Yamaha Custom Z Silver-Plated Tenor Saxophone 223xxx
This saxophone is one of the most exciting modern tenors around because it truly captures the sound and feel of many vintage horns with the intonation and ergonomics of a modern saxophone. It’s the choice of top-pro Frank Catalano. The Custom Z plays very evenly throughout the full range of the horn and into the altissimo register. The new Custom Z saxes are made from a special brass alloy to give the horns a lighter weight and a great-playing feel and are available new only through special order.
This example is in almost perfect condition and has a very recent Barnard overhaul with Pisoni Pro pads and reusable, domed brass resonators. It’s really punchy and cuts through in a large way. The neck is perfect. It will come with a Protec case or can be upgraded to the case of your choice.
Yamaha YTS-82Z Custom Un-Lacquered Tenor Saxophone
– SOLD –
This is a wonderful sounding Yamaha 82Z Custom Tenor Saxophone with a serial number around 176xxx. This model was specifically developed to be great in both the concert band and the jazz worlds, so they have an edge over other saxophones for players who like to do both. It helps capture the older vintage sound many jazz players search for in newer saxophones. Listen to saxophone legend, Jeff Coffin, on an un-lacquered 82Z and you’ll understand what I mean.
This horn is completely un-lacquered, which gives it the beautiful rustic look. It’s only available new through custom order. Nice to be able to pick up such a clean model used. I will set this instrument up before it leaves the shop to ensure that it is in perfect playing condition. It has its original case in great condition. Get this awesome horn before it's gone!
