Get Smooth Light Action And Rich Warm Tone With The Yamaha YHR-891 Triple Horn

The handmade 891 triple horns offer a combination of the rich beautiful sound of a full double French horn, coupled with the sure attacks and control of a descant horn; the problems of intonation and response usually associated with triple horns have been completely eliminated.

Yamaha’s patented long rotor and dual plane valves, along with an ingenious tubing configuration, create a unique new shape and size for these horns. And the comfortable balance of their well thought-out designs make these traditionally unwieldy instruments easy to hold and play. The 891 is an F/Bb/high F triple horn and the 892 incorporates an A plus stop valve.


  • 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.
  • Hand-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.
  • Hollow, Phospher-bronze Rotors - Hollow, phosphor-bronze rotors provide a quick, free response are extremely corrosion resistant.
  • Innovative valve tubing configuration - The combination of the long rotor valve, dual plane valve, and tubing configuration create a unique shape and size for the triple horn.
