The YHR-302M shares many of the same warm tonal colors as our concert models. But more than a traditional French horn, the 302M has been designed to project its rich tonal colors across the marching field; we've added strength to the natural beauty of its sound.

About Yamaha Marching Instruments

Yamaha Marching Instruments are designed for easy-to-play rugged durability. The consistent quality and ability to produce big, exciting sounds have made them a popular feature on football fields and in parades everywhere. Each model is designed to be durable at traditionally vulnerable points and to be well-balanced for maneuverability.

Included Accessories

  • YAC HRC-302M Wood marching French horn case; fits YHR-302M/S
  • YAC HR30C4 Horn mouthpiece; flat rim, thin U shaped cup for good response in orchestral playing.
  • YAC 1000P Valve oil.

YHR-302M Model Options

Yamaha offers a number of variable options for select instruments.
  • YHR-302MS - Same as YHR-302M; except silver-plated


  • Nickel silver inner and outer slides: The use of nickel silver inner and outer slides ensures better fit and less chance of corrosion because nickel-silver is harder and more durable than brass.
  • Honed Valves: The precise fit between valve casings and pistons after honing means no air leakage.
  • Pressure-formed tubing: Perfectly rounded tubing results in less turbulence and a smoother air flow, thus allowing for an excellent scale and reduced resistance.
  • Laser-fused pluzuma welded bell: A high-energy laser fuses the brass together for a virtually seamless bell which allows continuous, even vibrations.
  • Hand-lapped valves and slides: Hand-lapping valves and slides ensures an absolutely perfect fit and seal between the valve pistons and casing or slide parts. Such a perfect fit helps to achieve smooth air flow and smooth action and improve the response and intonation of the instrument.
  • Well balanced: All Yamaha marching instruments are well-balanced so they are easy to hold while marching.
  • Heavy bracing: All Yamaha marching instruments have heavy bracing throughout so they are more durable at vulnerable points and can withstand marching band.
  • Available feature: The YHR-302M marching French horn is available with a silver-plated finish.
