The evolution of the Yamaha Custom Z continues with the latest Yamaha YAS-82ZMK3 'Custom Z' Professional Alto Saxophone.

This redeveloped model of the Custom Z Saxophone has been equipped with a one-piece bell for increased resonance and a highly regarded V1 neck for the optimal combination of response and control. The one-piece bell of the Yamaha Custom Z Saxophone has ensured improvement in the saxophone's low end response, also allowing a wider palette of tonal colours.

The Custom G1 neck helps produce a quick and agile response, while key action and placement feel just right. These innovations will allow you to craft the tone and style you're after- from vintage to contemporary- without the need to sacrifice comfort for sound.
