Yamaha YBS-61 Baritone Saxophone Serial #7914


Pro Line Baritone Saxophone with Low A!



This Yamaha YBS-61 baritone saxophone is in good condition! It has 75-80% of its lacquered finish remaining. A majority of the finish wear is on the leg side of the horn.  The bottom thumb rest has been replaced.  The key guard above the bottom thumb rest is off and not included. There are multiple points where there are visible re-solders, most notably at the bell to body brace. The U tube brace needs a re-solder at the three points in the U tube. The portion of the brace that is connected to the body is still solid. One of the plastic resonators has a small chip in it, this does not affect the playability of the saxophone. The lyre mount is off and not included. The bottom foot on the bottom bow key guard has an edge lifted up and looks like it was possibly glued at one point and has a replacement screw. There are some light dents along the bottom bow and a couple of very minor dings in the U tube as well. The bell has some very minor dings and the bell lip shows some evidence of bell lip pull down removal.  The lip is still pulled down slightly.  Please see pictures for details. The serial number is “7914”. The engraving above the serial number reads “Yamaha YBS-61”. It comes with the original neck in good condition. It has some tape residue and a minor dent in one side.  There is evidence of pull down removal in the neck that is better felt than seen.  You can just barely feel that there is just the slightest bit of pull-down left in the neck. It has a new ProTec case. No mouthpiece is included. This is a great playing low A baritone saxophone! It just came back from the shop where it was regulated so it really packs a punch.
