Yamaha Double French Horn (Best Offer) - $4500 (Cypress)

Yamaha professional horns feature hand-lapped rotary valves and slides for an airtight, smooth action. Quick responsive motion is provided by the articulated key levers. The hammered and annealed bell responds consistently in all ranges and the cyclical bore design produces consistent airflow throughout the horn. A well-placed water key proves efficient water drainage. Yamaha professional horns are known for accurate intonation and comfortable, quick response. This horn is a Kruspe style horn with large throat for full sound with little resistance. Great for the professional player. 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 Strong sound Deep, warm tone colors Secure note centers Impeccable intonation 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 Options Available in clear lacquer: YHR668II with detachable bell: YHR668DII or nickel-silver: YHR668NII with detachable bell: YHR668NDII Specifications Key: F/Bb Kruspe style wrap: A horn with a Kruspe style wrap has the 4th valve on the near end of the other valve. The Kruspe wrap is the basis of modern large bell horns Bore: .472" Bell: 12-1/8" yellow brass bell produces a slightly bright and intense sound Bell throat: Large Valves: Four solid rotary valves Water key: The water key on a horn expedites water drainage Clear epoxy lacquer: Microscopic, electrically-charged particles of lacquer are attracted to and deposited evenly on the surface of the instrument carrying the opposite charge. This produces an exceptionally thin, uniform coating that can be oven-hardened for maximum durability without compromising the instrument's sound. The sound produced is a solid, somewhat harder sound than silver-plated finishes Gold brass leadpipe: Extremely resistant to wear and corrosion do NOT contact me with unsolicited services or offers post id: 5968020823 posted: 14 days ago email to friend ♥ best of [?] Avoid scams, deal locally Beware wiring (e.g. Western Union), cashier checks, money orders, shipping.
