Yamaha YAS-62III Professional Alto Saxophone
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 from Yamaha 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 YAS-62III carries the tradition of excellence forward while introducing further refinements to the already sound design of the 62.The YAS-62III 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.
