Maker:  YAMAHA

Model:  YHR 667D

Type:  F/Bb or Bb/F full double

Bell throat profile: medium

Tubing bore/ internal diameter: 12 mm

Alloy: lacquered yellow brass, gold brass leadpipe

Bell flare: detachable

Water key: conventional type, on the leadpipe

Weight: 2.53 kg

Visual/cosmetic condition: good, with a few very small dings and some lacquer loss in the usual, expected places. Of course, these slight blemishes are merely cosmetic issues that have no effect on the horn’s excellent playing qualities.

Valve compression: excellent

Case: original Yamaha 'suitcase', heavy but very protective.

Further details: this model is well-known as an ‘easy blower’ requiring less effort than many other double horns. Generally, an excellent player with an even response over the entire range.

Price comparison: The 667D's brand-new lowest discount price is £4,091 (Alan Gregory, Manchester). I am selling this 2nd hand horn for less than 49% of the new price.

'Stop press’… I have just found out that Yamaha has only recently discontinued the 667D after more than 30 years. I predict that this model will soon become a rare and highly-sought-after ‘iconic horn’!
