A revelation for the modern day saxophone player
Distinctive designs offer players beautiful tonal colours. The new Custom Z soprano models are reminiscent of vintage Yamaha soprano saxophone designs.
Based on the scale and design of the classic '62' models, Custom Z saxophones have bodies that are made of a special brass alloy for lighter weight, a great playing 'feel', and the kind of tonal flexibility you've always dreamed of. The Z plays evenly in all ranges, and gives the player a huge dynamic range for as much - or as little - sound as you want. The Custom Z saxes have unparalleled tonal flexibility for confident performance in all styles of music, and there's no need to sacrifice comfort for sound.
