Yamaha YAS82ZUL Alto Saxophone
Instrument condition: New
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 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.
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 lower 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.
