Yamaha Purple Logo 62 Tenor
This a very sweet Yamaha YTS-62 tenor saxophone, serial number 023789. These Yamaha “Purple Logo” tenors are heavily sought after for their balanced intonation, sonic character and reliability. They are also a go to choice for the professional who needs to stay on a budget. As a player this tenor has a slightly brighter sound and an incredible amount of projection. The key work feels smooth and compact under the fingers and allows for an easy play. It does feature modern key work to high F#.
 
The body of the tenor shows the history of a horn that has had a decent amount of playtime but it was also very well maintained. The body tube, bow and bell are all in great shape. Looking over the tenor very closely there is a small handful of re-solders on some of the key guard feet to low C and Eb. There are also a few smaller dings around the bow area that will be removed in the Saxquest shop. The bow cap of the tenor is in excellent original condition and has never been pushed in. This saxophone includes the original neck. The neck was pulled down in the past but will be brought back up to its proper position by the Saxquest shop. 
 
This saxophone is currently in the Saxquest shop awaiting a professional set-up. The set-up will include a complete dissemble and cleaning of the instrument. All of the corks and felts will be replaced with new premium materials and the sax will then be precisely regulated.  The job will also include taking out the smallish dings around the bow. 
 
If you are looking to get into a workhorse of a horn for a good price this purple logo will be very difficult to beat!  Horn ships in perfect playing condition in a good SKB hardshell case.
