YAMAHA YTS-82 Z

All the versions of this article: [Deutsch] [English] [français]

This has to be one of the most exciting things to happen to the sax world in modern times. Finally a modern sax that actually 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. These horns literally ’have it all’.

Body design
