HELP, I Want One!

Awesome Player – Vintage YTS – 62 Tenor
This is a very nice player! Yamaha YTS-62 “Purple Logo” tenor saxophone in original lacquer, serial number 005413. While the tenor might not be the prettiest looking horn around it sure can play. The YTS 62 has a impressive forward focus to the way it projects and is quite flexible regarding its sonic character. It can be played warm and sensitive or can be played with a hard cutting brilliance. The ultra fluid key work and precisely balanced pitch make the YTS 62 an incredible player for the on the go pro tenor player. 
The body of the tenor does show the history of an instrument that has seen plenty of performances but it shows no signs of slowing down. A good portion of the original lacquer is off of the saxophone. This is most likely a contributing factor to its ultra quick response to air. I have looked closely on the saxophone and see just one re-solder to the key guard foot of the low Eb key guard. The body of the sax does show some history of mild dent work but it has never seem major repair. Its body tube, bow and bell are all in very solid condition. The previous owner also had an additional neck strap ring soldered onto the sax. This saxophone does include the original neck in very good condition. Most of the lacquer finish is off of the neck as well. 
This saxophone came to us having just been freshly set-up from another shop. All of the leather pads are in great shape and the horns action feels superb as well. Saxquest is also going to check the horn out before it ships to ensure it arrives to the customer in perfect playing condition. Sax ships with black SKB contoured case. If you are in the market to get into a nice pro horn for under 2,000 it is going to be hard to beat the tried and true YTS 62.
