The curved head joint brings the flute closer to the body so young children can reach all the keys without overstretching. Designed for younger children.
This flute has been designed by musicians for musicians and some of the worlds best players have been continually involved with the progress and development of this instrument.
The new 62 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 unique saxophone for the younger and smaller player!
Design – The Alphasax is based around the original body tube of an alto saxophone with completely redesigned mechanism and tone hole positioning for the smaller individual who would previously have been told to “wait until they got bigger” before they could learn to play the sax.
The Alphasax Solution to a normal alto saxophone for the younger or smaller player
Problematic keys with long finger stretch have been removed or redesigned for extra comfort.
The weight has been reduced by an amazing 33%.
Key and Mechanism – The Alphasax in the key of Eb, with a full two octave chromatic facility using established finger positioning to enable the smaller player to learn the alto saxophone using current study books. New and innovative mechanism has enabled us to maintain the finger positioning of a normal saxophone.
