Hey all,

Most folks know what the Yamaha model numbers stand for (anything starting with a 2 is a student horn ex. 21, 23 and 275. Horns with a 4 ex. 475 are intermediate. Horns with a 6 are pro ex. 61 and 62 and horns with an 8 are custom pro horns ex. 82z or 875ex).

Does anyone know what the Amati model numbers determine.

I picked up a Amati Kraslice ATS-61 (that rocks BTW). I've seen on the forum Amati models like 83p and a few others I can't recall.

Can anyone tell me what these numbers mean?

Thanks

Re: Amati model numbers and there distinction.

Pretty much the same as Yamaha's - the higher the number, the more expensive the instrument.

I don't know the year, but if it says "Czechoslovakia" on it, it was made prior to 1993...

Thank you for that link ! It is the first Amati serial list ever to appear online.

I would like to applaud whomever came up with it. It's a great endeavor.
