HELP, I Want One!

Here is a very nice Yamaha YBS-52 bari sax for a great price, serial number 010331. This horn shows little lacquer wear and only minor dings and dimples that come to many gigging bari saxes. Considered an intermediate model by Yamaha, this is a fantastic, affordable option to players who may not be main bari players, but need a solid, dependable bari for those occasional gigs.


As you can see in the photos, this bari sax has some minor dents, but no serious past trauma. We are going to remove those dings we can get to, but will not be able to take everything out. For instance, those in the upper crook can only be removed by unsoldering and removing that whole assembly, which would lead to unnecessary lacquer loss. Still, we will straight what we can, and completely regulate the instrument throughout. It will ship out with a few tiny dings still, but in perfect playing condition.


Pads are still in outstanding shape, with brown plastic resonators, and we will replace anything which is starting to wear. We will also replace all of the cork and felt work, and back up our maintenance with a full year mechanical warranty.


This is a full sounding bari. Its powerful bottom end projects great, yet it can still whisper to low A with ease. It has an overall even tone up and down the full range of the instrument. A great sax for an unbeatable price, this horn does ship out in its original hard case.
