The 875EX is the go-to professional alto sax for many people, and this one is a particularly good player. It has been played very little since new, and it just got a nice tune up from Matt Stohrer, who is an excellent saxophone repairman.
This horn is in excellent condition. It was well cared-for, looks almost new, and it plays just how you would expect. I had it tuned up pre-sale, and it plays easily throughout all registers, including playing low Bb easily. This has the V1 neck that everyone seems to want. It tunes easily, works with a wide range of mouthpieces, and has a richer tone than the EX’s with the earlier neck designs.
Someone will get a great deal here and save some money over a new 875EX alto. Plus, these horns hold their value well, so you can be sure to be able to get all or most of your money back out of it later, should you want to.
