Model: YHR-765

Type: Full double F/Bb or Bb/F

Bell throat profile:  Medium-Large

Bell diameter: 12 inches

Bore: 12 mm

Alloy: lacquered gold brass

Bell flare:  detachable

Lacquer / Cosmetics: generally good; there is some lacquer wear and loss in the usual places, and some very minor scuffs and scratches, purely cosmetic issues that do not detract from the horn’s fine playing qualities.

Valve compression: excellent. NB The valve springs are 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 excellent, professional-quality, free-blowing and mechanically superb 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) fitted to it. I find it inexplicable that a professional-quality horn doesn't have this very necessary accessory already installed as 'standard'!
