The Yamaha YAS82ZULWOF02 Custom Z Alto Saxophone highlights a stunning unlacquered gold body that sounds and feels as professional as it looks. Featuring a powerful sound and the ability to play fast passages without difficulty, the YAS82ZULWOF02 is designed to meet your highest expectations. Unlike many professional saxophones, the Custom Z does not have the top F# key. The absence of the top F# key enables the instrument to produce a greater and more efficient response and greater tonal characteristics. The new custom Z saxophones are made of a special brass alloy which makes it lighter and gives all the timbres you would ever dream of having. This model comes with a lightweight hard case and mouthpiece.

With a powerful sound and highly regarded mechanisms the YAS82ZULWOF02 allows fast passages to be played without difficulty. The Z is crafted so it meets players highest expectations. This new model has been re-examined from the neck to the bell and is now equipped with a one-piece bell for increased resonance, and the popular V1 neck for optimal combination of response and control. The Z plays evenly in all ranges and gives a huge dynamic range for as much - or as little - sound as the player wants. The Custom V1 neck helps produce a quick and agile response, whilst key action and placement feel just right. Players can create whatever style of tone they're after, from vintage to contemporary.
The Yamaha YAS82ZULWOF02 Custom Z Saxophone comes without the high F# key, providing a greater and more efficient response. It also provides a better resonance and deeper timbre.
The YAS82ZULWOF02 has a one-piece bell which features an improved low end response, now capable of producing a wider palette of tonal colour. This bell comes with an elaborate hand engraved design which looks much more delicate than previous models. The metal resonators produce an outstanding response and provides a much wider dynamic range, therefore the entire range of the instrument now has a clearer pronunciation, providing effortless playability all around. The highly regarded wide bore taper of the V1 neck produces a free-blowing feel and great flexibility. The YAS82ZULWOF02 features an improved mechanism from low B-C# connection. This ensures the consistent closing of the low C# key and introduces a clearer response from notes in the lower range of the instrument. Better response and a more cohesive tone are the result of a lighter thumb rest and hook base design.
The YAS82ZULWOF02 comes with a lightweight hard case featuring shoulder straps that make transportation of the instrument extremely manageable. Also included in this pack is a AS4CM mouthpiece. With everything that you need included in this affordable package you can get started straight from the box.
