This is a cool old Yamaha-produced Vito alto sax, serial number 033790. This alto was made by Yamaha and is most similar to the early YAS-23 series saxes, with a similar long wrap-around keyguard on the bell keys. It has just been restored in the Saxquest repair shop and ships with all new pads.

 

This alto looks fine, with only mild lacquer wear to the original lacquer. The scratching and lacquer loss is just cosmetic and does not affect play. During the repad, we took a couple minor dings out, and the sax is now dent free. It was repadded with good quality leather pads and brown plastic resonators, and all keys and mechanisms were oiled and adjusted, for a quiet, fluid feel under your fingers. All work was performed in our shop by Hunter Murray.

 

This is a great alto for beginners, or as a solid back-up for marching band or outside use. It plays well with a quick response, overall warm sound, and is easy blowing for players of all ages. It ships in a hard case, ready to go for its next owner.
