For sale early four digits (008xxx) Yamaha YTS-62 (Purple logo) professional tenor saxophone. Saxophone is in excellent shape, very minty and great looking (take a look at the pictures). It was overhauled recently with Pisoni Pro pads and it plays smoothly from top to bottom with quiet and tight action, gig ready and no need for any additional investments. The horn comes with the original case and without mouthpiece. It is free-blowing horn with modern sound (surprisingly, it plays darker than my YTS-61) and excellent intonation and ergonomics. I prefer to sell it inside EU (no customs for EU countries), but would consider worldwide shipping also (this could be quite heavy package). The horn is available for local pickup/cash in Zagreb (HR). Payment by bank transfer or PayPal (buyer pays fees). Ask for the price. Pictures
For sale Ted Klum Focustone Precision 7* (.105), tenor saxophone mouthpiece, little used, clean bite plate, almost mint condition, This mouthpiece plays great on darker side with some edge on top. Some payers prefer Precision model over Handcrafted model. Comes without ligature & cap.
The FocusTone Precision Model is CNC machined in one piece from high quality extruded bar stock brass to the medium large chamber dimensions of our popular Handcrafted Model.
The Precision Model is the modern day evolution of the classic medium large chamber tenor saxophone design. Inspired by a generation of musicians whose sound could fill the room, it features a large, robust sound with plenty of presence.
For sale early four digits Yamaha YTS-61 (Purple logo) tenor saxophone, made in late sixties/early seventies (No. 17xx). It still has Selmer Balanced Action style octave key without Yamaha logo. Saxophone is in excellent shape, a few barely noticeable dings and minor lacquer loss (take a look at the pictures), overhauled recently and it plays smoothly from top to bottom with quiet and tight action, gig ready. It comes with the original case and mouthpiece. It has punchy, focused sound on the brighter side and excellent intonation. Excellent for Rock ‘n’ Roll, Funk and contemporary styles. This is first generation of Yamaha professional saxophones.
I prefer to sell it inside EU (no customs for EU countries), but would consider worldwide shipping also (this could be quite heavy package). The horn is available for local pickup/cash in Zagreb (HR). Payment by bank transfer or PayPal (buyer pays fees). Ask for the price. Pictures
