The Custom EX represents one answer to Yamaha’s pursuit of the ideal saxophone sound and is the result of decades of painstaking research and trials with some of the world’s greatest saxophonists. Designed with the classical saxophonist in mind, the EX saxes offers smooth key response, blows comfortably, and delivers a deep, refined sound rich with colour. The EX also provides great flexibility with a wide dynamic range, and stunning projection that fills the hall with an authoritative tone.
The YSS875EX is Yamaha's flagship soprano saxophone. Considered by many to be the finest soprano saxophone ever made, the YSS875EX has broader expressive capabilities with precise intonation thanks to the new G2 neck design. With the YSS875EX you'll never have to decide between playing on a straight or curved neck, as both are included with the saxophone.
Designed and built to last, the YSS875EX features Yamaha's heavier rib plate that offers a darker tone. This custom model comes in a beautiful gold lacquer finish, which when combined with the gold lacquer keys and Mother of Pearl key tops, produces a truly majestic looking instrument.
