Comments about Yamaha YHR-881 Custom Series Descant French Horn:
The valves are excellent, the levers are very comfortable. All slides are perfectly aligned. The Bflat side of the horn works great up to a high C. The High F side makes A on up much easier to play. The muting valve is a nice plus. Great for Haydn, Bach, etc.
