The custom line of horns by Yamaha have always been highly sought after, and have held their value quite well, due not only to how they play and sound but also to the high quality of craftsmanship. This 868 is made of unlacquered yellow brass with a fixed bell. It has perfect compression at 0.1 and is ready for performance.
There are some minor dings but overall it is in excellent shape.
The case is a Reunion Blues Fixed Gig Bag.
If you like the dark sound of the 8D but dislike the playing quirks of the 8D, this horn is the perfect answer.
