The gods of the small ads are tempting me with a used yamaha yts-25 at around £400. should i listen the voices in my head???
I will keep you updated. High pitch in 1960?
I mean, really high pitch, not 442.
My voices told me that a saxophone with such a beautiful engraving must be good.
Yes, I’ve bought one alto, the other one was bought by a friend of mine.......they were rather common in the Netherlands (their use by marching bands is documented until the ’70) they are normally 5 Cm shorter than a normal alto or tenor.
Dolnet HP are 457 hz and have no way to identify them
Also I have bought and luckily returned a ’60 made Amati Baritone (they have a very small H by the thumb rest) and a Couesnon tenor
At least it has the beautiful engraving.
