Already a legend, the Yamaha YAS-62 Alto Saxophone (the "62") attained the love and respect of a wide range of players for its highly reliable performance and outstanding quality. It owes its success to a group of dedicated designers with great vision, and highly skilled craftsmen performing their work with an extraordinary level of devotion, perfection, and passion. It is characterised by a very expressive tone, comfortable playability and extremely accurate intonation. One notable improvement on previous models is the new neck which gives a better response and more playing flexibility. The entire body has also been annealed for a rich resonant sound. It also features a professional neck receiver meaning players can add on any of the Yamaha Custom necks at a later date, perhaps for example adding a V1 which comes with the 82Z series would give the YAS-62 a bigger, brighter sound for a more experienced player.
The new 62 is a modernised and improved version of Yamaha's Classic 62 Series Sax, the instrument that revolutionized the world of the saxophone, becoming the first serious challenge to the famous instruments of the past such as the Mark VI. What makes the Yamaha 62 so special is that it is very much designed as a blank canvas. The 62 lets the player take the lead and can be put to work in pretty much any context. From rock to classical, it responds well right across the board. Anyone who’s finding themselves held back by their student instrument, or a more advanced player looking for a great professional level sax on a budget, they should definitely consider a 62 as their next step forward.
