YaritzaMcIntyre's review of Yamaha YTS62 Tenor Saxophone


“love or hate it”

Written on: 14/11/2016 by YaritzaMcIntyre (1 review written)

tried many sax tenors and none grabbed me. even the yanigasawas.
They were all good but not me.
The sound
This brought tears to my eyes.
Of course I bought it.
It has a personality, love it or hate it but you can not forget it.
I use a yaganisawa 9 gap metal mouthpiece with a leather ligature and a forestone hinoki ms reed.
I play classical and jazz on sax and piano.
I had a student model sax for a year because I did not know If I was going to like playing one.
I rarely play anything else now.
The 62 made difficulties fade away. Its fast and so light to the touch it took a while for me to know when I hit other keys at the same time.
The palm keys are close to hand and very fast and smooth.
The low range keys easy to press and likewise fast.
The rollers changed notes without a in-between warble.
This is probably true for anyone coming from a student to a pro model.
So this sax gives me what I want in that I can largely play on autopilot and listen to that sound.
