The Yamaha YHR567 double French Horn is part of their intermediate series so is perfect for students who are progressing through the grades, particularly the higher ones from grade 5+ and is also great for advanced players as well.
What is a full double horn?
The double horn was invented to combat the problem of a single horn's limited range of pitches. Before it's invention, a horn player would have to switch between two separate single horns; one pitched in F and the other pitched in Bb. These have now been combined into a double horn with a shared lead pipe and bell section.
This YHR567 full double French Horn has 4 rotary valves with a fixed medium sized bell and a 12mm (0.472") bore creating a rich, strong sound. It comes complete with mouthpiece, hard case, polishing cloth and valve oil.
