  • New Old Stock Yamaha Purple Logo Baritone Saxophone YBS-62 Mint Unbelievable!

    $ 9,000

    This is an amazing chance to get a new old stock Purple Logo YBS-62 baritone saxophone. This sax was originally a display model that Yamaha brought to the USA for a trade show almost 40 years ago. Yamaha sold the instruments from the display, and they sat in someone’s closet for that entire time. This sax came in the plastic in the case, and I had to take it out to take photos. There are maybe a few of the lightest possible surface scratches not through the lacquer, but aside from that, it looks as new as it could be and be from the early 80’s. The tone is beautiful and warm, rich, and medium focused. Intonation is great. Works with just about any mouthpiece. This horn can play the full range from classical to funk no problem and be as reliable as a Lexus day after day, year after year. This is BY FAR the nicest example of a purple logo 62 baritone that I have seen, and the nicest one we are likely to see.

    It has the case keys, the polishing cloth, mouthpiece and ligature, warranty booklet, and even a set of removable wheels that attach to the end of the case so that you can roll it if you want. First time I have seen that. If you want a beautiful baritone to play that is really special, this is it. And at this price, it’s about the same as buying a modern 62, so you don’t even pay a premium to get the new old stock. That’s pretty great.

  • Yamaha SILVER YSS-82ZRS Soprano Saxophone Near Mint Condition Stohrer Setup Excellent 3231

    $ 4,450

    Best modern soprano available: Lightest, most resonant, most in tune, most comfortable to play, best long term investment. It’s a modern classic. Yamaha YSS-82ZRS one piece, bent neck soprano in mint condition. This INCLUDES (for free) a whole-day (normally $350), crazy new horn setup by Matt Stohrer, who is one of the best saxophone repairmen around. Plus it’s priced $400 below the new price. That’s a superb deal. This is basically a reissue of the wonderful and highly-desirable YSS-62RS soprano, and it sounds the same once it’s all setup with the right key heights and spring tensions. 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.

  • Yamaha YAS-875S Alto Saxophone Original Silver Plate M1 and G1 Necks Excellent

    $ 3,450

    Update: This is getting a complete high-end overhaul and hand polish. It will look nearly brand new when it is done, and it will feel and play better than new. These 875’s are wonderful players. My first pro tenor was the 875S like this, and I quickly bought the matching alto and played them for years. This one will have a setup better than you get on a new one, with faster, lighter action, and everything mechanically tight and ready to go for the next many years. The silver is nearly 100% present, so it will look basically new. Interestingly, this alto comes with both the original silver M1 neck, AND a special silver plated G1 neck! You could complete the set and order a new silver V1 neck from me if you want to.

    This will be a great modern alto with a dark, complex tone and lots of interest to it. It works great for jazz and commercial music with a high baffle mouthpiece, because the darker tone stays fatter with the bright mouthpiece, and no other Yamaha has a darker more round classical tone than the original YAS-875. The EX is a wonderful saxophone, but it is brighter and clearer than the 875, so many folks who have come through the shop have preferred the fullness of the 875. No bad option there.

    Only one available!

    Yamaha YSS-475 Soprano Saxophone Near Mint Condition Made with YSS-62 Tooling

    $ 1,650

    The YSS-475 is made with the tooling from the YSS-62 and plays just like a coveted Yamaha 62 purple logo soprano, but costs less. This makes it by far the best entry-priced soprano saxophone. It’s really a professional soprano for an intermediate price. Tunes great, sounds warm and pleasant, keywork is comfortable, and the price is low. What’s not to love?

    This one has been played only a tiny bit since new, and it looks almost like a new instrument. It includes everything in the photos – nice original case, mouthpiece, and some other accessories. It comes with a fresh checkup to make sure the low-miles pads are sealing their best.

    These always sell quickly. Get yours before it is gone.

    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.

  • Yamaha YTS-475 Intermediate Tenor Saxophone Good Playing Condition Great Value! 298213

    $ 1,600

    Great deal on one of the best intermediate tenor saxophones on the market. The Yamaha 475 is made in Japan and plays a lot like a YTS-62, but costs less. This tenor has been played a fair amount. The pads are sealing pretty well right now, but it is a mix of older and newer pads. The neck had a dent removed, and it was done well, so it looks good now. If you want a very well-built tenor, that feels good, tunes well, and is easy on the budget, this is it. Don’t waste your money on a new no-name sax. Those will be worth peanuts as soon as they are used. Yamaha horns are quality and hold their value really well. You can basically play it and enjoy it and sell it later for right around what you paid. Hard to beat.
