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.

Selmer 1998 ‘Super Action 80 – Series III’ Bb Soprano, #572,xxx (Archived)

SOLD - A like-new condition sax that is priced lower than all other "new" models! It was originally bought by a clarinet player: "The sax has about 10 hours of playing time on it, and has lived in the closet." He and I agree; it's time to find the next musician to love this instrument. There's not much to say about these saxes; they sell themselves. It comes with a Selmer C* rubber mouthpiece and two necks, curved and straight.
CASE: Original, in excellent condition. Black felt wrap-bag included.
PADS: Original, like-new, metal resonators. Item #:WWS0W0.451.7-DSConsignment

Other: ‘York’ Soprano, Rubber, Large Chamber (WWS Reface) – 0.056″ (Archived)

SOLD - Large Chamber - Recommended for vintage sopranos! Rubber, arrived with an original tip that was too closed to enjoy.  LARGE CHAMBER, and a slight rollover baffle from the reface. The look of the mouthpiece reminds me of some older Buescher 'pickles' with the ring-lip at the shank; but I am not certain on that. The photos are prior to the finished reface and you are free to help guide to with how much baffle you'd like left in there.
