About Yamaha Custom Horns

Yamaha's Handmade Custom Horns are unparalleled in comfort and sound quality. Hand-lapped rotary valves and slides provide airtight, smooth, flawless action. Articulated rotorlevers and hollow phosphor bronze rotors promise responsive, light action. The hand hammered one-piece annealed bell responds consistently in all ranges.

Included Accessories

  • AC HR32C4 Horn mouthpiece; larger rim diameter and first cup volume than 30C4 for clear tone, flexible response in all registers
  • YAC HRC-HF French horn case
  • YAC HRC-HFD French horn case for detachable bell model (YHR-881D)
  • YAC 1012P Premium rotor oil

YHR-891 Model Options

Yamaha offers a number of variable options for select instruments.
  • YHR-891D - Same as YHR-891; except with detachable bell; unlacquered finish
  • YHR-892D - Same as YHR-891D; except 6th rotary A stop valve


  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Hollow, Phosphor-bronze Rotors: Hollow, phosphor-bronze rotors provide a quick, free response are extremely corrosion resistant.
  • Innovative valve tubing configuration: The combination of the long rotor valve, dual plane valve, and tubing configuration create a unique shape and size for the triple horn.
