The YAS-52 is the discontinued predecessor to Yamaha's current YAS-480. The YAS-52 was intended as an intermediate, transitory model for advanced beginners, but has been hailed by teachers and professionals alike as a phenomenal, inexpensive model, for any player. The YAS-52 features yellow brass neck/body/bell, leather pads with wool felt, plastic tone boosters, nickel-plated keys, front F auxiliary keys. The 52 is known to be well constructed and extremely reliable.
This one came to us in good shape, and has recently gone through a full Playing Condition Service from our in house repair shop. Pads are sealing, action is smooth, and sound is clear and powerful. This saxophone comes in a Bam case that has sustained a crack in the outside music pocket, but is otherwise in tact. The original backpack straps and raincoat are included with the case as well.
All of our pre-owned and new instruments come fully inspected by our in-house repair shop. If you have any questions or would like to make an offer, please feel free to contact us directly at the shop through our phone 713-426-3663 or email @ Wes.Hughes@flemingrepair.com
