Ideal for the most demanding jazz saxophonist
The YSS-82ZS captures the essence of those treasured classic saxes of the past, while adding state-of-the-art tuning and ergonomics.
Yamaha Custom series saxophones are designed with some of the greatest players in the world and hand-built by the cream of Yamaha's expert craftsman. Meticulously developed from the finest materials and built with innovative features, Yamaha Custom saxophones provide the rich sounds and expressive feel to elevate the performance level of even the best saxophonists.
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. Made of a special lighter weight brass alloy with a "single piece" body construction so there is no neck join to compromise resonance.
The brass body is left unlacquered and plated with beautiful bright silver plating. The lack of lacquer does mean occasional cleaning with a silver cloth is required in order to maintain the finish. However, the added layer of resonant precious metal gives more projection and a wonderful extra dimension to the sound.

This is an incredible new instrument from Yamaha - this sax instantly wows with a very dynamic and broad tone. I finally feel that Yamaha have produced a soprano that sits among the best within the market. The more you take time to play this the more tonal possibilities you discover. It strikes me more as a horn to work for Jazz rather than Classical styles, so if this is your thing I would definitely put this on your hit-list of saxes to try..... Jim Cheek (Sax.co.uk)
These silver plated Custom saxes are Yamaha's best kept secret! The cream of the Yamaha crop as far as we and many of the Yamaha endorsees are concerned. Silver plating always gives you a little bit extra but it really is something extra special with these Custom models ....Phill Straker (Sax.co.uk)
Please note: Yamaha does not allow us to sell this saxophone to you if you live outside of the EU. We highly recommend browsing the exceptional range of Yanagisawa saxophones which are available for all international customers.
