This is a wonderful, very lightly used Yamaha Custom Z alto sax, serial number E14365. This is one of the newer YAS-82ZII models, with the improvements introduced a couple years ago. It is also is one of the models special ordered without high F#. If you've been looking for the increased resonance (and lighter weight) that a non-high F# horn can bring, this is a great opportunity.

 

This instrument is just a couple years old, and in superb shape. I've looked over it carefully, and found only 1 very faint cosmetic surface scratch. It looks to have only been played with kid gloves, and is as close to new condition as you will find. There is no lacquer wear, no dents or previous repairs, and it comes complete in its original case with the factory accessories, as well as a new Yamaha 4C mouthpiece. This alto has just been freshly set up in our repair shop, and is in perfect adjustment.

 

The 82Z has become one of Yamaha's biggest sellers, and it is easy to see why. This alto plays with a very fast response, excellent control, and a lightning fast attack. Slightly brighter overall in tone color, it takes your air very well and generates a huge sound. Without the added weight of the F# key, you can feel the added resonance under your fingers when compared to a normal 82Z. Fun horn to play for the modern, contemporary player.
