This is a freshly repadded Yamaha YAS-23 student model alto sax, serial number 010405. This alto is fresh out of the Saxquest repair shop, where it was cleaned and restored by Josh Creekmore. It has been fully adjusted and is ready to go for the next budding saxophonist.

 

This is an earlier series 23, with the long wrap-around keyguard, which adds protection for younger players. Made in Japan, this horn is widely considered one of the best beginner horns you can get. This one shows minor cosmetic wear from previous use, such as surface scratching and whatnot, but previous dents in the bell, bottom bow, and neck have been seamlessly repaired, and it comes in perfect playing condition.

 

This is a very effortless and free blowing alto, which is part of what makes it so good for young saxophone players. It takes your air well yet still offers plenty of control to allow you to develop. Because response and intonation is so good, you see these horns used a lot on the marching band field, even for more advanced players, and I've even seen professional players keep one as a backup. A good, all-around alto for a very low price. Ships in its original case, which shows cosmetic wear, but is still in good serviceable condition.
