    Default FS: Yanagisawa A902 Bronze Alto

    It is with reluctance that I post this, but I have acquired a few more baris, so the 902 has to go. This horn is great, but I've just grown accustomed to vintage keywork and this is a fantastic modern horn.

    The good: Pads still have lots of life left on them, no leaks, bronze body, super resonant, springs in great shape, no dents. I just replaced the neck cork a week ago and there are zero playability or intonation issues with this horn. You may prefer to have a tech check it out, but it really doesn't need it.

    The not so good: There is some lacquer missing on the back side of the horn from the left hand thumb rest down to the right thumb hook. I have included plenty of photos for full disclosure. There is also a small spot of lacquer wear on the side of the neck, also pictured.

    $1600 + actual shipping. I will clamp the keys and bubble wrap inside and outside of the case to ensure the horn survives shipping. I am happy to answer any questions about this horn.

    I am having issues with the file uploader at the moment, so I will add photos shortly once I get it working. Thanks for looking!

    I give up on trying to upload photos to the forum, maybe they're too large. Here's a google drive link to photos: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1qX...voJOI5YP0JUEru

    Honestly I'd prefer not to ship overseas, but I'll look into it and let you know. Thanks!

    What an incredible deal!
    Almost exactly a year ago I was looking for exactly this. I am pretty sure someone would be very happy with this instrument! I will run it by a few of my students.

    Had somebody check this out locally, but they were just kicking the tires. Still available.

    Horn arrived today and it's exactly as described, a terrific alto. Test drove it for 20 minutes
    and feels amazing. Many thanks to Jason for a professional, communicative, honest transaction
    and a quick ship.

    Cheers!

    Just to clarify, this horn actually did stay in North America. In a previous post, I mentioned that I preferred not to ship overseas and I apologize for the confusion as Bill's profile lists him as being in the UK, and I think it's best for all involved to avoid the headache of potential damage and customs issues, etc. Thanks to all who showed interested in this horn. I'm really glad Bill is happy with it.
