HELP, I Want One!

Very nice Yamaha YBS-52 baritone sax with keywork to low A, serial number 017502. The 52 was Yamaha's intermediate level bari for a long time until the recent introduction of the 480, but don't like that moniker fool you. We sold a lot of these 52's to professional musicians over the years, as they are a solid horn for the price, and hold their own with some of the best horns out there.


This horn has been well maintained and well cared for, and is in fantastic shape. It shows minor typical lacquer wear from use, mostly just light scratching and whatnot, and some very shallow cosmetic dings in the bottom bow and and bell, nothing that would affect play. Pads are all in like-new condition and sealing well. The sax will get a fresh cleaning and adjustment from our repair shop before shipping, where we'll make sure the keywork is tight and the action in proper regulation.


This is a big, beefy player from bell notes all the way up into the altissimo. It takes your air very efficiently and responds quickly to changes in your air or voicing. Sound projection is outstanding: it fills up a room without max effort, and cuts well. Great all-around horn for advancing students and professionals alike, this is a great horn for everything from pit gigs to concert bands to wailing on stage at a rock show. As a bonus, it comes in a premium BAM Hightech case, as pictured.
