Very nice Yanagisawa pro model A-900u alto saxophone, serial number 00200832. This alto has recently been repadded and is in stellar shape. It will get a fresh cleaning and adjustment from our repair shop before shipping. This is a great opportunity to get a professional level sax at a super low price.

 

This alto has obviously been well cared for over its life. The original lacquer shows nominal wear on the usual touch points but is still in outstanding shape throughout. The only past dent work is found on one side of the bell flare, which was bent at some point and professionally corrected, showing only very minor lacquer loss from the work. It was done so well that it is hard to spot. There is 1 resoldered joint on one foot of the low Eb keyguard, and no other previous repairs. The original neck has never been pulled down.

 

This sax was repadded fairly recently, using firm pads and brown plastic resonators. When it came to us, the action wasn't optimal, so the horn is currently in our shop for a fresh pro setup. We'll even out the spring tensions and key heights, clean and reseat pads as needed, and basically freshen it up so that it comes to you in perfect playing shape.

 

This alto plays with as clean and pure of a sound as you could find. Very strong core, tight focus, and superb intonation make this a fantastic alto for concert band or the classical setting, but it will rip with the right mouthpiece too. Ships in its original hard case.
