      OVERVIEW

      Combining quick response with a warm tone color.

      Recognizing the versatile needs of saxophonists today, Yamaha developed a saxophone capable of performing both classical and jazz. The result is the YTS-82Z Custom Z Tenor Saxophone. Jazz sax players will be knocked out by the projection, sweet tone and availability of an unlacquered model. Classical saxophonists will be enamored of the control over their tone from pianissimo to fortissimo.

      Yamaha' YTS-82Z offers many improvements to Yamaha saxophones of the past, while maintaining a consistent build quality and free-blowing nature. The body of the Custom Z is made from a special brass alloy offering a lighter weight and a tonal flexibility only dreamt of until now. The Custom G1 neck helps produce a quick and agile response, while key action and placement just feel right. The YTS-82Z captures the sound of popular vintage saxophones of the past, but adds the comfort of modern mechanisms and playability.


      Body design
      The 82Z features a two-piece hydro-formed bell. The body, bell, and bow are annealed during production to make this horn more responsive and less resistant.
      Mechanisms
      The new mechanisms on the 82Z allow for faster action and easier repair.
      Blue steel springs
      The 82Z comes with blue steel springs for faster, more sensitive key response and higher resiliency.
      New case
      The new 82Z comes equipped with a newly designed lightweight case that has a shoulder strap.
      Engraving
      Eye catching engraving will give you the look of a custom horn.

      Comments about Yamaha YTS-82Z Custom Tenor Saxophone:

      I pick this horn up at my local music store. I tried it as just a "what ever" try, but i was amazed!. It played just as good as my VI. Its tone was beautiful, the action is quick, it played great in all ranges, and it has the looks too. Overall I use this horn on more gigs than my VI I got the black and i wouldn't trade it for anything

      YTS-82Z

      By crazymusicdude

      Comments about Yamaha YTS-82Z Custom Tenor Saxophone:

      I've hade this sax for about four months and the moment I first played it I was blown away with its tone and how responsive it was. The only down side of this horn is its price but it's worth every penny.
