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.

We pay the best prices for great saxophones.

Description

The Yamaha 62 is still the best overall 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. There are no dents or dings or resolders. The bell flare looks like it had a little dent removed, but it is hard to tell now, because it was done very well.

This horn recently got ALL NEW PADS by Matt Stohrer, and it plays GREAT! It plays effortlessly top to bottom – one of the best playing 62’s that I’ve played. It feels light in your hands, and it is ergonomically excellent all-around. Intonation is great as well, like all Yamaha saxophones. It ships in the original case, which is in good condition as well. This should be a great horn that makes someone very happy!
