A hand-engraved pattern on the bell adds an extra touch of class.

Compatible with Yamaha Custom Necks

The redesigned octave key system gives players the flexibility to choose between the included 62 style neck and those designed for the Custom Z and Custom EX Yamaha saxophones (sold separately).

Key guard

The separate key guards feature adjustable screw cap stoppers for professional-style technical adjustments.

Left-hand seesaw key

The left-hand seesaw key has been designed to increase playability as well as provide a more comfortable feel.
