The 62 series has been a favorite of band directors everywhere since its launch by Yamaha back in 1979.  The global manufacturer's unrelenting drive for improvement and desire to provide musicians with instruments that will suit the needs of any level of player has now lead to the release of the new YAS-62III, available in standard gold lacquer or a beautiful silver-plated finish.

This new edition of one of Yamaha's most popular models has all of the improvements featured on the YAS-62II:
  • Moisture resistant silicon-treated leather pads
  • Blue steel springs for improved action
  • An adjustable thumb rest for comfort of the player
  • Annealed body, bell, and bow- a special process of heating and cooling the metal in manufacturing to provide a superior tone
  • Redesigned, customized key shape to provide the player with a more natural feel when holding the instrument and improved comfort while playing, as well as quicker response.
  • Front F and high F# keys for more alternate fingering options

All of those features already made for an incredible instrument, but Yamaha continues to raise its standards and now has improved it even further with:

The New 62-Style Neck:  The newly redesigned 62-style neck features a slightly narrower bore that provides a faster response and greater control when playing, as well as improving air flow, providing players of any level with a good, solid tone all around.

New Engraving: The new YAS-62III features a more elaborate engraving on the bell than previous incarnations of the series, providing an elegance and delicate beauty to go along with the improved playability.

Improved Low B-C# Connection: An improved mechanism from low B to C# ensures a proper seal for these notes which promotes a clear response throughout the low range of the instrument.

Backpack-Style Case: New to the 62-Series, this instrument comes with a deluxe semi-hard case with backpack straps, making transport easier, while also providing a sleek, contemporary look.

Silver-plated YAS-62III for Special Order only. Delivery time may vary based on Vendor availability.

New sax new me


I started with the series I over 20 years ago and was much delighted to play this one. The air flow and ease of flow of keys is great. I loe the sound quality and it's great.



Truly perfect saxophone


It's perfect! Exactly what my daughter wanted. The saxophone arrived in perfect condition, packed carefully to prevent shipping damages. My daughter has been playing the alto saxophone since she was in 4th grade. After a couple of beginner level saxophones, she was due for an upgrade. This fit the bill. My daughter says it sounds so much better than her previous saxophones. She is extremely happy.



"Absolutely an amazing instrument with a full rich sound"


This is the best high school graduation present I could have imagined. I have been playing the sax since eighth grade, and was feeling a sense of loss leaving Bela (my assigned sax at school) behind. I have difficulty expressing myself in words sometimes. But, with my horn I can convey my thoughts, feelings, and emotions quite well. This sax is the ultimate, as it's ease of key mastery affords me the ability to use and explore the rich melodious sound that this instrument produces. It is truly a work of art.

Amazing Sax!!!


This is an AMAZING saxophone! I have literally fallen in love with it. It is smooth and the responsiveness on it second to none. This is a great price for this horn also. I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a professional level horn but not trying to completely break the bank for it. The overall saxophone is made with expert quality!

Best instrument for the price


The YAS-62III in my eyes is perfect. The saxophone plays extremely well and has quick response. It has a warm and even tone that makes it suitable for almost any genre. I've played this saxophone numerous times and every time I can't believe how amazing this saxophone is. If you're looking for a professional level saxophone, take a look at this and try it out. You won't be sorry. This is a real, hands on product review by Sean at Sam Ash Indianapolis.
