The YAS-875EXII Custom EX alto saxophone marks a huge step forward in saxophone design. Offering players a wealth of new musical possibilities, the new Custom EX has been designed in collaboration with some of the world’s most talented saxophonists, including Nobuya Sugawa, Jean-Yves Fourmeau and Otis Murphy. Their invaluable input has facilitated the creation of an instrument that provides expressive sounds and a stress-free playing experience.
Acoustic Annealing is a precise heat-treating process that altars the grain shapes of the brass molecules in order to attain a quicker, more even response as well as improved resonance. uses their own, proprietary, acoustic annealing process that is fine-tuned to reach the desired effect on instruments.
Post-to-Rib Construction – The key posts are soldered onto a separate bar of metal called a rib which is then soldered onto the body of the saxophone. This increases the strength of construction as well as the weight of the instrument. The added weight results in increased resonance and a richer, deeper sound. Different saxophones use different sized ribs in order to affect the weight and sound quality in different parts of the instrument.The redesigned Custom EX alto saxophone features include:Redesigned Ergonomics:
