Freshly Repadded & Ready to Go!

This is a freshly repadded “Made in Japan” Yamaha YAS-23 alto sax, serial number 141509A (A for American market). This sax was just restored in the Saxquest repair shop by master technician Derick Tramel, and ships in perfect playing shape.


This Yamaha 23 shows only cosmetic wear from nominal use. It has surface scratching to the original lacquer, mostly on the back side of the horn, and there are no major past dents or repairs. It appears there were a couple minor dings in the bell flare at one point, but I see no evidence of any past trauma. The original neck too is in excellent shape with no past dents. This sax was just repadded using good leather pads and brown plastic resonators. All corks and materials have been replaced, and the sax has been cleaned and sanitized.


The 23 is well regarded as one of the best student model horns you can get. This alto plays with a clean and easy response, very comfortable to get a clear tone. Freshly adjusted as it is, a young saxophonist won't be held back by an instrument in poor condition. This sax is ready to go, and ships in its original hard case.
