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.
Yamaha YSS-82ZRS Soprano Saxophone One Piece Bent Neck Silver Plate!$ 4,650
The Yamaha YSS-62R and 62RS are the most desirable vintage sopranos pretty much. Yamaha made an upgraded reissue of this soprano, with improved keywork but the same bore. It’s simply the best.
