YAMAHA YBS-52

Great sound and durable construction make this model a band director favorite.

Tilting style low Bb spatula keys

The position, height, angle and shape of the left-hand pinky keys have all been carefully redesigned to provide extraordinary comfort and quick response.

Three-vent octave mechanism

A feature exclusive to Yamaha saxophones, the three-vent octave mechanism eliminates fuzzy, unclear tones when playing G, G# and A with the octave key.

Adjustable thumb rest

All Yamaha saxophones feature an adjustable thumb rest to allow for precise and comfortable hand and fingering position.

Refined key shape and dimension

Yamaha saxophone keys are not simply shaped and positioned according to mechanical necessity; the entire system is designed from the player’s perspective, with emphasis on comfort, speed, and overall playability. The natural feel of the keys eliminates the need to adapt to an unnatural or uncomfortable key layout.

Adjustable key guard felts

Optimum intonation and venting

Tapered pivot screws

Precise adjustment and smooth key action
