Great Horn

By Mimi

from Louisville, KY

Comments about Yamaha YHR-667 Geyer Series Fixed Bell Double French Horn:

This is a great horn. I have been played it for about six months and it is a really great horn for either a student or a professional player. The bell is medium sized which makes for efficient air use either in an orchestra or band setting. This horn does have a tendency to play sharp-but this can be remedied by either getting inserts for the slides or adjusting them appropriately.

Terrific Instrument

Comments about Yamaha YHR-667 Geyer Series Fixed Bell Double French Horn:

I recently purchased a 667D for use as a chamber instrument, but it has quickly become my main horn. I still have a 900,000 series 8D that has been my standard in NYC for several years, but my colleagues have been very favorably impressed with my sound on the 667D. I am currently using it in orchestral, pit orchestra, wind quintet, trio, and brass quintet work, though in some circumstances I do still use the 8D. After comparing the fixed bell version with the cut bell, I feel that the cut bell plays better. The mass of the ring seems to stabilize and darken the tone. I get good projection and great intonation, and have had the best success with a C12 mouthpiece and a Holton DC mouthpiece. Altogether an exceptionally agile, even-toned horn. I highly recommend it.

Fabulous!!

By Kyle-3cJdY

from Middle Tennessee

Comments about Yamaha YHR-667 Geyer Series Fixed Bell Double French Horn:

I baught this horn and I'm really happy I did. After playing a Holton 179 for a year and a half, the 667D was a great step-up. My tone, intonation, ability to play loud, and everything this improved very much (says my directors). It is very easy to slur on this instrument. All of my friends who play H179 tried it out and they feel the same way, they really like the way the valves "pop" and how easy it is to play.

My professional experience with YHR667

By Matt-Srp5g

from Pittsburgh, PA USA

Comments about Yamaha YHR-667 Geyer Series Fixed Bell Double French Horn:

The YHR667 is a very fine French Horn. I have played this horn for a short time professionally. I have been playing a YHR668N since 1996 and was surprised at how easy the 667 was to play. Keep in mind this model 667 has a medium size bell. The sound it produces is warm and very stable, but not as powerful as the 668.When this horn is played very loud, it will produce an edge to the sound sooner than a hornwith a larger bell but this is a type of edge that is not abrasive. It's needed to cut through and be heard. (when appropriate) I play in an orchestra pit most of the time and actually preferred the 667 over the 668 because of its agility, dynamic range, and intonation. I plan very soon to purchase this horn again and use it full-time.

a great horn!

By Meg-0utgR

from Roswell, NM

Comments about Yamaha YHR-667 Geyer Series Fixed Bell Double French Horn:

This is by far the best horn I've ever played. I can't say much because I have only been playing for about 1 year (I switched from trumpet). Anyway, I have tested horns out before. I have played Holton, Olds, King, and my Yamaha 667. Out of them all the Yamaha is definitely the best, and I would recommend it for anyone wanting to take a step up in their horn playing.

I recently purchased this horn and love it. Great intonation and all of the notes sort of 'pop' out very cleanly!
