A favorite among band directors for decades, the 62 model saxophones (and their predecessor, the 61) have redefined the market by offering superior quality and durability at an affordable price.. Introduced in 1979, the YAS-62 and YTS-62 saxophones withstand the tests of time and competition and have been in a continual state of improvement since the launch of the YAS-61 in 1969.

Features:
NEW 62 Style Neck:

I'm still basically a beginner; although, I've played many different saxes and none of them made me feel as good as this one does. I also have the same model tenor. This sax (for me) sounds better and plays better than all the others; including a P. Muriat, which is a pretty nice sax. I find that I can play faster on this one, due to the great action. I've tried so many different horns and have been trying to find my "sound". Well; I've found it! I can play many different songs; but not as good as I'd like to. With the 62III, I don't have to try as hard to sound good. I don't have to look for another sax; as I have everything I need, right here. I progress a bit more each day and this horn is a joy to play, which will keep me motivated to continue. I sometimes don't play for long; but I try to play ever day. I have seen professional players/teachers rave about this sax on YouTube. I can understand why! I started playing as a senior and I don't know how many years I have left. One thing I do know; is that they'll be good ones!
