Student model oboes that play well and well in tune are hard to find. However, the Yamaha 211 has both of these categories covered. We disassembled it, cleaned it and shined up the silver plated keys, reassembled and regulated it. I replaced 6 of the factory felt pads with more durable cork pads. This instrument is in exceptionally good condition as is the original manufactures case. This is a great price for an oboe that is guaranteed to play perfectly.
I just sold one of these flutes this past weekend. It is exactly the same model of flute and I did exactly the same work on it. So, if you see a description that looks the same as this one well, that’s because it is exactly the same. This is a great playing flute for a beginner. The Gemeinhardt name is well known for making quality student model and professional model flutes. I just finished overhauling this silver plated horn. Overhaul? That means that the flute was disassembled, cleaned and polished. Next, I replaced all the pads and corks then completely regulated it. It comes in its original case and a tuning/cleaning rod is included. All of us, in the shop, played this horn. It really plays very well.
This is a great intermediate/professional oboe that is absolutely in mint condition. The body is a resin/wood composite, sometimes referred to as Greenline, that resists cracking which grenadilla wood instruments occasionally do. It has a full Conservatory System which includes a 3rd octave key, F# key tab, left-hand F, F vent key, articulated C#, alternate low C, and low Bb vent key. The keys are nickel silver that have been silver plated. Blue steel needle springs are used for better key tension and quicker response. It is padded with cork pads through the low C which combined with air-tight tone holes provides an ease of response particularly in the low register. It also comes in a sturdy, plush-lined French-style case with case cover and an outside zipper pouch on the case cover, for accessories. Brand new this oboe Lists for over $3200.00! The best sale price that I have seen is $2550.00 so, an instrument in mint condition, like this one, selling for $2000.00 is a tremendous deal.
This is a Bb, student model clarinet which is specifically designed for beginning players. I like these horns because they play well, free blowing, and play well in tune with themselves. This is very important, especially, for a beginning player of any age. So, I just finished doing a complete repad on this clarinet……it was disassembled and cleaned, all pads replaced, I replaced all corks that needed to be replaced, oiled it and there you are. Included with the instrument is a Vandoren M30 mouthpiece which is better than a standard beginners mouthpiece. Plus, the original case is just a tad oversized and has a place in the top/lid to carry music. Handy!
This is a great choice if you are on the hunt for a beginning alto sax for a new student player. Any band director would certainly give the green light on the purchase of this instrument. As always, with all of the instruments I sell, the sax has been completely disassembled, de-greased and washed. I like to remove all the DNA of the previous owner. Next, I reassemble it and change any worn pads as needed. Then I completely adjust it and regulate the key height so it plays as good as it did when it was brand new. Cosmetically it looks almost as good as a new sax. I have included a mouthpiece, ligature, mouthpiece cap and a Neotech neck strap. Compare this to the price a new Yamaha alto sax which is over $2100.00!!!! Call me at 434-973-4299 to make an appointment. Come look at it and give it a try.
This is a classic instrument sought out by many. I recently did a complete repad on this sax and was impressed by its sound. What is involved in a repad? Well, we completely disassemble the horn, remove all the old pads and old corks then we wash everything. I replaced all the pads, corks, adjusted, regulated the whole instrument and voila, it is ready to be used on many gigs. It is all original lacquer, which is worn, but the horn is structurally sound meaning no dents or bends. It also comes in its original case from ’46 so its rough around the edges but still solid and protects the instrument. Come try the horn and see what you think. I bet you’ll be impressed.
This oboe has the basic conservatory fingering system to low Bb and composition body with woodgrain finish. It also has left hand C-D trills and silver plated keys which are a bonus at this level. A sturdy hardshell case is included. Additionally, this oboe is padded with all cork pads. They are tremendously more durable than traditional felt/fishskin pads.
Here we have a exceptionally nice student model flute, the Jupiter “Capital Edition 510”. The body of the instrument is nickel silver that has been silver plated and the lip plate, that’s where you blow into the flute, is gold plated. It comes in its original factory case, which is in great condition, and it comes with a tuning/cleaning rod. That’s all you need. Of course, we disassembled the instrument and completely cleaned it. Next I reassembled it and adjusted it so it plays as good as new. Brand new I’ve seen this model of flute sell for $650.00 to as much as $900.00! So, $525.00 is a very good price for an instrument in this “almost new” condition. Come by the shop and check it out.
If it’s time for a better clarinet than the plastic one that you are playing now then this is your instrument. The Yamaha YCL-450 is Yamaha’s intermediate model clarinet which is made of grenadilla wood. Grenadilla wood is the wood used to make professional model clarinets. What I’m trying to say is, this is a really good instrument. I have had many of these YCL-450’s come through the shop over the years and I really like them. They sound good and they play very well. Here are the particulars of this horn; completely repadded meaning it was disassembled, washed and all pads and corks were changed plus it comes with a Bonade ligature, mouthpiece cap and a Buffet mouthpiece. Any band director would be proud to have you playing this horn in their band. Come give it a try.
This is a super nice sax for any player at any level….beginner, intermediate or professional. I like these saxes and try to keep at least one available at all times but it’s tough to do so. As soon as I get one ready for sale it gets sold. Well, I disassembled this sax, cleaned it thouroughly and completely repadded it. I changed any corks that needed to be changed, then completely adjusted and regulated it. It plays like a new instrument. It comes in its original case which is in great condition. I have also included a Yamaha 4C mouthpiece, ligature and mouthpiece cap plus a neck strap. All you need is to buy some reeds and you’ll be ready to go.
These are very good playing instruments and you can’t say that about many oboes, really. This oboe plays well in tune with itself which is what you want out of any instrument. It is designed for beginning students meaning the body is made of ABS plastic but uncharacteristic of student instruments it has silver plated keys. The key work design is a modified conservatory system with trill keys for: C#-D#, F#-G#, A#-B, B-C# and right hand C-D keys. All this key work is really quite handy for a budding oboist. I disassembled it, cleaned everything, changed a few pads and a few key corks then completely adjusted it and now, it is just waiting to be played. Brand new this oboe sells for over $2600.00 so, $950.00 is a great deal for an instrument that plays like new. Come try out this great horn.
This is a great intermediate model/step-up model flute for an aspiring professional flutist. If you are currently playing on a student model instrument then this “YFL-385” would be a significant improvement. The head joint is solid silver, the body and foot joint are nickel silver that are silver plated. Obviously it is an open hole flute with an in-line G key and the foot joint has a low B key. Beware: some of these models come with only a C foot joint so don’t be fooled. These are all features of a better model instrument. I just finished doing a complete overhaul on this flute meaning, it was disassembled, cleaned, buffed and then all the corks and all the pads were changed. For you this means that it plays as good as when it was brand new. It comes in its original French style, hard shell case with a leather case cover. Come by the shop and give it a try. Call 434-973-4299 for an appointment.
The Keilwerth SX90 Alto Saxophone is made by the German company Julius Keilwerth, imagine that. It has some cool features not found on all saxes like, the three palm keys can be adjusted to fit the contours of anyone’s hands, large or small. The G# key also has a very handy additional mechanism to prevent it from sticking. Because of the design of the bow, the bottom curved part of the horn, the sax has a free blowing sound, a great dynamic range and great low end response. This is definitely a professional model sax. Keilwerth is not attempting to copy the Selmer Mark VI like so many other manufacturers. So, if you are looking to step-up from your student model Yamaha, Bundy or whatever, this is the horn for you. New, this horn sells for $3800.00! So, such a deal……this is truly a great deal. Call me at 434-973-4299 and setup an appointment to come see and tryout this sax.
This is a vey good student model clarinet. It is actually a special edition clarinet made by Jupiter and the “CEC” stands for Capital Edition Clarinet. Probably more than you wanted to know but, there you go! I just finished doing a complete repad on this instrument which means it was disassembled, washed, all new pads were installed then it was completely adjusted and regulated. For you this means that it plays like a brand new clarinet. I have also included a new Selmer Goldentone mouthpiece with it. So, it’s ready to go.
This is an intermediate model flute which is an upgraded model from your student/beginning model flute. The “”YFL-461” is exactly the same as the “YFL-481”, meaning it is solid, sterling silver, as a matter of fact, it is 92.5% pure sterling silver. You get a much better sound with a silver instrument. It has open-hole keys, a low B foot joint with a gizmo key and here is the only difference, it has “offset G keys”instead of “in-line G keys”. Some players prefer “offset G keys”. If you need clarification just call me. These are all features of a good quality flute. It comes in a French style, hard shell case. Way professional! Come try it and see what you think.
This is a student model clarinet that is ready to play which means, I just did a complete repad on it. It was disassembled, cleaned, all new pads were installed and I completely regulated/adjusted it. It needs nothing done to it and it plays like a brand new instrument. Beware of things that you purchase from eBay, Reverb, Craigslist, etc. They rarely play as well as advertized. Come see this clarinet and give it a try or I’ll play it for you.
Here is a true gem that I ran across recently. This sax was made in 2000 and it looks like it just came off the assembly line. I just finished doing a complete repad on this bad boy. What does this mean “a complete repad? You have to say that last line with a Russian accent. A complete repad – 1st – the sax is completely disassembled, 2nd – we remove all the old pads, 3rd – everything is de-greased and then washed, 4th – I level all the tone holes and all of the keys, 5th – I start reassembling it and putting in the pads, changing the neck cork and key corks as needed. Etc., etc., etc. I could go on and on, oh wait a minute I have been, but that’s the main part of a complete repad. Anyway, it comes in its original hard shell case and I have included the original Yamaha Custom mouthpiece with an after market Rovner ligature, mouthpiece cap and the original neck strap that has never been used. It’s still in the original packaging. Come see it, come try it, come buy it.
If you are looking for your first clarinet this “YCL-250” is a great one to start on. Easy to blow, fits in a students hands well (that’s important) and sounds good. It has all its original synthetic pads which will last for a good long time. Another reason I really like these horns is…….. let’s say your student continues to play clarinet into high school and you eventually buy them a more professional instrument, meaning a wooden clarinet, to use in the symphonic band or orchestra or whatever well, hold on to this “YCL-250”. It would be perfect for marching band because it is made of ABS plastic and has synthetic pads which are not affected by cold weather and rain. That kind of weather would be disastrous for a wooden clarinet. Thinking about the future is a wonderful thing, right?
This is exactly like the next one down the page….same model, I did the same work to it. Yamaha makes outstanding flutes and this “YFL-481II” is no exception. It is a fine intermediate model flute that outclasses the student model flute that you are playing now. It is solid, sterling silver, as a matter of fact, it is 92.5% pure sterling silver. You get a much better sound with a silver instrument. It is open-hole with in-line G keys and a low B foot joint with a gizmo key. These are all features of a good quality flute. I just finished completely overhauling this flute and it plays like it is brand new. The case that it comes with offers storage space for a cleaning cloth or other additional gear. Come try this “481” and I think you’ll be surprised how much better a flute can sound.
This is the perfect student model tenor sax for a beginning student. Any band director will approve of your child playing this horn. This horn was completely disassembled and cleaned thoroughly. Next, I changed 12 pads and completely regulated all of the keys which means that it plays like a new horn. Included with this sax is a Selmer C* mouthpiece, ligature, mouthpiece cap and a strap. Hey, the Selmer mouthpiece alone sells for over $180.00. Get some reeds and you’ll be ready to go. Come see it and try it.
This is a great Bb clarinet for you or your child to start playing. I completely regulated this instrument and played it to make sure that it’s ready for you to play. I have included a brand new Selmer Goldentone mouthpiece with this instrument plus a Rovner ligature and mouthpiece cap. The ligature and mouthpiece cap are a nice upgrade from the factory ones. The new model of this clarinet is selling for just under $1000.00 so $425.00 for an instrument that plays perfectly is a super deal. Come look at it.

Included with this instrument is a neck strap, a ligature, mouthpiece cap and a Yamaha 4C mouthpiece. This is the perfect horn for a beginning sax student or even for someone that played in the past and wants to get back into playing again. Call me, 973-4299, make an appointment to come see it and try it out.
This Yamaha CL1 clarinet is the cousin of the YCL250. They’re the same horn with just a different model designation. Anyway, it’s a great instrument for beginning students. It has all synthetic pads which means they tolerate moisture better that regular pads. Of course, we disassembled it, cleaned it and regulated it so it plays like a brand new clarinet. It comes with a Yamaha 4C mouthpiece which has been sterilized.

This is a really good student model saxophone. Keilwerth is a Germany company that has been making saxes for decades. Some years ago I played a Keilwerth horn. So, the alto is in very good condition and needed a minimum of work done to it. A few pads and some adjustment. It was, as we always do, disassembled, cleaned and reassembled. The sax comes with a mouthpiece, ligature, mouthpiece cap and a neck strap. It is in perfect playing condition. All you need to do is buy some reeds, which I do have available. A nice horn that you should see.
The “1400” is a plastic, student model clarinet. This is a perfect instrument for a beginning player regardless of their age. I just finished overhauling this clarinet meaning, it was disassembled, completely washed all the pads and corks were replaced. In other words, it plays like a brand new instrument. Plus, I have put it in a brand new case which can be carried or worn as a backpack. Come give it a try.
This is a student model Yamaha alto sax that has had the main body and neck anodized. Anodizing is an electrolytic passivation process used to increase the thickness of the natural oxide layer on the surface of metal parts. Some sax manufactures do a finish similar to this on their horns and refer to it as a matte finish or a brushed matte finish. All this simply means is that it has a cool look which is noticeably different from a standard lacquered, shiny, sax. However, the keys are still nickel plated as they originally were from the factory. I very much like the contrast between the flatter anodized finish of the body and neck and the glossier nickel plated keys. Now that we are past the aesthetics of the instrument let’s move on to the performance of the horn. I just finished completely repadding this sax. So, it was disassembled, everything washed and cleaned. Next, I replaced all the pads, all of the corks then I completely regulated and adjusted it. It plays like a new horn. I included a brand new Yamaha 4C mouthpiece, ligature, a new mouthpiece cap and a neck strap. Of course, this sax comes in its original case which is in good condition. Come see and try this unique sax.
This is a great playing flute for a beginner. The Gemeinhardt name is well known for making quality student model and professional model flutes. I just finished overhauling this silver plated horn. Overhaul? That means that the flute was disassembled, cleaned and polished. Next, I replaced all the pads and corks then completely regulated it. It comes in its original case and a tuning/cleaning rod is included. All of us, in the shop, played this horn. It really plays very well. This is the same as the one directly below.
This is a professional model saxophone for sure! First, the body has a black, nickel finish and the keys are silver plated which makes for a visually appealing horn. Second, “Stone Series” means that all the spots where you physically touch the instrument are adorned with semi-precious stones. Besides being cosmetically nice the stone accents actually change the way the sax resonates. Third, the body of the horn is triple annealed which also makes the sax more resonate. Plus, there are double arms on the low C, B & Bb keys for greater key cup stability, a larger diameter bell rim for greater sound projection and more. Call me or come see this sax and I can give you all the other details and features of this outstanding instrument. This sax also comes with two necks 1)the black nickel original neck and 2) the silver plated Fat Neck which does have a noticably bigger sound. As always, we disassembled the sax and completely cleaned it, reassembled and adjusted it. It looks great and plays like a brand new horn. Come see it, come try it, come buy it!
Great student model clarinet for any beginner of any age. This “YCL-250″comes with synthetic pads which means that the pads will last longer than regular felt pads. Of course, the clarinet was disassembled and cleaned severely. I reassembled it, adjusted everything and oiled all the keys so, it’s ready to be played. It comes in its original hard shell case and a Yamaha 4C mouthpiece. Come see it, come try it.
This a great student model instrument for anyone just starting to play flute. It’s a Yamaha, which is good, and it’s silver plated, which helps with appearance plus sound quality and I just reppaded it. This all means that it plays like a brand new flute. When doing a repad the flute is completely disassembled and cleaned. It comes in its original case which is in very good condition. Come take a look at it. If you don’t play yet then I’ll play it for you.
Here we have a fine, vintage horn. A Leblanc “LL”, also referred to as a “Double L”. This particular instrument was made in 1967 and at the time it was one of Leblanc’s top of the line clarinets. Back in the day famed clarinetists Buddy De Franco and Pete Fountain played this model of clarinet. In other words, it is a world class horn. So, if you have a student that is ready to move up from their plastic, beginning horn then this could be the “ONE” you seek. I completely overhauled the “LL” and replaced the case. The case has plenty of storage room for reeds, oils, etc., and it can be worn like a backpack. Cool, aye? Have your budding clarinetist come try this great clarinet.
Considered one of the best, if not the best, saxophone ever made, this 1964 Selmer “Mark VI” alto is truly a great sounding/playing horn. I did a little work on it and then played it for the next 30 minutes. It is a joy to play! I own 3 Selmer saxes myself; a 1928 Selmer Soprano, a 1959 Selmer Mark VI alto and a 1963 Selmer Mark VI tenor. My 1959 Mark VI alto is also a tremendous horn otherwise I would keep this 1964 for myself. Ok, all you music majors or potential music majors that play sax should come give this sax a try. Smokin’!
Hey, marching season is coming soon, all you flutists, and you will need a piccolo. This piccolo plays great and is ready for you. It was disassembled, cleaned, reassembled and regulated meaning it is a lean, mean music making machine! Come try it.
The Buffet company has been making beginning, intermediate and professional model clarinets for decades. This E-11 is an intermediate model clarinet. It is a step-up from your beginning model instrument. What does that mean? Well, it means it is not a plastic horn, it is made from grenadilla wood. Wood clarinets have a better sound than plastic clarinets. Plus, the E-11 keys are silver plated not nickel plated like a student horn. Of course, we did a complete repad on this clarinet which means that it will play like a new horn. Included is a Vandoren mouthpiece and a Bonade ligature which are both upgrades from the stock MP and ligature. If you have been playing for more that a year and are looking for a better clarinet, this might just be the horn that you need.
This is the perfect student model tenor sax for a beginning student. Any band director will approve of your child playing this horn. Across the board, this is a very good sax meaning; it plays well in tune, it has a good sound, it is well made, parts are available and will be available for a long time and the horn fits well in a students hands, which is very important. This horn was completely disassembled and cleaned thoroughly. Next, I changed all the pads and completely regulated all of the keys which means that it plays like a new horn. Included with this sax is a mouthpiece, ligature, mouthpiece cap and a NeoTech neck strap. Get some reeds and you’ll be ready to go. Come see it and try it.
Weissman has been around for over 35 years making flutes and piccolos and also selling flutes and piccolos of other brands. This is a great pro-model piccolo that was made around 1988 and it plays really well. The head joint and body are grenadilla wood and the keys are silver. This is a great choice for your first piccolo or a definite upgrade if you are thinking about movin’ on up from your student model pic. Come by the shop to see it and play it.
Move up from your student model clarinet to a tremendous clarinet. The Yamaha YCL-450 is Yamaha’s intermediate model, grenadilla wood clarinet. Grenadilla wood is the wood used to make professional model clarinets. What I’m trying to say is, This is a really good clarinet. I have had many of these YCL-450’s come through the shop. I like them. They sound good and they play very well. Here are the particulars of this horn; completely repadded, ligature, mouthpiece cap and a new mouthpiece. Any band director would be proud to have you playing this horn in their band. Come give it a try.
This alto flute, yes I said alto flute, was made circa 1973. I disassembled it and did a complete repad, which means the body and all the keys were chemically cleaned then all the pads and corks were replaced. It has been completely regulated and adjusted so it plays like a brand new instrument. Frankly, it looks like a new flute. Come check it out.
This is an intermediate model tenor saxophone that plays very well. This model, the “YTS-475” was recently updated to the “YTS-480”. Why you ask? Good question. 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 $2800.00 – $3000.00. So, a used “YTS-475”, that plays like a new horn, for $1600.00 is a great deal. As always, I disassembled the sax, chemically cleaned it, changed a few pads and completely regulated it which means that it plays as good as a new horn. It comes in its original Yamaha case, which is in very good condition, plus I have included a mouthpiece cap, ligature, a brand new Yamaha 4C mouthpiece and a Neotech neck strap. Get some reeds and you are ready to go. Come try this excellent sax.
This flute plays great, sounds great and is mechanically solid. I think that pretty much covers all the bases. It is a silver plated student model instrument. I cleaned it, repadded it and am ready to set it free. I have included a tuning/cleaning rod. The case is the original Yamaha case which is in really good condition. Get ready to pick it up and play.
This is a professional model instrument which some consider to be the “gold standard” of clarinets. This particular R-13 was made in 1974 which was a very good year. Why? These clarinets are all made of grenadilla wood. In my opinion, newer clarinets of this caliber do not let the grenadilla wood season, or dry out, enough before thay use it to make an instrument. This is a problem because the wood has a tendancy to split, mainly in the upper joint. However, the grenadilla wood that this horn was made from was well seasoned. Plus, after 43 years of being played, if the wood hasn’t split yet……it isn’t going to split. On top of that the wood has been taken care of quite nicely. The clarinet was just recently repadded with Valentino synthetic pads, which are very durable, and it plays great. If it’s time for you to move up from your student model clarinet then this could be your new instrument. Of course it does come in its original case and with the original Buffet mouthpiece.
This is tremendous professional model tenor saxophone. This “YTS-62” was made around 2003 and is in great cosmetic condition plus, I just finished doing a complete repad on it. What does “a complete repad” mean? Well, the horn is disassembled and we remove all the old pads and key corks, neck cork, everything. All pieces of the instrument are cleaned, inside and out. I reassemble it and install all new pads and corks. Next, I completely regulate and adjust it so it plays as good as when it was brand new. Of course it comes in its original hard shell case, which is in great condition. I also include a NeoTec neck strap and a new Yamaha 4C mouthpiece, ligature and mouthpiece cap. All you need to do is buy some reeds and you’re ready to go.
This is a 1968 Selmer Mark VI Tenor! Nothing else is quite like a Mark VI. The serial number is #M158***. It is all original lacquer. Considering that it is a 43 year old horn, the lacquer is in great shape. I just repadded it on 6/1/11 using Roo pads with original style Selmer resonators. I like the way this horn plays! I’ve consistently seen horns of this era sell for $7000.00 or more. This Mark VI comes in its original hard shell case with keys for the case latch locks. Come by the shop and try this saxophone. It was priced at $6595.00. Now it is on sale for $5400.00!
If you are looking to move up from an intermediate model horn to a clarinet that will be with you for the rest of your playing career then your search is over. The Buffet R-13 is a great professional model clarinet that has been used all over the world for years. This R-13 was made in early 1995 and is in excellent condition. The grenadilla wood body is perfect meaning it has no cracks and the keys are all German silver. I have completely repadded, disassembled and cleaned it within an inch of its life. Of course, it comes in its original hard shell case. The clarinet has a beautiful sound and plays freely. I know that’s what I want from an instrument of this caliber. Come see it, come play it and come buy it. You will be impressed with the quality and sonority of this instrument.
This is a student model flute that is in great condition. I cleaned it up and did some very minor regulation and adjustment. It comes in its original case and it also comes with a case cover which is out of the ordinary for most student model flutes. This YFL-221 is a perfect choice for any beginning student. Come see it and try it.
The Gemeinhardt 3SHB intermediate flute offers the resonance and tone quality of a solid sterling silver headjoint combined with the French key mechanism (open hole keys). This is the flute you want if your student is moving up from a beginning instrument and into an intermediate instrument. I completely repadded this flute so it plays like a new horn. Part of the repadding process is the flute is completely disassembled and cleaned. All pads and corks are replaced and it is completely regulated and adjusted. Brand new this flute lists for $1500.00 and is commonly sold for around $1100.00. So, $850.00 for a newly repadded flute of this caliber is a great deal. Come try it out and see what you think.
This Bundy bass clarinet is in perfect playing condition and ready to go. I disassembled it, cleaned everything within an inch of its life, replaced all the corks and then replaced all the pads. This is what we call an overhaul. I used all white leather pads on this repad. They are more durable and longer lasting than the conventional bladder pads. So, it has been washed, oiled, adjusted and regulated. Of course, it comes in its original hard shell case, which is in very good condition, and I’ve included a Yamaha 4C mouthpiece, ligature and mouthpiece cap. Just buy your favorite reeds and start playing.
Keilwerth is a great company that has been making saxes since the 1920’s. I used to play a Keilwerth sax myself in the 90’s. This particular sax is a student/intermediate model. I just finished doing some work on it….a couple of pads, a little adjustment here, oiled the keys….basically a tuneup. Next, I played it with a tuner in front of me and I’ll tell you, this horn plays well in tune with itself. You can’t say that about all saxes. So, it plays well and cosmetically it’s in great shape plus the original hard shell case is solid as a rock. Included with the sax is a Yamaha 5C mouthpiece, ligature, mouthpiece cap and a neck strap. Buy some reeds and you’ll be ready to go.
If you are looking for a super baritone sax then you have found it. The “YBS-52” is sought after by players and band directors for its sound quality, durability and outstanding intonation. I played a “YBS-52” for 12 years while I was touring with Big Ray & the Kool Kats. And considering it is a bari sax, which is huge and normally takes a lot of lung power to play, it is amazingly free blowing. So, it’s ready to play right now. I have included a Yamaha 5C mouthpiece, mouthpiece cap & ligature and a Neotech Soft Harness. On top of that the horn comes in a ProTec case which is tremendously lighter than the original hard shell case. Just to give you a reference point on pricing for these horns; List price is $8306.00. Sale price at most Big Box stores is $5471.00. So, $3850.00 is a great price for a sax that plays like new. Come try it out.

This is a professional model flute that is considered Semi Handmade and I just finished completely repadding it. The headjoint, lip plate, body & footjoint are 92.5 % pure sterling silver which provides a rich, warm well-defined tone. The keys are made of nickel silver and then they are silver-plated. All of the key springs are made of white gold for a light touch and optimum response. Of course, it has a traditional open-hole configuration and key design, referencing the pointed arms on the key cups. The low B on the footjoint has a gizmo key which provides an easy and accurate fingering to facilitate high C. Consequently, this is one of the best flutes that I’ve had in my shop. You have to play this flute to truly appreciate it.
