The Yamaha YHR-871D offers the most dramatic change to the Yamaha horn line-up in decades. Utilizing the much sought-after YHR-861 and legendary Yamaha manufacturing consistency as benchmarks, Yamaha enlisted top artists from major symphony Orchestras around the world to help them build a horn that will satisfy the most discerning 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.

Yamaha have designed the YHR871D around a developed tone and easy playability. An example of this includes the Bb 2nd valve slide, which benefits from a long pull ring for convenient use. The fourth rotor thumb lever and pinky hook can be manually adjusted to each player’s preference for a more comfortable playing position. The engraved valve caps enhance the response and are a more gripped surface for convenience. This model has a detachable bell, so you can customise it to your own preference. These are just some of the ways where the YHR871D proves it is a sophisticated instrument for the modern musician.
The recognisable tone of the YHR871D is derived from quality craftsmanship and uncompromising materials. The Geyer style wrap has a rim wire that’s thicker than the standard, which produces a deep and resonant tone with a range of overtones. Inside the tubes of all the slides feature gold brass for furthering the horn’s clarity and tonal range. The medium sized bell projects the sound with clarity and a loud voicing. The wire has a leadpipe design, making it completely smooth for a consistent pronunciation.
Yamaha are widely renowned for their exceptional quality control. The YHR871D continues this quality. The yellow brass body and Nickel alloy castings not only have a high quality sound, but are also robust enough to last constant use for years to come. The joints between all components are built to fix with precision, so your horn is always producing the cleanest sound possible. The buttons are fixed with stable hinges that retain their dependability over time, making your performance as expressive as your technique.
Instruments should inspire each performer to play at their best. The YHR871D’s stunning finish displays glistening brass for a long lasting polished look. The embossed Yamaha logo adds a smart, subtle decorative. The shape combines traditional horn design with a modern, updated look that’s ideal for musicians in small and large orchestral bands.
