This is a magical, amazing instrument. It is always in tune. I'm an amateur, but I can make it sound like a flute, clarinet or trumpet. It can sound like Kenny G one minute and raw the next. Playing this can be a spiritual experience. I tried out this horn with a Yanigasawa custom model. The Yani was easier to play and had a nicer case and was cheaper, but this had (and still does) the wonderful tone. I usually play it with a metal Otto Link 6 and the lig that came with that mouthpiece, but my Jodyjazz rubber 6 is also great with it.
I just started playing the Soprano Saxophone in July 2007 and started with a beginner brand. Finding that I was in love with the sound of the Soprano Saxophone, I upgraded to the Custom 875EX Yamaha in October 2007 and even my teacher, who is a real professional, is astounded at the sound of this horn. It is easy to play and has a wonderful appearance, in addition to the super quality construction. It ships in a leather case that is equally as nice and easy to handle as the instrument. The Yamaha Custom 875EX is the finest quality instrument I have ever purchased. I am now playing Kenny G numbers on it and getting that same fabulous sound. I recently compared it to a Selmer Series III and it sounds much better than that horn. With its own mouthpiece and a Vandoren Optimum Ligature and Rico Hemke reeds, this horn is warm, controllable, and everything a saxophone should sound like.
This horn is LIGHTS OUT! It has such a great, dynamic, multipurpose sound that you can use it in everything from classical ballads all the way to the most rippin? run you've ever played in a HOT Latin piece. It dares you to even try to play out of tune. The clear lacquer has such a warm, rich sound however it can play bright when you need it to. The keys are perfectly situated for easy runs and they are light as feathers. I tried out 6 different sops before I bought this one, i.e. Selmer S80, Yanagisawa S990, Yanagisawa S991, Yamaha YSS-475, Yamaha YSS-675, and Yamaha YSS-82Z. The Yamaha YSS-875EX played the best........right out of the box. One conflict I ran into when buying was that the Yamaha YSS-675 played extremely similar....HOWEVER with the YSS-675 being a mere 300 dollars less, it just made sense to go with the YSS-875EX to get the newest innovation of Yamaha. Innovation of the Custom series meets (the) hands of innovative musicians.
I bought one of these a few months back and have been very pleased with it. Great classical horn. I put this up against the top competitor (the Selmer series III) and they were really close. More of trade-offs than on being better than the other. I found the Yamaha to be less honky and the tone was more consistent in all the registers. But the series III had better intonation and the high range was a little easier to get out. Its all in what you are looking for, but this is one of the best sopranos on the market today.
This soprano is AMAZING. This is my first soprano, and the moment I played it, out of the box, it was beautiful!!! It came with a reed and everything. Surprisingly, the finger layout, as well as the feel of the horn is strangely like my Yamaha tenor; YTS-52. The intonation is way beyond anything I?ve ever heard before. It?s sweet, yet somewhat focused (with the original mouthpiece; I use a Rousseau 4R for classical, and it sounds a lot different). The only thing that I've noticed is that the tuning on mid and high C# is flat, but I?m pretty sure it?s me. Also, all notes (including high D, D#, E, E#, F, F#) are extremely flawless. F# can be a bit troublesome at times, but it?s right on most of the time. I'm not sure what it is, but there is something about a Yamaha that separates it from the other brands. If you?re in need of a great, yet inexpensive horn, then go for Yamaha. I would say that they are freakishly consistent horns (from a YTS-52  to a YSS-875). If you have any questions, email, would be best.
Best soprano I've played. Clear tone and intonation throughout the range of the instrument. Great, clear altissimo. High-g model is nice but not a necessity.
I went to buy a new soprano and tried Selmer 52, 51, not impressed, tried a Yani played very nice. When I tried the YSS875EZ it was hands down I was buying this horn. The horn was not even set-up yet and it played with so much ease, pure vibrant sounding horn.
This sax is amazing. I want to advise...if you're thinking about saving bucks and getting the YSS-675, think again! I tried both horns and unlike the other reviewer, found a huge difference in response and tone. This horn combines effortless response with a stunning tone. Also, don't base your judgment on the mouthpiece it comes with. You need to put a pro mouthpiece on it to really see what it is capable of. I found the bundled mouthpiece makes it sound winy. Build quality is good. A perfect soprano sax.
