Yamaha is one of the world's leading manufacturers of French horns, and 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. The YHR-302M marching French horn is available with a silver-plated finish (YHR-302MS).

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

Yamaha makes some of the best equipment on the market, and their marching brass is no exception. These instruments have wonderful tone, great projection, good intonation, and an excellent build quality. They are instructor approved and great for any marching situation. Five Stars!
