This is a beautiful, near mint purple label Yamaha 62 alto. It has only a few light scratches on the back of the body, and the rest of the horn is basically perfect. It comes with the original case and a nice vintage Yamaha case cover as well! This is a super-clean example of one of the best modern altos period. It plays well with a medium bright tone, great intonation, and a more interesting-sounding core to the sound than most other Yamahas. The tone is more Selmer-leaning and more like a Mark VI in general than you will find on just about any other modern horn that I know of.
These horns work well for every kind of playing, from serious saxophone study to jazz to rock and beyond (Dave Koz plays one of these for smooth jazz!). This is because they are really mouthpiece-friendly, and so you can change the overall sound a LOT based on what mouthpiece you use.
This horn comes in the original case with original case cover as well, which is cool. These horns keep going up in value, and pristine original examples most of all. So get a solid, well-made modern alto that sounds good, and play it while it also appreciates! That’s hard to beat.
