I have a pristine Yamaha YAS62, ( the nicest I have owned and played),but need a tenor. I would like to swap with an appropriate cash adjustment if necessary. Willing to discuss any deal and will make a donation to Pete's fund as usual. YAS62-1.jpg YAS62-2.jpg YAS62-3.jpg YAS62-4.jpg YAS62-5.jpg

Nice horn Paul.

The northern hemisphere 62s appear to have red interiors for the cases where my two 62s tenor and alto have blue velvet interiors...although this model is bit younger than my "purple logo horns".

Somebody should snap this up...

Thanks, Greg.It looks great and blows beautifully and I am reluctant to part with it. If I don't get a decent trade I won't be sorry to keep it and go for a cheap tenor like the Academy Jerico. We will see! I wouldn't want to be without an alto.

Looks like there is no high F# - is that correct ?

There certainly is Rhys. All exactly as normal YAS 62 spec. She rolls effortlessly from bottom B-flat to top F-sharp- loud, bright, smooth and clear as a bell

Checked on eBay yesterday and the last sold fetched £1140. They really are nice.

A little too much for me as I have just bought another Martin that needs an overhaul. I am in two minds whether to sell my Freemont Excalibur Tenor (used twice!) - sourced via John Bilham in Norwich. If you get a chance to try one you would be very impresssed.

Good luck.

Yes,
unfortunately.
I'd like to sell or swap my Martin Committee III 150xxx tenor, but I'd like to have a purple logo 62..:-(
IMHO, Paul should mention if he wants a vintage or a new horn. (Or did I overlook something?)

Cheers,
Guenne

Got a Couesnon Monopole II available, and a Buffet SDA.

I'm assuming these are swap offers, but if you want to sell them here, please start a separate thread for each and be sure to follow the rules. Thanks.

Could be interested in either of these, but I would need pictures and some idea of the deal you are suggesting. An early response would be good as I need to either do a deal or simply go off and buy a tenor fairly soon.
All the best.....Paul

O.k.....looks as though there are no offers on this. I'll leave it for a few more days just in case. Actually, I played it this a.m. with a friend in my trio/duo, and really fell in love with it again! so, I'll put in a wanted add for a tenor and see what happens.

It was all a mistake. The sax is just too good to part with; it's a 'singer' and must stay with me! So I will withdraw it. However, my need for a tenor remains and my ad. for it is within the Yard Sale with the usual terms. Thanks everyone.
