Get Legendary Tone Quality With The Yamaha YAS-82ZIIS Custom Z Eb Alto Saxophone - Black Lacquer
On the 10th Anniversary of their introduction, the Custom Z saxophones have been reexamined from neck to bell. They now offer the ultimate combination of expressiveness, response and control while staying true to their free-spirited origins. Since the Custom Z was developed in 2003, the technology, craftsmanship and specifications of the Custom Z series have continued to improve to fulfill the needs of the highest level musicians.

- V1 neck - 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 low 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.
