The Yamaha YTS-875EX professional tenor saxophone, known as the Custom EX, has a rich and stately timbre with easy intonation that is perfect for sectional blending. Its stress-free keywork and low-register playability make it an outstanding horn for jazz soloing, and a solid feel with quick and nimble action make it a great horn for any working musician. At home with all kinds of music, the YTS-875EX is a perfect canvas for painting your own tonal colors. While the palette it offers is defined by the player, most describe its sound and feel as free-blowing and slightly dark. It has a wide dynamic range, excellent projection and an authoritative sound with a well-defined core.
The Custom EX is an update of the Yamaha Custom 875, an instrument that became a favorite of professionals everywhere. The 875EX replaced the 875 Custom in 2003. It is constructed of imported French brass, a lighter alloy than the annealed yellow brass used in the YTS-62III. The 875EX features fully ribbed construction, with wider ribs than either of its sister horns, making for deeper vibrations and a darker tonal profile. It has a hand-hammered body, bell and neck. Its new engraving design is likewise done by hand, instilling a great uniqueness into each instrument.
Relative to the original Yamaha Custom tenor, the size and shape of the Custom EX yellow brass key buttons have been changed to what for many is a better feel. The key buttons themselves are best-quality mother of pearl, which adds to the instrument’s striking appearance and satisfying action. The new Yamaha TE1 neck design enhances the horn’s tonal resonance, and offers a quicker, more comfortable response. The neck’s core tone is compact with great projection.
The Yamaha YTS-875EX has an even bore, which contributes to its free-blowing feel and its two-point bell brace makes for better efficiency. Hard steel springs offer a fast, sensitive key response. Many players at Woodwind & Brasswind are pleasantly surprised at how accessible challenging passages suddenly become with the Custom EX saxophone.
Multiple key posts are integrated into a single plate, which lends the horn moderate resistance while at the same time delivering a solid core with deep tone color. It has an adjustable Front F key along with a high F# key and an adjustable thumb rest. The adjustable Front F gives the player the freedom to find the optimal level of resistance in the altissimo range. Yamaha’s design and manufacturing experience and expertise are the pinnacle of modern musical instrument manufacturing, and all of it is present in the YTS-875EX.
The Yamaha YTS-875EX comes in a slim, lightweight case with backpack straps and a shoulder strap, and includes a hard rubber Yamaha 4CM mouthpiece. It also comes with a quality ligature and care products.MPN: YTS-875EXB
