Yamaha YAS-61 Professional Alto Saxophone with high F# made in Japan! This model was produced in the late 1970s and 80s by Yamaha in Japan. These early Yamaha saxophones were made with incredible quality!
His sax has the famous Yamaha Purple Logo known to adorn some of the best Yamaha saxophones ever made. The lacquer is in good shape overall. There are various areas with surface scratches and wear to the lacquer finish. The octave guide post on the neck shows to have been pushed in slightly at some point, this does not affect playability and the neck octave is fully functional. The Yamaha purple logo is in good shape and shows nice and clear on the bell as well.
Please see the photos for condition! The pads are an older set but are still in good condition.
This saxophone has not been played in about 15 years, I would recommend the saxophone receive a full adjustment before active playing. Includes original Yamaha hard-shell tri-pack case. This case has compartments for the sax, clarinet, and flute! This style of case from Yamaha is quite rare, I have not seen this style of case available from Yamaha in many years. These Yamaha 61 altos are great saxophones, the new owner is going to have a fantastic quality sax!The item "Yamaha YAS-61 Alto Saxophone ORIGINAL CASE!
