The most sophisticated sax there is…
Improved versions of that proven classic the Custom 875, the EX saxes are the result of decades of painstaking research and trials involving some of the world’s greatest saxophonists. They feature a smooth response and a deep, refined sound full of rich colours. They also feature a solid feel with quick and nimble action, a wide dynamic range, stunning projection, and an authoritative tone with a beautifully defined total core. You will find that the depth and smoothness of their sound is simply incredible, and you will also find that these horns are very flexible, at home in any kind of music. The size and shape of the key buttons have been changed for a better ‘feel’, while the new Custom necks enhance tonal resonance and give a quicker, more comfortable response. And the saxes feature a two-point bell brace for better efficiency, so you don’t have to work as hard to sound great.
The EX alto G1 neck is handmade and offer highly accurate intonation with an improved response.
The octave key has a unique new ball joint design for smoother, quicker action. The new neck receiver improves the tonal resonance.
