And an apology.....Savio not Salvio! Excuse me...
I do not agree. Especially because I inherited part of my ones. I think the Martin Collection of a friend of this forum much more awesome...Also Salvio you have possibly the best collection of saxophones on the forum...........unless someone can better it?
This is interesting - are you guys talking here about the logo on the octave key mechanism, or the (horrible) transfer printed logo across the bell? I have a low serial number YAS62 and I was guessing it was an early 80s Mark I but it does not have the logo across the bell (and it doesn't look as if it has been scratched off). any clues? ThanksSounds logical Griff, and sticking with 62s here - there are non purple logo Mk1s made around the same time ,
This is exactly what you need.Can you post a photo of the bell engraving and where the logo should be, plus the octave key logo and first two S/N digits? Have you asked Yamaha what year it is? I take it that it has the long "J" bell key guard?
Thanks to you and saxlicker for (hopefully) helping me. I am only being nosey; I love my alto and would just be interested in celebrating its birthday.Can you post a photo of the bell engraving and where the logo should be, plus the octave key logo and first two S/N digits? Have you asked Yamaha what year it is? I take it that it has the long "J" bell key guard?
Ah that makes sense. Thanks. So.... that makes it a Mark I between 1979 and.... 1991 (when I bought it...) ?
Thanks guys the folk at Yamaha were very helpful and asked for more pictures to try to date it. They confirmed that the logo had been rubbed off but couldn't date it more accurately than 'early 1980s'.He's already done that.... They said it wasn't in their database.
Ha that's a great idea!
