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.
