Yamaha YSS-62 Soprano Early Version 5xxx New Pads!
The Yamaha 62 is still the best single piece soprano that has been made. It came in two versions, the straight one (this one) and the one that is slightly curved (see the 62R in the museum section). Both horns have such a nice, rich tone that they are really hard to beat. Some vintage horns, like the Conn New Wonder II, Buescher True Tone, or the Martin Handcraft can beat with the 62 in the tone department, but all of these have more flexible intonation and vintage ergonomics. So if you are looking for the soprano that has it all, it is the 62. This particular horn is in excellent condition. It has a recent repad by Matt Stohrer.
Selmer Super Action 80 Series 1 Alto 334xxx$ 3,150
This is a good condition Selmer Super Action 80 Alto Saxophone. This horn is a Series 1, which has a darker, more complex tone than the Series II’s and III’s do. The Series I’s also have great build quality, employing real pivot screws (not spring loaded ones like the more recent Selmers).
The great thing about these horns is that the dark core tone is ideal for serious saxophone study/lessons/college and also combines well with a brighter jazz mouthpiece to give you a nice jazz tone as well. If I were buying a modern, do-it-all Selmer alto, and I wasn’t going to drop twice this much money on a new Selmer, I would buy a nice Series I like this over the others, hands down.
