From the archive: VIto - Taiwan
A bit of a stranger in soprano land: this Vito was made in Taiwan. So its not a professional Yanagisawa stencil, but surely not a cheap Chinese copy also. It features the high F sharp key and blue steel springs. It's well build, has a nice sound, plays in tune and is rather easy to play due to it's comfortable keywork. It's well maintained and was played only a couple of times. Condition : In almost new condition, so no need for an overhaul. All pads are like new and this soprano plays very nice from top to bottom. Perfect for a student, a doubler, or as a backup instrument. Theres no damage at all on this sax. The lacquer is in perfect condition, only some lacquer wear on the high D key. No dents or repairs. The previous owner in the US engraved the sax for some reason.Warranty : as-is condition : no warranty.Level : Student / intermediate.Body : Lacquer : original lacquer.Condition : excellent, only minor wear and tear.Visual : no issues .Repairs : none.Engraving : logo only.Keywork : Lacquered.Condition : excellent, only minor wear and tear.Pads : very good.Features : High F#.Case : original case.Case condition : very good.History : Not available, from auction in the US. Imported in 2019.Remarks : Some online research : This Vito soprano was built in Taiwan in the 1980s, when the KHS factory started their production on the Jupiter brand also. Not much further info available, unfortunately..... Its identical to the earlier Jupiter soprano saxes, the 1000 and 1100 series sopranos are the Jupiter typed available now....
