Yamaha YHR-862 Custom Double Horn – Serial #: 001425


The YHR-862 had a decade long production run from 1982 to 1992.  Now discontinued, these horns are highly sought-after.  A truly custom horn, the YHR-862  covers a wide range of versatility.  This horn has excellent compression and is very responsive, particularly in the high range.  The nickel silver allows for brilliance in the tone.

Compression Ratings

Open Valve 1 Valve 2 Valve 3
F 0 0 0 0
Bb .5 0 0 0

The compression ratings measure how well an instrument’s valves prevent air from leaking. Instruments with leaky valves may feel “loose”, may have trouble centering, and may take more energy to play. All compression ratings are on a scale from 0 (best) to 8 (worst). In general we recommend that valves with a rating of 5 or more have a valve rebuild.
