Revamped workhorse tenor sax.
The Yamaha YTS-62III tenor saxophone is the result of more than five decades of commitment to the professional saxophonist. The YTS-62III’s roots are in the YTS-61, introduced in 1969 as part of Yamaha’s bold entry into manufacturing top-quality wind instruments. The YTS-62III’s more direct ancestor, the YTS-62, was brought to market in 1978. It has been a favorite of educators, students and professional musicians ever since.
The YTS-62 has seen more than forty years of market testing, and the YTS-62III reflects all of Yamaha’s woodwind expertise. It is the benchmark of sound, response, intonation and reliability in a professional-quality tenor saxophone. Classical, jazz, rock, pop, funk and more can all be found inside this wonderful horn. It feels good, looks good, sounds good and is attractively priced.
One of the best-made tenors available, the YTS-62III features fully ribbed construction, yet its weight is comfortable and well balanced. It is hand-adjusted, and the two-piece bell, body and neck and are all hand-hammered to shape. Its new engraving design is likewise done by hand, instilling a uniqueness in each instrument. Multiple key posts are integrated into a single plate, which lends the horn moderate resistance while delivering a solid core with deep tone color. Hard steel springs offer a fast, sensitive key response. It has a Front F key along with a high F# key and an adjustable thumb rest.
The world saxophone community has had its hands on the YTS-62III since 2013, and the response is all positive. If you hear a saxophonist talking about “the new 62,” this is the one. The redesigned neck of the 62III is designed to appeal to a broader range of saxophonists. Its slightly narrower but still moderate bore provides fast response and ease of control. The YTS-62III also features a redesigned B-C# connection that allows for more precise key adjustments. A newly designed case offers lightweight but protective transportation. It also has an outside pocket, backpack straps and a shoulder strap for portability. Comes with quality mouthpiece and care products.MPN: YTS-62IIIS
