OVERVIEW

The gold standard reimagined.

On the 10th Anniversary of their introduction, the Custom Z saxophones have been reexamined from neck to bell. They now offer the ultimate combination of expressiveness, response and control while staying true to their free-spirited origins. Since the Custom Z was developed in 2003, the technology, craftsmanship and specifications of the Custom Z series have continued to improve to fulfill the needs of the highest level musicians. The Yamaha YAS-82ZII alto saxophone is a preferred horn for the working professional. The list of new features is impressive.

One-piece bell with new engraving
In the tradition of those coveted vintage saxophones, the 82Z now comes equipped with a one-piece bell! This feature drastically improves low end response and offers the player a wider palette of tonal color. More elaborate with finer detail, the new engraving design offers delicate beauty.

Metal Resonators
Domed metal resonators offer an outstanding response and deliver a wider dynamic range. The entire range of the instrument has a clearer pronunciation, providing effortless playability all around.

V1 neck
The wide bore taper of the V1 neck provides offers a free-blowing feel and the greatest possible flexibility. This combination of features allows the player the ultimate level of tonal expression.

Improved Low B-C# connection
An improved mechanism from low B to C# ensures a proper seal for these notes which promotes a clear response throughout the low range of the instrument.Lighter thumb hook and thumb rest basesLighter thumb rest and thumb hook base designs produce better response and a more cohesive tone.

Adjustable Front F key
An adjustable Front F mechanism gives the player the freedom to find the optimal level of resistance in the altissimo range.

Z Style Case
The 82Z saxophones come in slim, lightweight cases which provide excellent protection. A convenient shoulder strap is also included.

NOTE: On un-lacquered models, the finish will be polished upon arrival and gradually morph over time. Rate of change and eventual finish will vary based on the player, amount of use, and environment the horn is stored in.

FEATURES
  • Free and open tone with complex color
  • Lightning fast action
  • Beautiful design and engraving
  • Market tested and reliable
  • Hard case included

Order today and experience the Z difference that thousands of players already understand.
