The YAMAHA YTS-82ZUL is a Pro-custom model tenor saxophone finished without lacquer, the choice of many jazz lovers.
It presents a bright colour due to the polishing that is done in the factory before the final packaging, but being a model without lacquer, the colour will be transformed over the days and the contact with oxygen, returning to the typical dark tone of the unlacquer vibe.
This series of saxophones starts the Custom range of the Japanese brand Yamaha. Renovated in 2013, the Yamaha 82Z gives musicians a great deal of freedom of expression, among other things thanks to the new finish of its bell, which is constructed in one piece and hammered by hand. In this way, we gain flexibility throughout the dynamic range.
In this new version, the Yamaha 82Z range is supplied with the V1 Neck (wider) , with a more open and expressive sound. Another improvement to note is the B-C# connection of the left hand mechanism, making it lighter. This custom series has metal resonator pads, with a great response and a wider sound. In addition to improving bass and treble output, they help us to pick up speed in fast passages. Another improvement that adds up is the possibility of adjusting the front F (X key), so we can control the opening of this key.
The independent fenders, allow adjustable stops for the screws, for a professional technical adjustment. The octave key has an exclusive spherical joint design for a more fluid and fast action. Backpack case included and accessories.
