Yamaha “Purple Logo” YTS-62 Tenor Saxophone
ON HOLD – SALE PENDING!
The Yamaha “Purple Logo” saxophones represent a fantastic value in saxophones: modern ergonomics and intonation, warm and full vintage-y tone, and prices lower than either a new horn or most vintage saxophones. It is a combination that is hard to beat, and people who have played one will tell you its a horn that is undervalued.
This tenor was built in the 1980s, and has held up very well. Physically it is straight with no dents, lacquer has scratches but is fully intact. This saxophone is presently undergoing a full repad where it will get disassembled, cleaned, toneholes checked and perfected, and all new pads with flat seamless metal resonators in it for a fat and warm sound.
Comes in its original Yamaha case in good condition.
Once the overhaul is complete, I will add more pictures here. In the meantime, feel free to ask questions or reserve this horn if you are interested.
THIS SAXOPHONE HAS BEEN SOLD!
