The updated version of the popular 62 series.

The YAS-62IIS Professional Alto Saxophone features a newly designed neck receiver that allows you to project a more even tone. A custom-style octave key was redesigned for a smoother and quicker response. A silicon treatment helps protect the leather pads from moisture. Comes with blue steel springs for faster, more sensitive key response and higher resiliency. Annealing—a process of heating and cooling—gives the metal optimum density for superior tone. An adjustable thumb rest allows for precise and comfortable hand and fingering positions. The position, height, angle, and shape of the left-hand pinky keys have been re-designed for comfort and response. With an emphasis on comfort and speed, the key shape has been designed to allow you to hold the saxophone in a more natural manner.

Comments about Yamaha YAS-62II Series Professional Alto Saxophone:

I've owned one of these horns for around a year and a half when I bought it as a step uo from my student horn. In the middle and low registers the tone is rich, but in the higher end of the horn it becomes very thin sounding. A few pitch problems, but in general tuning is good. Overall tone is good although even with a classical set up... vandoren al3 mouthpiece, optimum ligature and 3-3 1/2 vandonren reeds, the horn plays on the bright side of things. Great for jazz, but for more classical concentrations go with a higher end horn. Horn has great reliability, never had to bring it to the shop and never had to replace anything. Nice asthetics lend the horn and easy to look at appearance. For the price a good horn, but for the serious, commited student buy a higher end horn.
