YAS-82ZII Custom Z

On the 10th Anniversary of their introduction, the Custom Z saxophones have been reexamined from neck to bell. They now offer the ultimate combination of expressiveness, response and control while staying true to their free-spirited origins. Since the Custom Z was developed in 2003, the technology, craftsmanship and specifications of the Custom Z series have continued to improve to fulfill the needs of the highest level musicians.



YAS-82ZII Neck
The wide bore taper of the V1 neck provides a free-blowing feel and the greatest possible flexibility.

YAS-82ZII Neck receiver
The nickel silver custom style neck receiver provides a condensed tone and good response with a high rigidity. It has the flexibility to choose between the necks designed for the Custom Z and Custom EX Yamaha saxophones (sold separately).

Octave key with a ball joint to realize utmost smoothness
The octave key has a unique new ball joint design for smoother, quicker action. The new neck receiver improves the tonal resonance.

62 shape with custom brass
Traditional body shape is adopted which makes the sound brighter and playing feel lighter. The material is optimized for custom models.

Ergonomic key layout
Key layout is designed to fit to humans' hands. This helps players concentrate on their performance without feeling stress.

Integrated key posts
This style of key posts adds a moderate resistance and makes the instrument sound as you blow into it.

Adjustable tear drop front F key
The unique tear-drop shaped F key improves playability. It is adjustable to players' preferences.

Mother of pearl key button
Mother of pearl is used as key buttons. It improves playability by making it easier to hold with soft but not slippery surface.

Metal resonator pad
The metal resonators offer an outstanding response and deliver a wider dynamic range. The entire range of the instrument has a clearer pronunciation, providing effortless playability all around.

Seesaw key
The left-hand seesaw key has been designed to increase playability as well as provide a more comfortable feel.

Two-point contact
Two-point contact is adopted for enhanced projection and a free-blowing response.

One-piece bell
Crafsmen shape the bell from a sheet of brass with a hammer. This adds a unity to the body and makes the intonation in middle to lower range smoother. It also has a solid tone.

Bell rings supports the instrument to vibrate well when players blow into it.

Separate style key guard
The separate key guards feature adjustable screw cap stoppers for professional-style technical adjustments.

Without center bow
Removing the center bow improves responses without affecting the quality of sound.

Improved low B-C# connection
An improved mechanism from low B-C# connection ensures the consistent closing of the low C# key and promotes a clear response from notes in the low range of the instrument.
