This is a very nice step up Yamaha tenor sax. YTS-52 in gold lacquer serial number, 003037. The YTS – 52 has long been a go to horn for tenor players looking to step up from their student instrument. They are also popular among the pro players for being a great modern horn you can get into for not a lot of money.
The tenor is in very nice condition showing some light cosmetic play wear. The gold lacquer has a nice shine and has been well kept by the previous owner. Its body tube and bell are both in nice shape and have no history of major repair. There is a few smaller size dings on the bottom bow we are currently taking out in the shop. This tenor also includes the original neck in good condition.
The YTS 52 show cases a highly comfortable modern key layout and is keyed up to high F#. These horns play with a strongly centered core sound allowing an exceptional level of control and versatility from top to bottom. Saxquest is currently in the process of giving this sax a professional set-up and regulation. It ships in perfect playing condition along with the original wood Yamaha hard case.
