YBS-62II – Yamaha 62II Bari Sax – 2nd Generation
Handmade in Japan
The Yamaha 62 bari sax has garnered the admiration and respect of a wide range of saxophonists for over 35 years. The new 2nd Generation Yamaha YBS-62II bari sax builds on this trusted platform with improvements to ergonomics, response & intonation. This new model keeps the outstanding playability and quality that artists have come to expect while innovating for the next generation and beyond!
2nd Generation 62 Bari Features
New Bell Design
The YBS-62II uses a slightly shorter bell to help improve response and intonation in all registers. The entire range of the instrument is improved by the slight decrease in weight and especially helps to center the notes in the lower range of the bari.
The new model features a key layout derived from the new Custom series bari sax. This improved ergonomic helps players of all levels feel more comfortable through the range of the bari.
Detachable Peg Option
The YBS-62II has integrated a floor peg receiver in to the bow of the bari sax. While the floor peg is not included (available as an accessory), adding this option for customers has been one of the most requested features on the new bari sax line. Customers who want the assistance of the floor peg can screw it in to the new receiver easily to help support the weight of the instrument.
The YBS-62II has added integrated wheels in to the classic Yamaha 62 case allowing for easier transportation of the instrument.
Professional Pad Setup
The 62II baritone uses the same high end Pisoni Pro pads used in the Custom Series bari sax! These pads are a firmer pad than traditional pads which improves the feel of the horn as well as the performance. Firmer pads absorb less acoustically and reflect out more. This improves response, projection and tone.
Yamaha Select Dealer
We are a Yamaha Select Dealer meaning that we make the commitment to stocking a large selection of Yamaha product for our customers to come in an test out. We know how to get the highest performance out of your new Yamaha 62 Bari Sax and are committed to providing you with only the best service! Why buy your 62 Bari from anywhere else?!
Every horn we send out to a customer is not released from us unless it has been completely setup in our shop first. This is because the setup on the horn is of the utmost importance! Sometimes, a saxophone (regardless of who the manufacturer) comes in needing 20 minutes of adjustments and then the very next one can require 2 hours! So if you were to get 5 of the same model right out of the box, they will all play different. This leads players to believe that they are “good” or “bad” saxes. The reality is that the one that was the best out of the 5 was likely the one that needed the least amount of work and the “bad” sax was the one that needed 2 hours worth of adjustments!
Once the same 5 saxophones are properly regulated and adjusted to perfection, they become near identical saxophones. Even the pickiest of players would be challenged to pick a true “favorite” horn. However, since most stores do not or even can not perform this setup, the player never knows this and is simply relying on the luck of the draw. This is why we perform our setup (in our www.SaxophoneRepairs.com ProShop) on them before delivering your new sax to you. You trust us with your purchase and we want to make sure that you are rewarded by giving you your ideal saxophone setup flawlessly!
