OVERVIEW

Distinctive designs offer players beautiful tonal colors.

he Custom Z soprano models are reminiscent of vintage Yamaha soprano saxophone designs. Based on the scale and design of the classic '62' models, Custom Z saxes have bodies that are made of a special brass alloy for lighter weight, a great playing 'feel', and the kind of tonal flexibility you've always dreamed of. The Z plays evenly in all ranges, and gives the player a huge dynamic range for as much - or as little - sound as you want.

Available in four finishes: gold baked epoxy lacquer (YSS-82ZR); silver-plated (YSS-82ZRS); black lacquer (YSS-82ZRB); un-lacquered (YDD-82ZRU). Each finish offers players a unique tonal color. Note: On un-lacquered models, the finish will be polished upon arrival and gradually morph over time to resemble the picture shown here. Rate of change and eventual finish will vary based on the player, amount of use, and environment the horn is stored in.

The Custom Z saxes have unparalleled tonal flexibility for confident performance in all styles of music, and there's no need to sacrifice comfort for sound.

Key post rib plate has solid feel and enhances resonance

Comments about Yamaha Custom YSS-82Z Series Professional Soprano Saxophone with Curved Neck:

I did not buy YSS-82Z with a curved neck on wwbw as I bought a like new used horn, but since this is where I do the majority of my purchases I wanted to post here so that I could help inform buyers of this horn. First off, if you have ever played a Yamaha brand saxophone you will find that the key work and action is similar between the models. There are slight differences in each level of horn (ie, 26, 52, 62, and custom). I have gotten out of my gear happy mindset and have settled on standards in terms of equipment. This horn comes with a custom mouthpiece which I did not use. I used to vary widely on mouthpieces until I came to my senses and settled on Selmer mouthpieces for all of my horns with the exception of my sopranino which I use a Vandoren piece. So my feedback is straight from a standard S80 C* mouthpiece with a Selmer single screw ligature.

This horn has unbelievable key action. Every key is fluid and plays with a great response. Some horns are a little light on the key work while others are very heavy. This horn plays with ease and should please most playstyles. The sound is amazing and all registers are easy to hit. one of the hardest things when going to a soprano or higher is the ability to play in tune at the higher registers. I found that this horn plays exceptionally well. I also have an Allora Paris horn that I really like, but it struggles to stay in tune after a few years of use and even after taking into the shop for an overhaul. This horn plays fantastically every time. While I feel that the Yamaha horn is generic on the aesthetics, I find that this does not matter a bit in terms of playability. This horn is top notch and should fit into any genre you need it for. I hate reviews stating that this makes me sound like #### or another horn player. I state this horn helps me play to the best of my ability given my own talents. I find that using this horn allows me to express who I am because the technical aspect is perfect.
