HELP, I Want One!

Custom E1 Laquer & Sterling Silver Necks Included

Here is a wonderful top professional Yamaha Custom Z alto sax, serial number C81413. This is one of the rare cryogenically treated Yamaha altos, and comes with a second neck as well. This is a premium package for the serious classical or jazz player.


The horn itself is in fantastic shape. There are no dents or dings, and no resolders. There is a minor past repair on one side of the bell flare, which was professionally corrected. The pads, fitted with brown plastic resonators, are all in great shape, and the sax will get a full pro set up from our shop before we ship it. The sax comes with two necks, its original Custom V1 neck in lacquer, and a replacement sterling silver Custom V1 neck as well, giving the player several options for tweaking your sound. Both necks are in great shape, though there is a minor chip in the Yamaha emblem on the lacquer neck (as seen in photos).


Whether it is the cryo treatment of the brass or the fact that it is a great alto regardless, this is a very sweet sounding horn. It plays effortlessly from low Bb up into the altissimo, and can alternately be sweet and lush sounding one moment, and edgy and powerful the next. A dynamic sax that is a whole lot of fun to play.
