The new 62 is an improved version of Yamaha's Classic 62 Series Sax, the instrument that revolutionised 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 characterised 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 YAS/YTS-280 saxophones offer a perfect start because they are designed with the young beginner in mind. Relatively light-weight and ergonomically shaped, they are easy to hold and to play. The intonation is perfect, as you would expect from Yamaha, and it is easy to get a great sound. The Yamaha design offers beginners optimum support, thus greatly assisting both learning progress and creativity.
Based on the highly recommended YAS/YTS-275 saxophones the new YAS/YTS-280 are even further enhanced with a new, more stable neck receiver and a new low B-C# connection for better adjustment.
