I have a Yamaha YTS-52. I bought used as a back-up horn and was delightfully surprised at what an outstanding horn it is. It's free blowing, the intonation is extremely good, the tone is nice and the ergonomics are comfortable.
I think my next new horn might be another Yamaha.
BTW, I've had Conn Fireworks, Selmer Modele 26, Selmer Mark VI, Selmer Mark VII, Couf Superba, Grassi Prestige, Mac Sax Classic and the Yamaha since I started playing decades ago. Oh, and I had a cheap, used Pan-American for years as a backup horn.
