Model: YHR-661

Type: Full double F / Bb or Bb / F

Bell throat profile:  Medium

Bell diameter: 12 inches

Bore: 12 mm

Lacquer/ Cosmetics: generally good; just a few slight scuffs and scratches are merely cosmetic issues, in no way detracting from the horn’s very fine playing qualities.

Valve compression: very good

Water key: ‘Amado/ Getzen’ on the mouthpipe bend.

Case: original Yamaha hard case.

Further details: this ‘musically excellent’ horn is a fine player with great fluency over the whole range, a concentrated, ringing sound and a very secure high register.

Overall, a great instrument for the player who is looking for a free-blowing and mechanically reliable horn with just a few visual blemishes, at a very reasonable price. Although it plays at a Professional level, it is also listed in the ‘Intermediate’ category because of its ‘sub £1K’ price.
