Yamaha “YAS-62” Alto Sax (Purple Logo)
Here is a professional model sax that anyone would be proud to own. These instruments with the Purple Logo are considered to be some of the best saxes made by Yamaha. These horns were made from the late 1970's into the early 1990 and were Yamaha's top of the line instruments of that era. They are better than the later models of the YAS-62's. I've considered keeping it for myself but I already have a plethora of saxes. This particular alto is in pristine condition plus, I just did a complete repad on it and it plays like a dream. A complete repad consists of disassembling the horn, washing every piece of it, reassembling, replacing all the pads and corks, then completely regulating and adjusting it. Hey, it plays like a brand new horn. If you are ready to move up from a student model or intermediate model sax then you should come try this horn.
