    Yamaha SILVER YSS-82ZRS Soprano Saxophone Near Mint Condition Setup Excellent 3195

    $ 4,500

    This is a mint condition Yamaha YSS-82ZRS soprano. The Yamaha 82ZRS is basically a reissue of the popular Yamaha 62 soprano. The silver versions were the most desirable of the Yamaha YSS-62R on which the 82ZR is based. So if you have always wanted to get a Yamaha YSS-62RS this is nearly identical, but with some upgraded keywork. The main changes are that the left hand pinky (spatula) keys are now easier to operate and the palm keys are a little more comfortable. Yamaha tells me that the bore and dimensions of the 82ZR are exactly the same as the 62R, and on purpose. It is meant to be a modern reissue of the enormously popular 62R. With the 62R, Yamaha finally broke with the Selmer Mark VI soprano tonal concept and do something warmer, rounder, and more pleasant. It became an instant classic. There’s a big demand for more of these, so Yamaha helpfully rose to the occasion.

    The reason that the 62R/82ZR is so popular is the combination of one piece design – no neck joint to lose air or resonance – and the warm, complex tone that these horns get. And the bent neck, which brings the horn down onto the neck strap for added comfort. Branford Marsalis plays this model, and sounds wonderful on it. I think he helped with the keywork improvements also. In short, it’s probably the best modern soprano available: Lightest, most resonant, very in tune, most comfortable to play, best long term investment. It’s a modern classic.

    If like me, you have always wanted one of these horns in silver, now is your chance.

    Yamaha YSS-82ZRS one piece, bent neck soprano in mint condition.  This is basically a reissue of the YSS-62RS soprano, and it sounds the same or better (being nearly brand new) once it’s all setup with the right key heights and spring tensions like this one is. This will be collectible someday, as they always have a 6 month wait to buy one on special order and are sold in small numbers.

  • Yanagisawa S990 Soprano Saxophone High G Very Good Condition 210471

    $ 3,150

    Used Yanagisawa S990 soprano saxophone in very good condition. This one has the high G key! the S990 sounds a bit warmer and more rich than the S991/SWO10, which I like. This particular soprano is in very goood cosmetic and physical condition. It has been played some, and the pads are original, so plan on getting some pads replaced for it to play its very best. In particular, the palm key pads will need replacing, along with some lower stack pads probably cleaned at least. This soprano is on consignment for a good past customer, and I haven’t done any work on it for that reason. However, I did reduce the price so that you can easily get it tuned up when you receive it.

    It plays very well currently, and has a beautiful, rich, bell-like tone that is medium between bright and dark. Intonation is very good. I actually love the included Yanagisawa hard rubber soprano mouthpiece (5 tip). It’s easy to play, responds well, tunes great, and has a rich tone. Great first (or last) soprano mouthpiece if you don’t already have one, and it’s included in the price. This sax has both necks, straight and semicurved. The semicurved neck puts the weight of the horn on the neckstrap instead of on your thumb, which is a big improvement over a fully straight soprano in my opinion. These sopranos are hard to find in good shape, and this one is quite nice.

    Only one available!
