Also what woudl the model be for this horn? This may be the last horn inquiry I make for a very long time. So please help me.

Why care? Any yani for $285 is a deal, if all the parts are there and it's not bent or busted...

Carbs, you go ahead and ask away.

The guy is working on a budget and trying to get a decent horn for college. I was right there in his shoes when I was 17 too, and didn't have a resource like SOTW to turn to for help.
That is in large part what we are here for.

I'd rather help out an eager student willing to learn and earnestly in need of assistance and advice, than discuss which shiny finish to go with on the horn du jour type threads.

Not everyone on this board is lucky enough to own the number of horns myself, and many other member on this board, have.

The serial number indicates a manufacture date of 1979 Carbs. As to which model it is for certain, without any photos or other markings to assist, I can't help.

Our own staffer Ed (Hurling Frootmig) has some excellent info on the Yanagisawa models and history on his Woodwind Forum site:


http://woodwindforum.com/plugins/content/content.php?content.4

Don't forget to scroll down to the bottom of the page, as there is a photo gallery of all the models. Make sure you take a look at this before viewing the horn, as you will be able to identify it from this excellent info.

Looking over that serial number list, if I'm reading it correctly, it looks like your Yani candidate might have been made in 1992 instead of 1979.

If that is true, that can only mean even better news.

I'm thinking, 1977 .
