HELP, I Want One!


Here's the find of the month: this is a mint condition, first series Yamaha Custom YTS-875 tenor sax, serial number 291518. This horn looks like it was played once and put away in its case. It is in flat out new condition; you won't find a nicer one ever.


There aren't any flaws to point out on this tenor, it really is in new shape. Pads are still new as well, and we will go through it in our repair shop just to make sure it is sealing properly. Due to the uniqueness of this instrument, we'll keep everything as factory as possible and only replace material that is aging. The factory set up still feels crisp and new as well.


This model was later replaced with the Custom EX, and this tenor plays similarly to that newer model, though I found it to be maybe not as dark as an EX. It plays with great presence and color, with a fantastic response and is very free blowing and resonant. It has a centered and focused sound, but isn't restricting or “tight” feeling. Great blower. It ships complete with original Custom G1 neck, original Custom 4C mouthpiece, and all original accessories (paperwork, polishing cloth, neckstrap, and case strap). The original case is also in pristine shape.
