Yamaha YHR-668NII Full Double Horn - Nickel Silver

This orchestral French horn is designed for players who prefer the strong sound of a large bell instrument. Characterized by deep, warm tone colors, the Yamaha YHR-668NII Full Double Horn features secure note centers and impeccable intonation.


  • Hand-lapped rotary valves and slides - Rotary valves and slides that have been hand-lapped are airtight and have smooth action.
  • Articulated key levers - Articulated key levers have responsive motion.
  • Hammered and annealed bell - Hammering and annealing are processes so important to the instrument's acoustic characteristics that Yamaha employs computer-controlled equipment to ensure consistently superior sound. Hammering enables bells to have a rich, resonant tone that blends beautifully with other instruments. Annealing is a cooling and heating process that makes it easier to control the acoustics of the instrument.
  • Cyclical bore - A cyclical bore is a perfectly cylindrical tubing assembly in combination with a conical leadpipe and bell system. This allows for consistent air flow throughout the horn.
  • Tapered valves - Tapered valves wear for a long time without air leakage.
  • Deep, warm tone colors - Secure note centers
  • Excellent sound in all registers - The combination of the secure high register, strong projection, and quick attack of the Bb horn with the rich, warm timbre of the F horn make the double horn ideal for most playing situations.
