Yamaha have been reconsidered from top to bottom and are now equipped with a one-piece bell for increased resonance and the highly regarded V1 neck for the optimal combination of response and control.
- 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 lower 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.
The Yamaha YAS-82Z is supplied in a hard case with external storage pocket and backpack straps. Also included is a Yamaha 4CM ebonite mouthpiece, cap, ligature, external cleaning cloth, cork grease and sample reed.
