For sale a hardly used Yamaha YTS32 purple logo tenor sax.
The photos don’t do it justice, only blemish a slight dent on the bell lip, neck is perfect, lacquer is 99.9%. No lacquer wear anywhere!
Included in the sale, original Yamaha: 4c mouthpiece, lig and cap, case, sling, cork grease, yellow cloth, instructions booklet. Effectively the complete Yamaha kit you would have got if you bought it new in 198something! Viewing and local pickup is encouraged.

Also forgot to mention, for those who don't know, the "purple logo" saxes were the first batch of the Yamaha 23/32/62 run, produced in the 1980s. Obviously made in Japan, these are considered to be the most consistent series of those models.
The YTS 32 is the "intermediate" model (equivalent to the current YTS480 costing around £1800) and is said to be a YTS 62 without the bell engraving and the adjustable thumb hook.

Any questions, just send me a PM. I live near M25 Jct9 if you wish to view/try. IMG_4482.JPG IMG_4483.JPG

I’m sorry; I misread your ad. I thought it was a 62, not 32. Please ignore my post. It was a 62 I was specifically looking for.

I am so curious about these horns and if it were state side I'd consider it. Good luck with sale.

Hi Norm, not a problem, however you would have to spend quite a bit more for essentially the same sax without some frills. In this condition, I guess a purple logo 62 would probably set you back between £1500 and £1800.

Thanks for this. Really appreciated. I know that it’s a bit foolish to pay the extra for just a few extra frills, just as you say, but I have a hankering to match up my alto and tenor. I have a long-serving yts25 which is only a student entry model, but it still plays brilliantly. So what I’m proposing makes even less sense! Especially as I would have to sell it with the greatest regret, to help pay for a yts62.
