I jus finished a full maintenance check on a purple logo Yamaha YTS-32 tenor saxophone, and thought it might be a good idea share my thoughts on this horn. The Yamaha purple logo horns seem to be the best (from all series and types) and there's a real cult following on this. Why?...... Well : just try one and compare it with a regular sax from the same series. In this case I compared this YTS-32 (after the maintenance check) with an older YTS-62 (no purple logo) from a customer : there's hardly any difference in feel or sound.
Wow..... Probably the nicest example of the famous and rare 28M alto saxophone: the best saxophone ever produced by Conn (and probably the best alto ever). This one is in almost mint condition and it's really worth having a look at the pictures in the attachment, as this is a completely different saxophone design.....

Selmer serie 9 versus serie 9* clarinet :
Both the Selmer serie 9 and serie 9* are professional clarinets for the advanced player. They are not the same but there seems to be lots of confusion and incorrect info on these models.......
Here's some interesting stories about the Selmer serie 9 and Serie 9* clarinet I found on the internet :
