Hey,
How does the YTS 52 compare to the 23? Is the 52 much better? Is it a substantial upgrade and is $1000 a good price for the yts 52?

Alto or Tenor?
I had Tenor 52 and it was so much inferior next to my Buescher Aristocrat at twice the cost, I sold it within a week. Altos are better.

It is an upgrade from the 23 although not much price difference when they're new. The 23's are priced pretty high for a student horn. 1,000 is a very fair price for a 52 tenor. For what it's worth, the 52's were still made in Japan. The 475's (same thing really) are made in China and Indonesia now.

Interesting. It is the tenor model that I am looking into. Does anyone know why some yts 52's have small wing like engravings underneath the company name yamaha on the bell and others don't ?
