Musikmesse 2016: Yamaha Unveil New Professional and Custom French Horns
The new YHR-671 incorpirates modern features into a traditional horn design. It features a variety of exciting design changes for the advancing student or professional horn player while retaining Yamaha value, quality and consistency.
The new YHR-871 offers the most dramatic change to the Yamaha horn line-up in decades. Enlisting top artists from major symphony Orchestras around the world, Yamaha built a horn that will satisfy the most descening players.
As a result, the YHR-871 is designed to help players achieve their ultimate goal of expression and artistry. It blends traditional designs with modern technology to produce tonal characteristics that span the entire spectrum of sound — from a rich, centered tone with depth and warmth to a lively, responsive tone that stands out on demand.
Another brand new addition to the Yamaha range is the YHR-869D. Based on a Geyer type with a distinct new wrap, it signals a new era in Yamaha's Custom French Horn line-up.
Its unique valve section with specially designed inner shapes gives this instrument a beautiful ‘German’ sound. The new lead-pipe design offers strong resistance, well balanced intonation, a quicker response and makes legato passages easier to play.
