Product ID: 002411Yamaha82ZRSop
This is a mint condition, very lightly used Yamaha Custom YSS-82ZR soprano sax, serial number 002411. Saxquest sold this horn initially in October of last year, brand new, so it is less than a year old. It is in pristine, unplayed condition, and available for a great deal!
As you can see in the photos, this instrument is cherry. There is no noticeable wear, I couldn't even find any scratching under close examination. It has been meticulously well cared for and sparingly played. Pads are still in new shape, and the Saxquest set up is holding perfect.
The 82ZR model is an updated version of the old 62R, with a one piece body and curved neck. Many players prefer a curved neck on the soprano these days, but the detachable versions out there lost some resonance, so Yamaha released the 82ZR to fill this void. It plays with a big sound and is extremely responsive, while keeping a warm center. This instrument still comes with the full Saxquest warranty, and in its original case. The case shows minor shelf wear but is still 99%. A great buy for the pro player wanting a top-of-the-line Yamaha Custom well below the new pricing.
