Yamaha “YTS-475” Tenor Sax
This is a "mint" intermediate model tenor saxophone that plays very well. I cannot find a scratch on it. This model, the “YTS-475” was recently updated to the “YTS-480”. Why you ask? Who knows! I do know that these horns are identical except the model number. Both are made of yellow brass, with gold baked epoxy lacquer, both have stainless steel springs, both have annealed necks, etc., etc., etc. Right down the line, all the same features and specifications. I think they just wanted a reason to change the model number. New, the “YTS-480” has a list price over $3500.00 but one could be found for around $2800.00. So, a used “YTS-475”, that plays like a new horn, for $1800.00 is a great deal. As always, the sax was cleaned and completely regulated which means that it plays as good as a new horn. It comes in its original Yamaha case, which is in excellent condition, plus I have included a metal mouthpiece cap, ligature, a brand new Yamaha 4C mouthpiece and a neck strap. Get some reeds and you are ready to go. Come try this excellent sax.
