Maker:  YAMAHA


Model: YHR 561


Type: F/Bb or Bb/F full double

Bell throat: medium

Alloy: unlacquered yellow brass; the mouthpipe is gold

brass, resistant to internal corrosion.

Bell flare: fixed

Water key: conventional type, on the leadpipe.

Serial number: 002740

Weight: 2.55 kg


Visual  condition: generally very good; there are just a few very tiny ‘non-acoustical’ dings and some small scratches, but these are purely cosmetic / visual issues. There is one small nickel silver patch, expertly made, strengthening the brass in a vulnerable place.


Case: original Yamaha hard case in good condition.


Further details: I am selling this excellent horn on behalf of Gerry Birch Music Services. It was recently fully 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.
