Geyer style horn with medium-large throat for moderate resistance to air flow. Features "dual plane" valve for the smoothest transitions from F to Bb.

The handmade 667VL delivers a rich expressive tone with superb projection and flexibility. Its patented 'dual plane' valve permits a unique tubing configuration for smooth transitions between Bb and F horns. The long leadpipe delivers remarkably accurate intonation, while the hollow valve rotors provide quick, free response.


Hand-hammered and annealed bell

Hammering and annealing are processes so important to the instrument's acoustic characteristics that Yamaha employs computer-controlled equipment to ensure consistently superior sound. Hammering enables bells to have a rich, resonant tone that blends beautifully with other instruments. Annealing is a cooling and heating process that makes it easier to control the acoustics of the instrument.

Patented "Dual Plane" 4th rotor

The patented "Dual Plane" 4th rotor system helps to achieve a more open feel with a smoother airflow.

Hollow, phospher-bronze valve rotors

Hollow valve rotors provide quick, free response while the phosphor bronze material is extremely resistant to corrosion.

Hand-lapped rotary valves and slides

Rotary valves and slides that have been hand-lapped are airtight and have smooth action.

Articulated key levers

Articulated key levers have responsive motion.

Tapered valves

Tapered valves wear for a long time without air leakage.

Long leadpipe

The long leadpipe delivers remarkably accurate and balanced intonation.

Excellent sound in all registers

The combination of the secure high register, strong projection, and quick attack of the Bb horn with the rich, warm timbre of the F horn make the double horn ideal for most playing situations.
