Already a legend, the “62” attained the love and respect of a wide range of players for its highly reliable performance and outstanding quality. It owes its success to a group of dedicated designers with great vision, and highly skilled craftsmen performing their work with an extraordinary level of devotion, perfection, and passion.
Based on the scale of the classic ‘62 models, the new Custom Z Saxophones have bodies that are made of a special brass alloy for lighter weight, a great playing feel and tonal flexibility. The Z plays evenly in all ranges, and provides a huge dynamic. The advanced neck design helps produce a quick and agile response while key action and placement feel just right.
The one-piece neck without any joints between the body and the neck provides a free and even response. YSS-82Z is available with a straight neck, while YSS-82ZR has a curved neck.
Key designs are more comfortable and ergonomic.
Hand engraving style adds beauty and style.
ADJUSTABLE THUMB HOOK
All Yamaha saxophones feature an adjustable thumb hook to allow for precise and comfortable hand and fingering position.
