Musikmesse 2016: Yamaha Unveil New Professional and Custom French Horns

New Yamaha French Horns
New Yamaha French Horns
Introducing the new YHR-671 professional french horn and YHR-871 custom french horn from Yamaha. Both models offer improved features including a longer pull ring and adjustable 4th thumb lever for comfort and convenience, nickel-plated rotary caps to help sustain durability and a new gold-brass leadpipe design to create a beautiful rich tone and consistent airflow that will provide greater sound character.

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.

Also available in detachable bell options - YHR-671D professional french horn and YHR-871D.

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.
