Yanagisawa 880 Professional Model Alto Saxophone #151,xxx - Great condition!!

The Yanagisawa 880 Alto has ribbed construction, double connected left hand table keys and a double armed low C and B keys.  Finish is lacquered brass, hand engraved with range from Low Bb to High F#.  Antonio Hart is an artist/endorser for Yanagisawa saxophones (http://www.antoniohart.com/)

This one is in very good condition with good pads.  The owner is primarily a tenor player who didn't use this alto that much, thus the great condition. The 880 model was a previous, top end, pro model, followed later by the 990, 991 and now the AW010.  The 880 has a warmer sound quality than some of the later models, possibly because the metal is slightly thicker.  I have always been a big fan of this model because of that!

Yanagisawa saxophones are very high quality with outstanding overall response and intonation.  Yanagisawa has been making musical instruments for well over 100 years so they are not new to the process of building a quality saxophone.  Sound quality is somewhat brighter than other brands, but very good and usable especially in playing situations where you need more presence and some edge to your sound.  Every bit as good as a Selmer or Yamaha at a lower price!
