Description

Ideal for the most demanding jazz saxophonist.

The YSS-82Z captures the essence of those treasured classic saxes of the past, while adding state-of-the-art tuning and ergonomics.

Description

Yamaha Custom series saxophones are designed with some of the greatest players in the world and hand built by the cream of Yamaha's expert craftsman. Meticulously developed from the finest materials and built with innovative features, Yamaha Custom saxophones provide the rich sounds and expressive feel to elevate the performance level of even the best saxophonists.

A revelation for the modern day saxophone player.

Distinctive designs offer players beautiful tonal colours. The new Custom Z soprano models are reminiscent of vintage Yamaha soprano saxophone designs. Made of a special lighter weight brass alloy with a "single piece" body construction so there is no neck join to compromise resonance. The angled neck changes the playing position and creates a small amount of extra air resistance - both features preferred by some players.

Black lacquer is thicker than gold lacquer giving this soprano a slightly darker tone to match it's looks.

Review

This is an incredible new instrument from Yamaha - this sax instantly wows with a very dynamic and broad tone. I finally feel that Yamaha have produced a soprano that sits among the best within the market. The more you take time to play this the more tonal possibilities you discover. It strikes me more as a horn to work for Jazz rather than Classical styles, so if this is your thing I would definitely put this on your hit-list of saxes to try. Jim Cheek (Sax.co.uk)
