Great sound and durable construction make this model a band director favourite. Yamaha intermediate saxophones feature an epoxy lacquer finish on body and keys. The refined tone hole dimension and placement and the adjustable key guard felts allow for superior intonation. The front F and high F# key allow more alternate fingerings and a true high F#. Tapered pivot screws provide smoother key action and a custom style low Bb spatula facilitates technique. An adjustable thumb rest increases player comfort.

  • Tilting style low Bb spatula keys: The position, height, angle and shape of the left-hand pinky keys have all been carefully redesigned to provide extraordinary comfort and quick response.
  • Three-vent octave mechanism: A feature exclusive to Yamaha saxophones, the three-vent octave mechanism eliminates fuzzy, unclear tones when playing G, G# and A with the octave key.
  • Adjustable thumb rest: All Yamaha saxophones feature an adjustable thumb rest to allow for precise and comfortable hand and fingering position.
  • Refined key shape and dimension: Yamaha saxophone keys are not simply shaped and positioned according to mechanical necessity; the entire system is designed from the player's perspective, with emphasis on comfort, speed, and overall playability. The natural feel of the keys eliminates the need to adapt to an unnatural or uncomfortable key layout.
  • Adjustable key guard felts: Optimum intonation and venting.
  • Tapered pivot screws: Precise adjustment and smooth key action.

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.
