Shipping Cost : Free
This instrument is brand new and carries the full manufacturer's warranty.
The Yamaha YAS-82ZII, commonly known as the Custom Z, underwent a neck-to-bell redesign in 2013 after the original Custom Z’s ten-year run. The redesigned Custom Z now offers the ultimate combination of expressiveness, response and control, while still staying true to its origins.
The concept for the YAS-82Z was to create an instrument with the tonal profile of the saxophones of the ‘50s and ‘60s, but with the mechanical precision of a modern horn. The YAS-82ZII expands on both parts of this idea, with improvements in its tonal scope as well as its mechanical ease.
The Custom Z has yellow brass key buttons with mother of pearl key touches, which adds to the instrument’s striking appearance and satisfying action. The wide bore taper of the V1 neck provides a free-blowing feel and the greatest possible flexibility. This combination of features allows the player the ultimate level of tonal expression.
The Yamaha YAS-82ZII features a two-point bell brace for better efficiency. Challenging passages suddenly become accessible with the Custom Z saxophone. A lighter thumb rest and thumb hook base design produce better response and steady control, and blue steel springs offer a fast, sensitive key response. It has an adjustable Front F key along with a high F# key and an adjustable thumb rest. The adjustable Front F gives the player the freedom to find the optimal level of resistance in the altissimo range.
