Yamaha 1989 ‘YSS-62ii “Purple Logo”‘ Bb Soprano, Series II #10,8xx (Archived)

SOLD - Highly sought after "purple logo" YSS-62 - Serial # 10,8xx, original lacquer in good, used, condition. Keyed to high F# also. It's in relatively clean condition with the pictures telling the story; I'll note the upper pip either has an acid bleed or a light resolder. This sax was owned by an adult player and played/loved well. It arrived to WWS with the many of the original factory pads in it. It does decent right now to test and get a vibe on its tone and ergos - I like it. (This is the older, deeper tone from the "purple logo" era.)
REBUILD: (Included) - TBD - It will get a WWS Standard Rebuild included and be a sweet soprano for your collection and enjoyment. You can order it and help choose the setup. However, left to my own methods, I would do a similar setup as the factory original.
CASE: Original hard case.
This is a Consignment instrument, however, is being sold as a normal WWS inventory which will include a rebuild to your personal specifications.

Conn 1945 ’10M’ Bb Tenor, Silver #312k (Archived)

SOLD - silver Conn 10M, silver bell interior - A great era 10M seeking your love. This sax is in very good condition.
REBUILD/PADS: This sax was rebuilt by WWS in 2012 and played by a growing musician.  The setup was given our "Vintage Standard" to maintain the classic Conn sound. Also the bell interior was cleaned up and freshly silver plated at that time for the owner. The sax has a lot of life left in the pads and we can discuss that in further detail for your needs. We will look over the sax and it will leave WWS "playing excellent" for many more gigs.
CASE: original, vintage Conn case in Good/ok shape (totally functional and usable).
