My Favorite Tenor on Earth

By Sean from MD on 12/21/2012 6:33:42 PM

I originally intended to get a Selmer Paris SA80-SII Jubilee tenor. Even so, I spent a day trying ten world-class saxophones, including all four Selmers and both Yamaha Customs. I was astonished when I liked the Yamaha Custom EX more than that SII. The Yamaha Customs sound beautiful and consistent throughout the range; shift right into the altissimo without trouble; and their keys are comfortable, fluid, and quiet (too much so on the Z). As my salesman described it, "Yamaha's keys are like butter." I was also able to adjust the F-fork altissimo key to my preferences without making any redneck-style modifications to it, as I would have on the Selmers. The Yamahas also played perfectly right out of the box. No leaks, no loose keys or shifted springs, nothing at all wrong with them. (The Selmers had been serviced, but I unpackaged the Yamahas myself.) More than anything else, though, I got an EX because was simply fun to play. It just feels right to me. I look forward to getting an alto. If you're looking to buy a pro sax, you obviously can't go just on reviews, you have to try them. That being said, you'd be a fool not to include the Yamaha Custom EX (and Z) in your quest to find your sax.
