The new Custom Z alto and tenor saxophones are targeted towards school-aged, collegiate, and professional saxophonists who play in a solo or ensemble setting. Yamaha anticipates high demand – as the current models (both alto and tenor) have been top sellers in the pro/Custom category since their debut in 2003. These new saxophones are now equipped with a one-piece bell. The addition of the esteemed V1 neck brings improved intonation and enhanced flexibility. Other features include new engraving and an improved B-C# connection.
