OVERVIEW

Improvement on a classic.

A favorite among band directors for decades, the 62 model saxophones (and their predecessor, the 61) have redefined the market by offering superior quality and durability at an affordable 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 YAS-62III carries the tradition of excellence forward while introducing firther refinements to the already sound design of the 62.

The new 62 neck's slightly narrower bore provides a faster response and greater control relative to its predecessor. The 62 style neck allows a comfortable flow of air so that every player can attain a solid tonal core. The engraving is now more elaborate with finer detail, 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, and the instrument now comes with a semi-hard case that offers a contemporary look and greater ease of transport.

FEATURES
  • Free blowing
  • Redesigned for fast response
  • Beautiful tone

Comments about Yamaha YAS-62III Professional Alto Saxophone:

The action is incredible - so even and easy to play. I have the lacquered version of the 62, and sometimes it is too warm for me. I love the bright tone you get from a silver plated saxophone - it will really cut through the ensemble. I keep it simple and play with a Rascher mouthpiece. A pure tone for sure.

    Comments about Yamaha YAS-62III Professional Alto Saxophone:

    Through out my career with the Navy Band I played a lot of different instruments. My favorite was the YAS 62II Alto Saxophone. This sax is very responsive, easy blowing, and it sounds great.

    This a great horn for experienced students and pros alike.

          Comments about Yamaha YAS-62III Professional Alto Saxophone:

          I've wanted to purchase a professional-level alto sax for quite some time, and concluded that the Yamaha 62III was the best match for what I was looking for. I'm very happy with this sax, and my experience in dealing with the Musicians Friend!
