YTS-82Z Mk II Bb Tenor Saxophone

Overview

With a powerful sound and the ability to play fast passages without difficulty, the YTS-82Z is crafted to meet your highest expectations.

This saxophone is equipped with a one-piece bell for increased resonance and the highly regarded V1 neck for the optimal combination of response and control.

Notes on the Unlacquered Finish (UL) Edition:

Whilst our YTS-82ZUL has a traditional gold-brass coating, it's left un-lacquered and therefore unprotected from the environment. Over time, normal playing and natural oxidation will transform the saxophone into a unique vintage-looking instrument whose finish reflects its journey with you.

In terms of tone, the YTS-82ZUL tends to have a darker, more mellow tone (but with all the colour and richness our Custom Series saxophones are famous for).

Please note that custom saxophones with unlacquered finishes will already exhibit signs of oxidation in what can look similar to scuffing or scratches. Similarly, the undersides of keys and other parts of the saxophone are left uncoated.

Features

One-piece bell with new engraving

In the tradition of those coveted vintage saxophones, the 82Z now comes equipped with a one-piece bell. This feature drastically improves low end response and offers the player a wider palette of tonal colour. More elaborate with finer detail, the new engraving design offers delicate beauty.

Metal resonator pads

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.

V1 neck

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

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.

Lighter thumb hook and thumb rest bases

Lighter thumb rest and thumb hook base designs produce better response and a more cohesive tone.

Adjustable Front F key

An adjustable Front F mechanism gives the player the freedom to find the optimal level of resistance in the altissimo range.

Case

The 82Z is supplied in a high quality lightweight case with a shoulder strap
