Description: Saxophone - Martin-Yanagisawa 880 alto for sale
For sale is a Martin stenciled Yanagisawa 880 alto. Horn is in excellent condition both cosmetically and mechanically. There is some "scratching" of the laquer present on the bell and body, but almost no actual wear spots of the lacquer itself. The horn has all the 880 design traits, such as the double armed low C & C# keys, underslung octave key, articulated low B and C# plateau keys, etc. Pads are in great shape, all suspect pads were replaced and the horn should be good to go for quite some time to come....
The only thing of any real difference is the Martin case is distinctly different from any Yanagisawa case I've ever seen, a bit bigger, with quite a bit more room on the inside to put your "stuff" in, and the horn is form fitted in the case in such a way that the case will be very protective. Case is in very good condition.
As with most Yanagisawa's, this horn plays extremely well, it's very responsive, with a nice rich tone, with good intonation, and projects very well. Pics are available. Please feel free to ask any questions you might have.
$1100 incl shipping in the continental USA.
