On the 10th Anniversary of their introduction, the Custom Z saxophones have been reexamined from neck to bell. They now offer the ultimate combination of expressiveness, response and control while staying true to their free-spirited origins. Since the Custom Z was developed in 2003, the technology, craftsmanship and specifications of the Custom Z series have continued to improve to fulfill the needs of the highest level musicians.

About Yamaha Custom Z Saxophones

Based on the scale of the classic Ë62 models, the new Custom Z saxes have bodies that are made of a special brass alloy for lighter weight, a great playing feel, and the kind of tonal flexibility you've always wanted. The Z plays evenly in all ranges, and gives you a huge dynamic range for as much or as little sound as you need. The advanced neck design helps produce a quick and agile response while key action and placement feel just right.
