Tilting style low Bb spatula keys

The position, height, angle and shape of the left-hand pinky keys have all been carefully redesigned to provide extraordinary comfort and quick response.

Adjustable thumb-rest

All Yamaha saxophones feature an adjustable thumb-rest to allow for precise and comfortable hand and fingering position.

Three-vent octave mechanism

A feature exclusive to Yamaha saxophones, the three-vent octave mechanism eliminates fuzzy, unclear tones when playing G, G# and A with the octave key.

Refined key shape and dimension

Yamaha saxophone keys are not simply shaped and positioned according to mechanical necessity; the entire system is designed from the player's perspective, with emphasis on comfort, speed, and overall playability. The natural feel of the keys eliminates the need to adapt to an unnatural or uncomfortable key layout.

Adjustable key guard felts

Optimum intonation and venting

Tapered pivot screws

Precise adjustment and smooth key action
