So, I'm considering selling my 62, but I've decided to get it repadded first. I took this horn to my local repair shop, which, by the way is quit a site for soar eyes. This repair shop (called A&G music repair in oakland, ca) is state of the art, and has a full staff of about 10-15 people. It's really refreshing to see them live and running with a large facility dedicated to repair.

Anyway, they told me the horns pads are basically shot from normal use. I guess I've played the heck out of this horn! The horn still looks the same from the day I bought it, with the original case and all. After a $250 fresh repad job, how much do you think one should ask for a yamaha 62 alto in this condition?

is the Yamaha logo silkscreened on or engraved on the bell? If it's silk screened on maybe slightly more then if it is engraved IMO. Maybe 1200.00-1500.00 something like that if it's in good shape. I don't buy a lot of saxes but I got a YTS-62 that has the engraved bell logo for 1500.00. Hope this helped a little.
