Yamaha YTS-82Z Custom Tenor Saxophone
One of the most exciting things to happen in the sax world recently is the introduction of the Yamaha YTS-82Z. It is a modern sax that captures the sound and feel of those treasured classic saxes of the past while adding state-of-the-art intonation and mechanism.
Based on the scale of the classic '62' models, the new Custom Z saxes have bodies that are made of a special brass alloy for lighter weight, a great playing feel, and the kind of tonal flexibility you've always dreamed of. The Z plays evenly in all ranges, and gives you a huge dynamic range for as much - or as little - sound as you want. The Custom G1 neck helps produce a quick and agile response, while key action and placement feel just right. You can create whatever style tone you're after, from vintage to contemporary, and there's no need to sacriface comfort for sound.
Recognizing the versatile needs of saxophonists today, Yamaha has developed a saxophone capable of performing both classical and jazz. Jazz sax players will be knocked out by the projection, sweet tone and availability of an unlacquered model. Classical saxophonists will be enamored of the control over their tone from pianissimo to fortissimo.
Yamaha’s YTS-82Z offers many improvements to Yamaha saxophones of the past, while maintaining a consistent build quality and free-blowing nature. The body of the Custom Z is made from a special brass alloy offering a lighter weight and a tonal flexibility only dreamt of until now. The Custom G1 neck helps produce a quick and agile response, while key action and placement just feel right. The YTS-82Z captures the sound of popular vintage saxophones of the past, but adds the comfort of modern mechanisms and playability.
