This is an immaculate condition Yamaha Custom EX YAS-875EX alto sax, serial number 174056. This alto is just a couple years old and in breathtaking shape. It is a fantastic find for the player wanting a like-new Custom at a bargain price.
The original silver plating on this alto shows virtually no finish wear. There are some minor cosmetic scratches on the surface in a few spots, but no real wear to speak of. There are absolutely no dents or previous repairs. The silver has started to tarnish in between the keys, but the sax will get our full pro set up before shipping, and that includes full disassembly and cleaning/polishing, to make sure it is shining like new when you receive it. The original Custom G1 neck is also pristine.
Pads are all still in new shape, fitted with the original brown plastic resonators, and will our fresh pro regulation, it will ship in tip-top playing condition. We will replace any aging material and optimize the spring tensions and key heights throughout. This is a fantastic player which plays with a warm, centered sound and strong focus. The silver plating adds depth and color. I think this is a great classical horn thanks to the colorful tone and superb intonation, but you can equally play jazz too if you like a darker sound. Ships in its original case.
