The evolution of the Yamaha Custom Z continues.
With a powerful sound and the ability to play fast passages without difficulty, the Z is crafted to meet your highest expectations.
They have been reconsidered from from top to bottom and are now equipped with a one-piece bell for increased resonance and the highly regarded V1 neck for the optimal combination of response and control.
One-piece bell with new engraving
In the tradition of those coveted vintage saxophones, the 82Z now comes equipped with a one-piece bell. This feature drastically improves low end response and offers the player a wider palette of tonal colour. More elaborate with finer detail, the new engraving design offers delicate beauty.
Metal resonator pads
The metal resonators offer an outstanding response and deliver a wider dynamic range. The entire range of the instrument has a clearer pronunciation, providing effortless playability all around.
The wide bore taper of the V1 neck provides a free-blowing feel and the greatest possible flexibility.
Improved Low B-C# connection
An improved mechanism from low B-C# connection ensures the consistent closing of the low C# key and promotes a clear response from notes in the low range of the instrument.
Lighter thumb hook and thumb rest bases
Lighter thumb rest and thumb hook base designs produce better response and a more cohesive tone.
Adjustable Front F key
An adjustable Front F mechanism gives the player the freedom to find the optimal level of resistance in the altissimo range.
The 82Z is supplied in a high quality lightweight case with a shoulder strap.
