    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.

    Also, I forgot to add that I am in Minneapolis if anyone would like to check this horn out in person.
