The first baritone saxophone in the Yamaha custom lineup introduces new standards of baritone sax design backed by years of research and development. The YBS-82 responds to the needs of players who are serious about tone, adding mid and high range brilliance to the instrument’s fat baritone low end.
Much more than just a low-part instrument, the YBS-82 has the versatility to take on solo roles as well.
New Bell Design
A shorter, one-piece bell design enhances intonation in all registers.
Revised Key layout
In addition to the use of lightweight keys and new support components, overall balance has been refined for more natural, stress-free hand positioning and smoother playability.
The YBS-82 is supplied with a C1 neck that offers fast response for precise phrasing plus well-defined, versatile tone. A number of optional necks are available: 3 bore diameters in 6 configurations for a total of 18 variations, allowing players to choose the ideal neck for their playing and tonal preferences.
New Peg and Peg Receiver
A new lightweight floor peg and peg receiver improve weight distribution and handling.
This refined mouthpiece provides excellent control with clear tone, giving the player broad expressive freedom.
Case with Wheels
A new hard case with wheels helps move the YBS-82 safely and easily.
