Do not buy this if you have an older model YAS62

Comments about Yamaha G1 Neck for Alto Saxophone:

I purchased this neck to experiment a little and make a potential enhancement to intonation and, after reading a few of the reviews recommending, decided to give it a whirl. I have a YAS62 that I bought in the mid 90's and absolutely love. After receiving the lovely new neck and noticing it's considerably lighter in weight than the old, the octave key mechanism/lever does not remotely line up. So I took it in for repair and the experienced personnel at the repair shop told me they were not comfortable in bending the new neck, apply torque and pressure necessary to where it needs to be lined up to match. It does not fit at all according to their diagnostic. So, in short, I had to return it and I would not recommend this neck if you have an older model YAS62.

Comments about Yamaha G1 Neck for Alto Saxophone:

I bought a new yas62 alto in 1995 to play in a local, outstanding big band. I've always loved the intonation and consistency in the horn. I play third alto under our lead player, George Corwin, who has a beautiful sounding 90, XXX Mark IV. Previously, I was never able to match his tone or projection, especially at low volume, until now that is. The new G1 neck is awesome. The exception is that I had to take the neck to my repairman in order to make the octave mechanism long enoough to fit the older 62. Nevertheless, it's hard to believe that one piece of equipment could make such a dramatic difference in regards to sound. My sound is richer and my horn just singsl Even at low volume and in low registers, my horn still screams. Regardless of the registers played, sound quality is no longer compromised. At first I thought I would have to spend thousands of dollars to purchase a new horn in order to get the sound I was after. However, thanks to the Yamaha engineers, instead of spending thousands on a new horn, I was able to save money by purchasing a new neck instead which granted me the sound I was after.they saved me thousands of dollars I use a brilhart level aire # 8 metal with fibracel premier # 2 reed. ( love both)

Comments about Yamaha G1 Neck for Alto Saxophone:

This is one heck of a neck. I personally have bought the silver plated neck to accompany my lacquered CustomZ. It sounds great and produces an extremely rich vibrant tone. If I had to say one thing bad about it, it would have to be that it has a problem with staying in tune. Aside from that you got to love the way the design is crafted.
