This "purple logo" Yamaha Saxophone is one of Yamaha's professional level models from the 1980's. Often said to be the best of what Yamaha has ever offered the professional market. These are different in both feel, tone, and construction to the modern version of the YAS-62. It possess all of the qualities a player expects from a modern saxophone though. Yamaha Japan construction, comfortable ergonomics, and excellent intonation. The tone is full and rich and rings with a 'vintage brass' quality. This sax is a different breed of Yamaha, and represents one of the best values in the saxophone world today if you are looking for modern ergonomics. It truly is the best of both worlds, a rich vintage tone with modern ergonomics and scale, and craftsmanship that is hard to beat.
In it's current state, the saxophone is in need of a full repad and adjustment. The horn does NOT currently play full range or scale. All parts are present, but the work has yet to be completed. The price reflects the cost of the saxophone AS-IS. If you'd prefer to have us complete the work prior to shipping, please contact the shop directly.
