... I'm a newbie on yamaha saxophones, especially 62 purple logo. I've two altos for trial, both are purple logos, but with different ornamentation on the tube scuffs (see pics).
Does anyone have any idea? Thanks.
The first picture is probably an earlier model. I have an early YAS62, with a larger RH thumbrest, mine has the pattern as your second picture, but has the locking screws coming from the back as in your first picture.
It might be a part left over from the YAS61 model?
yes that sounds really plausibel.
I've checked some photos of YAS61 ... and there is the ornamentation.
IMO it is a part left over from the 61er and have been used for some time for the next generation ... the YAS62.
