘suitcase’.

Further details:  a lovely player with great fluency over the whole range, a concentrated, ringing sound and a very secure high register. Overall, a great instrument for the player who is looking for an fine, professional-quality, free-blowing and mechanically excellent horn with just a few visual blemishes.

It is also listed in the 'Intermediate' category on account of its relatively inexpensive price.

NB: if this were my horn I would definitely have a water key (or better still, a JOY-KEY or two) fitted. I find it inexplicable that a professional-quality horn such as this doesn't have this very necessary performance aid already installed as a standard feature.
