Sounds good but...

Comments about Yamaha YBS-52 Intermediate Baritone Saxophone:

Don't get me wrong, this is a good saxophone. However, some of the parts weren't made very well. Different things cracked on it, and it wasn't beaten. The repairs were rather expensive compared to other saxes I have had repaired. The low B, Bb, and A keys definitely need more bracing because they bend REALLY easy. The sound was really good, though. I would probably go with a different one if it were for marching.

Great Instrument

Comments about Yamaha YBS-52 Intermediate Baritone Saxophone:

Purchased from WWBW about 9 years ago. I started saxophone 15 years ago and now play mainly bari and tenor in local swing bands. The instrument is easy to blow over the entire range with even tone and excellent pitch. Projects well. Finish holds up well. Because the instrument plays so well in-tune, I have been able to concentrate on other areas of musicianship. My instrument came with the Yamaha 5C mouthpiece, which was a little soft for the groups I play in, but still produces a nice warm sound suitable for concert band, orchestra, and chamber music. I would have to agree with some other reviews I have seen, don't use this in a marching band, especially if you own the instrument -- it is too fine an instrument for that type of abuse. If you take care if it, it will play well and keep its beautiful appearance. So far, I have only had to replace a couple cork key stops I knocked off from careless cleaning.

Comments about Yamaha YBS-52 Intermediate Baritone Saxophone:

Have been plying one of these for about 4 years now. Great sax that produces full sound from the high F# to the low A. Works great with any mouthpiece and reed and is also good for any style of music.

This Sax lets low notes come out very easily, and it sounds wonderful. Little repairs, case is wonderful and it is perfect from jazz to classical!

Comments about Yamaha YBS-52 Intermediate Baritone Saxophone:

I just tested this horn against the silver Jupiter Bari and the Yamaha came out the clear winner in all categories but looks. This will be my new Bari going forward. My tenor is a Mark VI, so I am very spoiled!
