The legendary Yamaha YAS-62 professional alto saxophone has evolved to suit the needs of almost any player - from the seasoned pro on down.
The new Yamaha YAS62, a favorite among professional saxophonists and band directors for decades, has redefined the market by offering superior quality and durability at a competitive price.
Introduced in 1979, the YAS-62 and YTS-62 saxophones withstand the tests of time and competition and have been in a continual state of improvement since the launch of the YAS-61 in 1969.
The new 62 style neck allows a comfortable flow of air so that every player can attain a solid tonal core. A slightly narrower bore provides a faster response and greater control.
Other important features include: a new design offers delicate beauty with more elaborate and finer detail engraving; an improved mechanism from low B to C# ensures a proper seal for these notes which promotes a clear response throughout the low range of the instrument.
The new Yamaha YAS62III has a semi-hard, backpack-style case that offers a contemporary look and greater ease of transport.
