Yamaha 481H and Sankyo headjoint for sale

Post by accidental_poet » Mon Jun 23, 2003 3:49 pm

Hi! I am selling a Yamaha
481-H and a Prima Sankyo NRS-1 headjoint. The Yamaha comes with a solid silver
head, body, and foot, with an undercut and beveled embouchure hole. It is
equipped with double bladder pads, which are far less likely to tear or lose
their seating on the tone holes, and an extra durable post design which prevents
gradual loosening of the screws. This model is perfect for any serious middle
school, high school, or college student. Even new, it is by far the best value
in its price range, and is my first recommendation for all of my intermediate
students. It hasn''t had any work done in a while, but is in perfect playing
condition. It has a small, barely noticeable (and removable) ding, but looks
beautiful other than that -- no tarnish, etc. It comes with the original case
and tuning rod, two plugs, and a leather case cover with a padded blue velvet
interior by Powell. It lists for around $2400; I''m asking $1400, but please
feel free to make an offer. The Prima Sankyo NRS-1 headjoint is solid silver
headjoint with a handcut embouchure hole and a slightly waved lipplate which
allows for an incredibly full low register without compromising the sweetness
and clarity of the high register. It is a great way to upgrade any flute to a
professional sound. I have been very happy with the way this headjoint plays,
and I''m only selling it to upgrade to gold. I''ve won several auditions
with this headjoint, and have received many compliments on its clarity and full
low register. This headjoint lists for $895; I am asking $800 OBO. Please feel
free to email ( accidental_poet@email.com ) with any questions!
