Yamaha YSS-62R 62 R Soprano Sax Saxophone


⭕ Out of production now for several years,the purple-logo 62-series sopranos are some of the most sought-after sopranos out there.It is considered to be the best soprano Yamaha made, and by many,the best soprano made period.The curved-neck model is rare and even more sought-after than the regular 62. The one-piece curved-neck design allows for comfortable playing with a neckstrap.Wayne Shorter plays a silver-plated curved-neck 62.
Cosmetically,this soprano is in excellent condition.It has about 95% of the original lacquer intact. There is minor lacquer wear on the usual touchpoints on the keys as well as the low Bb rod.There are some minor scratches on the back of the horn around the neckstrap area.The bell has a minor ding and a little lacquer wear where it was set in a soprano stand.There are NO OTHER DENTS or DINGS that I can find on the horn.These are very minor things which would never be noticed standing 1-foot away,but I bring them up just to be thorough. Overall, this horn is sweet!Its a beautiful horn and is a testament to the quality of Yamahas construction,which is known to withstand a lot of abuse.
Of course, what really matters is how the sax plays.The intonation is spot-on and the horn plays freely and smoothly throughout the entire range.The pads are in great shape and wont need to be changed for a good, long while.
