The new 62S is an improved version of Yamaha's Classic 62 Series Sax, the instrument that revolutionized the world of the saxophone, becoming the first serious challenge to the famous instruments of the past. The 62 has always been the sax of choice for many of the world's top pros. Offering surprising value for the price, and amazing flexibility (it can be used for virtually any musical genre) it is characterized by a highly expressive tone, comfortable playability and extremely accurate intonation. One of the biggest new improvements to it is the G1 neck, which gives a better response and more playing flexibility. Also, the entire body has been annealed for a rich resonant sound.
The brass used in Yamaha professional model saxophones goes through an original acoustic annealing process that gives the metal optimum density for superior tone. In conjunction with other advanced design features, acoustic annealing also contributes to precise resistance and playability.
The position, height, angle and shape of the left-hand pinky keys have all been carefully redesigned to provide extraordinary comfort and quick response. All Yamaha saxophones feature an adjustable thumb rest to allow for precise and comfortable hand and fingering position.
Yamaha saxophone keys are not simply shaped and positioned to mechanical necessity; the entire system is designed from the player's perspective, with emphasis on comfort, speed, and overall playability. The natural feel of the keys eliminates the need to adapt to an unnatural or uncomfortable key layout.
YAS-62S features silver-plated finish.
