Yamaha YSS-82Z Custom Z Professional Soprano (YSS-82ZB, YSS-82ZS, YSS082ZU)

Based on the scale and design of the classic '62' models, Custom Z saxes have bodies that are made of a special brass alloy for lighter weight, a great playing 'feel', and the kind of tonal flexibility you've always dreamed of. The Z plays evenly in all ranges, and gives the player a huge dynamic range for as much - or as little - sound as you want. The Custom Z saxes have unparalleled tonal flexibility for confident performance in all styles of music, and there's no need to sacrifice comfort for sound.

The 82Z is a straight, one-piece body.  Finishes include Lacquer (YSS-82Z), Black Lacquer (YSS-82ZB), Silver-Plate (YS-82ZS) and Un-lacquered (YSS-82ZU).

We recommend the Selmer Concept Soprano Mouthpiece which really gives the Yamaha sopranos a great sound.  Click on the "Mouthpiece Option" if you would like to add this or our other choices for a good mouthpiece for this horn.

Sax Alley price includes our $350 "New Horn Set Up" and FREE SHIPPING so the instrument will play as well as possible once you receive it.
