Purple Label Yamaha 62 Soprano Saxophone, YSS-62
Purple label Yamaha 62 soprano saxophone. The s/n is 54xx, so this is one of the earliest 62's ever made. The sax had a recent overhaul, so the pads are perfect and sealing very well. The lacquer is original and has darkened considerably over the years, sort of like an early 1960's Mark VI. There are no dents and the body tube is straight. The sax has a very sweet, complex tone. Getting around on this feels like a breeze and the entire range from low Bb to high F# (and beyond) speaks easily. The sax comes in a ProTec case which is in excellent condition.
