    Default Yamaha yss61 soprano sax fs

    This horn BLOWS GREAT...very free blowing...nost of the purple label is worn off and a little lacquer wear...95% there...pads are real good...original case is fine just a few rough spots on the outside...This one blows better than most 62's I've played...$1795...ships from bethlehem,pa.usa...

    Jeez. I want this, a ton. Definitely can't afford a new horn at the moment but if you still have it in a few months when gig season picks back up I will be in touch.

    This one could have been mine years ago, Pete. Did you get it from Florida?

    The plastic thumb hook got me going for a google search. I wonder if there was a year that that started doing metal or if it was some metal some plastic here and there. There's so little info on these horns.

    My YTS 61 is a beast. If I were to buy a sop it would for sure be this one.

    GLWTS!

    Just a quick google images search turns up a good mix of metal and plastic thumb rest results.

    Mine is metal. I guess if they are metal they are after market.

    Are the pads original? Just wondering how much life is left in them...

    Pads are definitly not original and are all very good and should last for years...

    most of the pads look fairly new...A couple small ones a tad darker but still look closer to new...

    I am very particular about sopranos and this is the 3rd 61 I have owned and I've owned many 62's and a couple 62r's and 1 62RS...This 61 is among the best of all of them...If it doesn't sell it's OK but someone who loves to play soprano will love this one!

    I totally agree with you, Pete. I've owned a YSS61 since 1978. I've tried others, but I keep this one.

    This was Yellowhorn's soprano a while back and has since been overhauled...reduced to $1695 and you won't find any soprano that plays this good for this price...no trades...
