Discover why many of the worlds top musicians, including Phil Woods, are switching to the new Yamaha Custom Z Series. Combining the sound and response of existing Yamaha saxophones, Yamaha technicians have created a horn whose projection and sweet tone will blow away jazz musicians while classical players will be enamored by the control that the Z offers at all dynamic levels. Players of all styles will find that this horn can do it all! This is a modern sax that actually captures the sound and feel of those treasured classic saxes of the past - while adding state-of-the-art intonation and mechanism. Based on the scale of the classic '62' models, the new Custom Z saxes 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 you a huge dynamic range for as much - or as little - sound as you want. The Custom G1 neck helps produce a quick and agile response, while key action and placement feel just right. You can create whatever style tone you're after, from vintage to contemporary, and there's no need to sacriface comfort for sound.

Features:

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 color. More elaborate with finer detail, the new engraving design offers delicate beauty.

Metal Resonators: Domed 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.

V1 neck: The wide bore taper of the V1 neck provides offers a free-blowing feel and the greatest possible flexibility. This combination of features allows the player the ultimate level of tonal expression.

Improved Low B-C# connection: An improved mechanism from low B to C# ensures a proper seal for these notes which promotes a clear response throughout 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.

Octave key: The octave key has a unique new ball joint design for smooter, quicker action.

Left-hand seesaw key: The left hand seesaw key has been redesigned to facilitate playability as well as feel more comfortable.

Bell brace: The bell/body brace features two-point contact for enhanced projection and a free-blowing response.

Neck strap ring: The neck strap ring is oversize to accommodate a variety of hook sizes.

Case: The 82Z saxophones come in slim, lightweight cases which provide excellent protection. A convenient shoulder strap is also included.

Available in:
- YAS-82ZII Gold Lacquer

Cosmo Music's Quality Assurance:

Wind Instruments

  1. Unpack instrument removing all corks used to stabilize keys during shipment.
  2. Leave the instrument to allow the pads to "relax".
  3. A visual inspection is done to ensure the finish is at factory standards.
  4. Lubricate corks with factory approved grease.
  5. Check and adjust the fit of components to ensure a firm, but not excessive pressure is needed to assemble; out of the box many corks are too tight and the player could easily cause damage to parts by having to apply too much pressure.
  6. Inspect the key action.
  7. Check pad coverage and adjust where necessary.
  8. Check all key combinations for proper adjustment.
  9. Play-test each instrument throughout its entire range to confirm all adjustments are correct.
  10. All instruments are played with the technician's own mouthpiece or head joint, unless it is not appropriate (in the case in which the mouthpiece or headjoint is unique to the instrument, they are thoroughly cleaned after play-testing).
  11. The case is checked for proper fit.
  12. Factory supplied accessories are inspected to ensure all are present.
  13. Large saxophone keys may be refitted with shipping corks to increase stability for transit.
  14. The instrument is repacked as it was received.
  15. Technician signs the tag to confirm that all details have been completed.
