If it's stamped "Japan" on it somewhere then yeah assuming it needs zero work it would be a good start

It looks like a Vito Yamaha and at that price is a steal

Looks reasonable, good horn. One of the touch pearls is missing. Ask if he has repair history and check to see that the stack rods are not loose . Just think about it existing four years in a high school environment.... Sometimes they get oiled and maintained and sometimes they don’t. Budget at least $125 to have COA by your tech. I also see a lot of these types of horns complete with a neck strap and mouthpiece @ $500, just saying. If this deal doesn’t work out I suggest looking locally on Local social media sales. Be patient something always turns up.

Ended up getting the Sax and started a different thread without thinking about it. It plays well for the most part but high F and low C are a bit hard to get out, the key work is a bit clumsy feeling and the pads will likely need replacing somewhat soon. It came with what I can assume is the original mouthpiece(it's Vito branded) and a Protec case. all in all I'm happy that I have a horn I can learn on again, I've been to long without music in my life and when I get more confident in my abilities I'll likely be looking for something a bit more refined.

Here's a link to the other thread I started so you can see the pictures I took if you want.

The horn looks good for the price - as long as you can practice and build your skills, you can fix the minor issues or get a better horn later.
You realise that the little issues usually associated with used horns are related to their lower price.
Congratulations on your purchase - Vitos have a good rep as student horns.

That's the plan, I loved playing in highschool and I feel that I will eventually need to find a group to play with so I can truly grow as a musician.
