The taper of the leadpipe improves response and intonation throughout the instrument. The wrap of this YHR567 french horn enables players to perform more comfortably because of the improved hand positioning and smoother airflow. The adjustable 4th rotor thumb lever makes it possible for more people to play the instrument, from small student hands to large adult hands. Better fit and less chance of corrosion are the result of the nickel silver inner/outer slides. This material is harder and more durable than brass which is how it is capable of achieving this.
A requirement for most french horn performers is the ability to change between the keys of F and Bb. This makes music that would normally be unplayable on a single horn more accessible. The YHR567 French horn has this ability through the use of the 4th Key, which can be changed round to play either F or Bb when depressed, giving great flexibility for the professional horn player.
Yamaha have included a string mechanism with the YHR567 to help provide a silent operation. This is extremely useful when playing quieter passages over its equivalent metal mechanical design. String mechanisms also offer fine adjustment and easy maintenance to the instrument.
The YHR567 combines secure high registers, sound projection, and quick attack to produce its much loved rich, warm timbre of the F horn, making this instrument suitable for most playing situations. - Ideal for students who wish to experiment with their musical abilities.
The YHR567 comes with a Yamaha 32C4 Mouthpiece which helps the performer to achieve a full range with a warm and satisfying tone. A Hard but lightweight moulded case is also included with this instrument - making transportation of the Horn between gigs and rehearsals much easier.
