Yamaha YTS875EX Bb Tenor Saxophone
This professional level saxophone is flexible enough to be used for any type of music as it has a smooth response with a refined sound, which is full of colour.
The Yamaha YTS-875EX02 Bb tenor sax is ideal for you as a professional saxophonist of any style looking for an instrument that can handle even the most demanding repertoire.
Yamaha's highly evolved flagship model features stress-free key work, low-register playability and arguably the best intonation of any saxophone.
Improved versions of that proven classic the Custom 875, the EX saxes are the result of decades of painstaking research and trials involving some of the world's greatest saxophonists. They feature a smooth response and a deep, refined sound full of rich colours. They also feature a solid feel with quick and nimble action, a wide dynamic range, stunning projection, and an authoritative tone with a beautifully defined tonal core.
- 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.
- Easy to play in the lower register: During the design process, Yamaha experimented with new methods for producing the bottom bow of the instrument. The diameter of the low C and D toneholes has been reduced and Yamaha’s unique acoustic annealing process has been applied to enhance low note playability. Resistance is consistent throughout the instrument’s range.
- E1 neck: The E1 neck provides accurate intonation and an improved response.
- Bell brace: The bell/body brace features two-point contact for enhanced projection and a free-blowing response.
- Octave key: The octave key has a unique new ball joint design for smoother, quicker action. The new neck receiver improves the tonal resonance.
- Centre-bow reinforcement plate: The centre-bow reinforcement plate has been removed on the EX tenor for a free blowing resistance.
- Left-hand seesaw key: The left hand seesaw key has been redesigned to facilitate playability as well as feel more comfortable.
The Yamaha YTS-875EX is supplied in a hard case with shoulder strap. Also included is a Yamaha 4CM ebonite mouthpiece, cap, ligature, external cleaning cloth, cork grease and sample reed.
