£2,750.00

SOLD

Maker:  YAMAHA

Model:  YHR 667

Type:  F/Bb or Bb/F full double

Bell throat profile: Medium

Alloy: lacquered yellow brass, gold brass leadpipe

Bell flare: fixed

Water key: conventional type, on the leadpipe

Weight: 2.49 kg

Visual/cosmetic condition: excellent, apart from small area of lacquer loss inside the bell flare about 1 centimetre in diameter.

Valve compression: excellent

Case: original Yamaha hard case.

Further details: this model is well-known as an ‘easy blower’ requiring less effort than many other double horns. Although a professional-quality horn, its very reasonable price accounts for its parallel listing in the 'Intermediate' category.

 Generally, an excellent player with an even response over the entire range. 

'Stop press’… I recently found out that Yamaha has now discontinued the 667 after 30+ years. So, I predict that this model will soon become a rare and highly-sought-after ‘iconic horn’!
