The YHR-302MS 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.
Key of Bb
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.
The precise fit between valve casings and pistons after honing means no air leakage.
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.
All Yamaha marching instruments are well-balanced so they are easy to hold while marching.
All Yamaha marching instruments have heavy bracing throughout so they are more durable at vulnerable points and can withstand marching band.
