Yamaha YHR-871 Geyer-Style Custom French Horn
The Yamaha YHR-871 Geyer-Style Custom French Horn is the newest model in our Geyer style Custom French Horn range, the YHR-871 delivers exceptional clarity as well as deep, rich resonance.
Wrap Style and Bell
An orthodox Geyer style wrap is used with a medium size bell and relatively thick rim wire. The tone is rich and deep with a solid core.
A new leadpipe design in gold brass contributes to consistent tone and playing feel throughout the instrument’s range.
This model features a 12.1 millimeter bore size that maximizes its performance potential.
Silde and Valve Casing
The inner tubes of all slides are made of gold brass to emphasize the horn’s tonal clarity and depth. The main tuning slide also has a rounded shape that provides ideal blowing resistance for this class of instrument. The valve casing is made of Nickel silver for enhanced response and durability.
A hollow rotor makes notable contributions to response and tone.
4th Lever and Pinky Hook
The 4th thumb lever and pinky hook can be adjusted for the most comfortable playing position.
Long Pull Ring
The Bb 2nd valve slide features a long pull ring that adds to the instrument’s playing convenience.
Engraved brass valve caps enhance appearance, adding visual sophistication that is on a par with high-end models.
