    Default FS: Dorado 500 (Yanagisawa A-4) alto Saxophone

    For Sale:
    1 Dorado 500 Yanagisawa A-4 alto. This one is another one of my time caspule finds. The lacquer is at least 95 percent, no dents, no re-solders.1 small ding on the neck. According to serial number charts, this one was made in 1971, some 40 years ago. The pads are original, but the horn plays great, but let's face it, the pads are junk, but the action of the horn is beautiful!! Again, this is the cleanest dorado 500 I have ever seen. It comes in its original case, which is also in beautiful condition and a brilhart ebolin mouthpiece with cap and ligature, but no strap. The price is $450. shipped to the US. I accept paypal or postal money orders. It ships from Sacramento Ca. PM for pics and details, Thanks.

    Does it have the good left pinkie table design or the "un-balanced" Buffet style? It seems they came in both at that time.

    The table is oval, so I would call it a more Buffet style

    I guess I didn't explain it well. Is it MarkVI style or the other style with the linkage on the bell.

    The bell keys are mounted on the bell with linkage coming from the plateau table. The plateau is not linked like the Martin stencils. They only were linked with the 800 series and later. The A-4 was not, neither was the A-5 or A-6. Its a great builder either way.

    I guess I thought it would be like the tenor;
