This is an early 1980s Yamaha YTS62 professional tenor sax made in Japan.
A fantastic playing tenor in very nice condition - super easy to play and far superior in every way to the current production models. In the late 70s and 80s Yamaha were really pulling out all the stops making fantastic saxes out of the best quality materials. The brass in these early 80s 62s is superb and they have a great strong, thick, meaty sound that seems to be missing from the new models. This model is commonly referred to as a "Purple Logo" model due to the Yamaha badge being printed on the bell rather than stamped and are becoming quite collectible and sought after as players know how good they are! Possibly the ultimate "workhorse" pro sax - they are super reliable and perfect for any playing situation - all styles/ genres.
This one is in terrific shape - it has been played but not battered! There are a few marks and scratches on the lacquer and a couple of little bumps here and there but nothing horrible! It is in super, clean condition - all rods, keys perfect - no wear. It has had a custom rebuild with black Roo pads and Maestro star solid brass reflectors costing over £400!!
Tuning is great, action is very light and quick - a joy to play.
Overall a very nice, super playing, classic Japanese horn with all the work done at a great affordable price!
Comes complete with a great condition, original, leather bound case and of course, our famous 12 month warranty!
