|Featuring an exceptional line-up of high profile musicians on stage, Yamaha presented 'Red Hot Sax Nite II' at Winter NAMM show 2011 to introduce two new Custom Z Series soprano saxophones, the YSS82ZR and the YSS82Z. The much anticipated saxophone models were designed in close collaboration with global Yamaha saxophone artists. The instruments were also highlighted at Musikmesse 2011, Frankfurt, Germany.|
Yamaha’s Z Series saxophones have become a modern classic and are used by leading professional players worldwide. Their strong, clear sound and excellent playability have set new standards in professional model saxophones. In addition, the Z Series soprano saxophones offer accurate intonation along with comfortable response.
In the spirit of the classic Yamaha 62 Series soprano saxophones, the YSS-82Z and YSS-82ZR feature a one-piece neck through bell design. With a direct and powerful sound, the Z Series represents the next step in the evolution of the custom series of Yamaha instruments.
“The new Custom Z Soprano Saxophones are revelations for the modern day saxophone player,” said Jonathan Goldman, product specialist, Yamaha Winds. “Their sound is fantastic and the tonal flexibility is truly amazing.”
