Highly expressive with a resonant tone. The Yamaha YAS62S alto saxophone maintains the excellent response and flexibility of previous models while benefiting from redesigned features. Capable of producing a versatile tone, the YAS62S is ideal all music styles.
The tone of the saxophone has never been easier to control thanks to the new 62 neck. With a slightly narrower bore, the neck produces a darker tone which has a more solid tonal core. An improved low B-C# mechanism ensures the low C# key shuts reliably, while also achieving a clearer response from notes in the lower ranges.
Included with the YAS62S alto saxophone is a semi-hard case with backpack straps and a Yamaha 4C so you can start practising straight away.
