This is an absolutely pristine Yamaha Custom series soprano sax, model YSS-875, with serial number 006076. This sax dates back a few years but is still in incredible shape. This is a great opportunity to pick up a Yamaha Custom at a low price!
This soprano really is as nice as the pictures show. The original lacquer is 99% intact with only surface scratching here and there, mostly near the bottom of the body tube. There is really no noticeable wear to the touch points, and no dents or dings anywhere. Pads are all still in like-new condition, fitted with brown plastic resonators. This sax does come with both straight (M1) and curved (M1R) detachable necks, giving the player options for feel and response.
Yamaha really hit it out of the park with the Custom series, and this soprano is a fantastic example. It plays with a sweet, easy sound, with a clear tone and fast response. It has a warm colorful texture in its voice, without getting too dark, and stays very open feeling in all registers. A tremendous soprano for the the pro player. It ships in its original case, which shows just cosmetic scuffing and “shelf wear.”
