It was the replacement for the YTS32/52 horns and they've been about for roughly 20 years now. Every inch of these horns is Yamaha Japan, and they play superbly.
This one plays perfectly and effortlessly from top to bottom and needs nothing other than a mouthpiece... The Berg pictured is NOT for sale and comes in a Yamaha hard case. Conditionwise, it's almost 100% typical Yamaha bulletproof laquer with some light scratches as you would expect from a 15-20 year old horn, and there are a couple of blemishes which are difficult to picture, but they're there...... That is, a small ding just below the thumb rest on the back of the horn, and a small ding above the Yamaha logo on the side of the bell.Neither of which affect the horn in any way other than aesthetically. I was going to get these removed when the horn was in being regulated, but they really aren't an issue to me. However, they may be to you, and if you go down this route with your own tech, I'm reliably informed it's probably in the region of 15 minutes work. I have reflected this in the price.
I've owned a YTS61, a YTS62 and this YTS475. I can't tell the difference in sound between the 3, and the ergo's aren't that much different either.
