The legendary YTS-62 professional saxophone has evolved to suit the needs of any player from the rising student to the seasoned pro.

The 62 series has been a favorite of band directors everywhere since its launch by Yamaha back in 1979.  The global manufacturer's unrelenting drive for improvement and desire to provide musicians with instruments that will suit the needs of any level of player has now lead to the release of the new YAS-62III, available in standard gold lacquer or a beautiful silver-plated finish.

This new edition of one of Yamaha's most popular models has all of the improvements featured on the YAS-62II:
  • Moisture resistant silicon-treated leather pads
  • Blue steel springs for improved action
  • An adjustable thumb rest for comfort of the player
  • Annealed body, bell, and bow- a special process of heating and cooling the metal in manufacturing to provide a superior tone
  • Redesigned, customized key shape to provide the player with a more natural feel when holding the instrument and improved comfort while playing, as well as quicker response.
  • Front F and high F# keys for more alternate fingering options

All of those features already made for an incredible instrument, but Yamaha continues to raise its standards and now has improved it even further with:

The New 62-Style Neck:  The newly redesigned 62-style neck features a slightly narrower bore that provides a faster response and greater control when playing, as well as improving air flow, providing players of any level with a good, solid tone all around.

New Engraving: The new YAS-62III features a more elaborate engraving on the bell than previous incarnations of the series, providing an elegance and delicate beauty to go along with the improved playability.

Improved Low B-C# Connection: An improved mechanism from low B to C# ensures a proper seal for these notes which promotes a clear response throughout the low range of the instrument.

Backpack-Style Case: New to the 62-Series, this instrument comes with a deluxe semi-hard case with backpack straps, making transport easier, while also providing a sleek, contemporary look.

Silver-plated YAS-62III for Special Order only. Delivery time may vary based on Vendor availability.

          This is an AMAZING saxophone! I have literally fallen in love with it. It is smooth and the responsiveness on it second to none. This is a great price for this horn also. I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a professional level horn but not trying to completely break the bank for it. The overall saxophone is made with expert quality!

            Comments about Yamaha YAS-62III Professional Alto Saxophone:

            The YAS-62III in my eyes is perfect. The saxophone plays extremely well and has quick response. It has a warm and even tone that makes it suitable for almost any genre. I've played this saxophone numerous times and every time I can't believe how amazing this saxophone is. If you're looking for a professional level saxophone, take a look at this and try it out. You won't be sorry.

              Comments about Yamaha YAS-62III Professional Alto Saxophone:

              I can't believe no one has reviewed this sax yet. I bought the 62II when they annonced they were releasing the 62III because I am cheap and wanted a good deal on the 62II. I figured there wouldn't be a big difference.
              I walked into the Atlanta, GA store a few weeks ago and saw they had one of these new 62s. I figured I was just try it out and laugh within knowing I got an awesome deal on the same exact instrument (basically).
              After playing for about five minutes, my mouth dropped. I wish I had a time machine so I could go back and slap myself for being to cheap. This saxophone is perfect. I played it over and over and could not find any flaws with it. I am now selling my 62II, taking the loss and buying this GEM! Incredible and when you look at the prices of a lot of other brands, this is not a bad price! I highly suggest going down to your local store and testing it out! Worth every penny!
