Yamaha YTS-62 purple logo versus YTS-32 purple logo

Deze week kreeg MROsaxofoons een Yamaha YTS-62 purple logo binnen voor reparatie. Dat was een prima gelegenheid om de onderlinge verschillen tussen de YTS-62 en de YTS-32 te bepalen. Op de diverse internet-forums is veel info te vinden, en er wordt zelfs beweerd dat de YTS-32 een 'uitgeklede' versie is van de YTS-62. Is dit inderdaad zo?...... Tijd om beide saxen op de werkbank te leggen en ze nauwkeurig te inspecteren!

Cantarini 880 silver plated tenor saxophone

MROsaxofoons just finished the complete overhaul of this completely unknown handmade sax. It's an absolute beauty and it plays like a dream. There's hardly any info available on this brand, but I received some information by mail. Cantarini seems to be an early Chinese manufacturer, the horn dates to about 1965. Cantarini produces only a couple of these horns (alto and tenor), as well as trumpets and other instruments. All handmade and intended to compete with the major brands, such as Selmer. They costed about half of a Selmer sax, but with almost equal quality.

Yamaha YTS-32 purple logo

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.

Conn 28M Connstallation

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.....
