Although capable of playing in a variety of musical situations, the YTS875EX is best suited in classical environments. This is because of the special brass alloy that Yamaha uses which provides a deep and refined sound. The Yamaha custom saxophone has a quick and nimble action which is very quiet and smooth - a must have for studio work. With great tonal flexibility and a wide dynamic range, the YTS875EX has excellent projection thanks to the two-point bell/body brace that also offers a very free-blowing response. The octave key features a uniquely designed ball joint for a smoother and quicker action, which when combined with the new neck receiver improves the overall tonal resonance.
The new G3 neck is best tenor neck that Yamaha has ever made. The handmade design offers highly accurate intonation with an improved response over the previous G2. Similar to all Yamaha custom tenor saxes, the YTS875EX features a high F# key, an adjustable thumb rest, and a newly designed ergonomic key design. This custom model comes in a beautiful gold lacquer finish, which when combined with the gold lacquer keys and Mother of Pearl key tops, produces a truly professional looking instrument. The front of the saxophone features professional hand engraving on the bell for enhanced beauty and style.
The YTS875EX saxophone comes with a TS4CM mouthpiece which is sculpted out of quality ebonite. Ebonite is a high-quality rubber which creates a rich, resonant and deep tone which is warmer than metal mouthpieces. All of these mouthpieces are crafted by Yamaha's expert artisans to ensure consistent and superior quality. The shape of the tip has been modified for increased comfort and easier embouchure control. As well as the baffle, the chamber has been re-designed for greater projection as well as soft tonality. Also included is a deluxe case to protect the saxophone while not in use. This lightweight case includes a convenient shoulder strap allowing for easy transportation between musical events.
