Find Your Voice With The YAS-875EXII Professional Alto Saxophone - Silver Plated
The new Yamaha YAS-875EXII Custom EX alto saxophone marks a huge step forward for saxophone design. Offering players a wealth of new musical possibilities, the new Custom EX has been designed in collaboration with some of the world’s most talented saxophonists, including Nobuya Sugawa, Jean-Yves Fourmeau and Otis Murphy. Their invaluable input has meant that Yamaha has been able to create an instrument that sounds great, is comfortable to play, and that constantly evolves with the player.
- Refined, Elegant Sound - An evolved flagship model with stress-free key work and low-register playability, the Custom EX gives the performer full expressive freedom.
- Brand New Key Layout - The new Custom EX alto saxophone has had a complete overhaul of the key layout. Changes to the Front F key shape and mechanism, a position change of the left-hand palm keys, left-hand table keys, right-hand side keys and right-hand pinky keys offers a smoother playing experience giving players more confidence when performing. With the new, more ergonomic key layout design, the new Custom EX gives players unrivaled comfort and makes hand adjustment easy and almost stress free.
- Easy to Play in the Lower Register - During the design process, Yamaha experimented with new methods for producing the bottom bow of the instrument. The diameter of the low C and D tone holes has been reduced and Yamaha’s unique acoustic annealing process has been applied to enhance low note playability. Resistance is consistent throughout the instrument’s range.
- Outstanding Intonation - Yamaha saxophones are renowned for their fantastic intonation and the new Custom EX is no different. Yamaha have optimized the tone hole sizes and positions which has meant that the intonation on the new instrument is better than ever.
- Elegant Engraving Design - The Custom EX saxophone features a new ‘lily’ engraving design which is hand engraved on every instrument.
- Redesigned Ebonite Mouthpiece - The Custom EX saxophone is complemented by Yamaha’s redesigned Custom ebonite mouthpiece. The baffle, chamber, and other areas of internal design have been re-designed for greater projection as well as soft, beautiful tonality. The shape of the tip has been modified for increased comfort and easier embouchure control.
- Semi-hard Case - The semi-hard rucksack style case supplied with the new Custom EX is made from a stylish durable material.
