(Special Consignment -- Plays Great) Another superb tenor, ser#017xxx, Original Lacquer at 85%. They are clean sounding, comfortable playing tenors, with great intonation. In the Yamaha pro lines, people seek out these Purple Logo ones (pickiness says: they play better). It received mostly newer pads elsewhere; it feels wrong to tear them out. this sax impressed me on arrival. (I'm not a big fan of "the Yamaha tone".) This sax has a bit more depth and body than what most people know of for Yamaha--I give credit to the "purple logo"; this must be the reason that these are in demand.
I have priced it low for only one reason: a past owner had a small custom area. (see Photo: Side Bb, C, E) The brass was trimmed in the spacing. Otherwise, I would have priced this sax easily at $2700.00+. CASE: comes with original hard case in good shape.
