This is a nice Yamaha YAS-23 student level alto saxophone, serial number 131257. This is an early 23 series “Made in Japan” model, with the long wrap-around bottom keyguard. The alto is in good overall condition, and is currently in our shop getting a full adjustment before it ships.


This alto is used but never abused. It shows typical cosmetic lacquer wear on the body and bell, mostly surface scratching. Some minor previous dent repair but nothing traumatic. The original neck has never been pulled down or damaged. Pads have been replaced at some point, with brown plastic resonators. During our regulation, we will replace any aging pads and material to bring the sax up to our standards. It will get cleaned and sanitized thoroughly before we ship.


If you are just starting out and looking for a solid alto to get you on your path, you can't go wrong with the Yamaha 23. It has long been considered one of the best starter saxes, and rightly so. This is an easy playing alto for players of all ages. Ships in a hard case.
