HELP, I Want One!

Tremendous Physical Condition - a Great Player!

This is a pristine condition Yamaha Custom Z alto sax in black lacquer, serial number C46872. This YAS-82Z is as pretty as they come, and the black lacquer is a site to see in person.


This alto has been treated with kid gloves over its short life so far. The black lacquer shows no real wear to speak of, and there are no dents, dings, or resolders anywhere. The original G1 Custom neck shows no previous damages or repairs. The sax really is as close to perfect as a used horn can get. The original pads, with brown plastic resonators, are still sealing perfectly, and the horn has been professionally set up nicely with a crisp, tight action that is fluid and comfortable.


The black lacquer option on a Custom Z alto is a nice combination. The Z's tend to play a little on the brighter side, but the heavier lacquer warms that some, and the result is a full, powerful horn with depth and color. This alto has the power to play lead alto in jazz or sit in front of a rock band, but can also be tamed down to play in the concert band setting. A very well rounded sax. Comes in its original case, which is also in stellar shape.
