Product Information

The new Yamaha YBS-62II Baritone Sax takes over from an already legendary original version. Loved by players for decades, the 62 series Bari Saxes offer a huge sound which is even from top to bottom and supreme intonation. 

The new YBS-62II benefits from various small design changes to the old model. All of these have been designed to make it even more comfortable to hold and play whilst building on that amazing core tone found on the original 62 models. In addition to the changes below, the 62II benefits from a different brass compound to the cheaper 480 model.

Key Layout

A newly designed key layout has been introduced to make the feel of the keys more ergonomic for most hand shapes. The keys and mechanism has also been made slightly lighter to make the overall instrument weigh less and to offer even quicker response under the fingers.

New Key Designs

There are various individual key modifications on the new YBS-62 Baritone Saxophone. Working with their Research & Design team and players at many levels, Yamaha have made modifications to the following keys: Front F, Low A, Octave Key, Palm Keys, Upper and Lower Table Keys. Most of these changes have been to help the keys sit more comfortably under the fingers and allow for a more comfortable reach and playing experience.

Overall Balance

Yamaha have modified the strap-ring position to help this Baritone sit more comfortably on a sling or harness. The shorter bell design is not only used to increase the response and ease of the lower notes but combined with the strap-ring position it helps the instrument feel correctly balanced.

Finally, Yamaha have added a peg design. The peg itself is not included with the YBS-62 model but it can be purchased separately giving players the option if they want it or not.

In summary this is a great new upgrade from the old YBS-62 model which had been in service for many years. The new YBS-62 feels supremely balanced physically and in tone. Incredibly they've made a legendary model even more impressive.
