Did you ever pass on a deal and later kicked yourself for doing it? I passed on a nice 1978 Vito/Yani Soprano about 4 yrs ago . . . because I didn't want to part with $500 plus tax. Later . . . and too late . . . I came to my senses but the sax was no longer available.

Went into a pawn shop a few days ago . . . and found my long lost deal! Walked out with the sax (same one!) this time . . . $400 out the door!!

Ah, sweet success!! But I still shoulda bought it the first time . . .

BTW, this is one of those classic Yani "what model IS this thing anyway?" saxes. 1978 was the transition year between the S6 and the S800 . . . but then Yani in that era never let anything like models and specifications get in the way of building saxes. It has the metal thumbrest like the S6, the strap ring like the S800, and no adjusting screw on the lower stack arm like the S6. Typical Yani of that period . . . they kind of glissando'd into a new model.

I use a Super Session H with a little shaved wooden thingy on it. It was a good fit for my Buescher TT, but I will probably break out the box of extra sop mpcs to see if I like something better on this one. The shaved wooden thingy is currently the same as yours, but I'm playin' so little these days I play what I've got as long as it doesn't make my eyeballs pop out tryin' to make a sound.
