Fresh Saxquest Overhaul
Killing vintage YBS 52 low A!  This is a great horn for the professional player looking for a high quality instrument at a great price. This is the most recent horn off the bench of our baritone specialist Derick Tramel. He meticulously when through this horn from top to bottom. The instrument was completely disassembled and cleaned before it received precise key fitting. It now features a complete mechanical overhaul with all new Valentino leather pads, seamless domed metal resonators, new corks, felts and a top notch key regulation. This horn is ready to go and is in perfect playing condition. 
 
 
The pictures tell the story of this baritone the best. Like many of the best playing pro instruments this one shows signs of many performances and previous repair. There has been a history of dent and solder work on the instrument. The upper neck J tube has been repaired as well as some general dent work along the body tube, lower bow and bell flare. The bow cap itself is in great shape and was never pushed in. This saxophone is with the original neck. The neck is in great shape and was never pulled down. The dent and solder was done professionally in our shop and the sax is now back to its true performing condition.
 
The YBS-52 have long been a go to choice for a lot of University departments as well as a more cost effective choice for professionals. These horns have also recently gained a lot of popularity because of the recent phenom Leo P and his subsequent endorsement of the model. The YBS-52 have a slightly brighter sonic character to the way the play. Their great control and focused clarity make them an ideal choice for anyone looking for a horn to cover a wide variety of musical setting. If you are looking for something you could play straight ahead and funk on, but also wouldn't be worried to take on the road with you this is a great option.
