About This Listing

Though the Japan Vito Stenciled Yamaha YAS-23 Alto saxophones were produced years ago, yet once critically refurbished/rebuilt, there's not much out there that can beat them or even compare. No matter the cosmetics, we usually have to clean, rebuild, replace the pads, replace components, then replace/reset everything else that matters, and your good for many more years.

Invest in a saxophone where the player is not wasting their skills...and time. This Vito (Yamaha YAS-23) has our complete $395 refurbish package w/all new pads, corks/spacers as needed, keyholes evened to plane, case, fully refurbished neck, heavy mass neck screw, new cork grease, sterilized minty Yamaha 4c mouthpiece W/lig/cap, new neck-strap, plus anything shown in photos...A very beautiful saxophone and ready to play.

Our Rebuilding Order: 1. Saxophone was completely dismantled, checking (resealing if necessary) the seal at the bell joint, then an internally cleansing of bacterial elements 2. All keyholes/keys checked for alignment/roughness and smoothed/corrected/leveled as needed, 3. All pads as needed replaced and set & sealed air tight at a professional level. 4. All springs and rods checked/adjusted for a fluid play and replaced or corrected as needed. 5. All cork spacers, supports, and bumpers checked and replaced as needed. 6. All multi-play/key settings/controls adjusted and set for correct coordinated key closings. 7. Either upgrade neck to an advanced Yamaha neck or replace neck cork tenon along with the 2 octave pads. Step 8 Begins the testing/settings/sealing process, and it is a multi-step/multi-day process across usually 5-8 days. All sensitive settings that affect the play, we try to semi-lock in, not only to correct present problems, but future problems.

  We do offer saxophone rebuilding as described to any interested player who uses a Yamaha saxophone. For the baritone sax and bass clarinet, the work has to be estimated. The Reverb only price will be $395 for Alto and Soprano, and $425 for Tenor...not including any shipping charges or custom features. If parts need to be ordered, there could be extra time and cost involved...but we do stock almost all Yamaha parts.
