Yamaha YAS-82Z Alto Saxophone

Body design
The 82Z features a two-piece hydro-formed bell. The body, bell, and bow are annealed during production to make this horn more responsive and less resistant.

The new mechanisms on the 82Z allow for faster action and easier repair.

Blue steel springs
The 82Z comes with blue steel springs for faster, more sensitive key response and higher resiliency.

New case
The new 82Z comes equipped with a newly designed lightweight case that has a shoulder strap.

Eye catching engraving will give you the look of a custom horn.
