Hi,
Do YOU, in your opinion, think there is much difference between the 82 series and the 62 series?

the keywork and body tube, bow and bell are the same except for the alloy. the 82 has real mother of pearl key touches and does have a warmer sound. especially at the low and high extremes of the horn. the 82 Z has a darker lacquer and two piece hydroformed bell. the body, neck,bell and bow have been annealed. the G-1 neck is handmade.french brass body, bell, bow and neck.yellow brass keywork.much more engraving on bell.

on the 62 the body, neck and bell have been annealed. polyester keytouches. G-1 neck is machine made. Yellow brass throughout.slightly different rod screws.

I sold my 62 and bought an 82Z and really can tell the difference in sound quality.the other sax players in the band could tell the sound difference before I told them i had a new sax.
