Widely regarded as the least expensive silver-plated "professional quality" sax
A perfect upgrade from your student sax or a great, versatile horn for a professional player - the YAS62S has long represented a benchmark for entry-level pro horns.
For an’ all rounder’ the Yamaha YAS62 is extremely hard to beat. Very much designed as a blank canvas, this horn is at home in pretty much any context from rock to classical and responds well right across the board. Anyone who’s finding themselves held back by their student instrument, or a more advanced player looking for a great sax on a budget should definitely consider a 62 as their next step forward.
The brass body is left unlacquered and plated with beautiful bright silver plating. The lack of lacquer does mean occasional cleaning with a silver cloth is required in order to maintain the finish. However, the added layer of resonant precious metal gives more projection and a wonderful extra dimension to the sound.
The Beauty of Silver Plating
The gradual formation of patina on silver-plated saxophones imparts an exceptional charm and character to the instrument. It's a captivating visual transformation that resonates with many musicians, as the saxophone evolves and matures with the passage of time.
It is important to acknowledge that although silver polish cloths are available, the natural process of tarnishing cannot be completely halted.
Within just a few days, you will start to witness the beginning of this transformation. It's worth noting that many instruments we receive from the factory have already embarked on this natural journey.

One of the most successful saxes of all time and I love it - it was my choice of upgrade sax 30 years ago. Smooth and comfortable to play with a powerful tone. Deservedly recommended by teachers Worldwide. Everything you would expect from a Yamaha and a little bit more! Along with many Yamaha endorsees, we find their silver plated models really do have some extra "star quality." Phill Straker (Sax.co.uk)
Please note: Yamaha does not allow us to sell you this saxophone if you live outside of the EU. We highly recommend browsing the exceptional range of Yanagisawa saxophones which are available for all international customers.
