Right Choice

By Derrick Metheny

from Undisclosed

Comments about Yamaha YTS-875EX Custom Tenor Saxophone:

I've had this horn for about a year now and I still can't get over how well it plays. It is like the horn was form fitted for my hands. There is no doubt in my mind that I made the right choice when I bought it. PERFECT!!! Enough said.

YTS 875 EX

By Intaeus

from Brewer Maine

Comments about Yamaha YTS-875EX Custom Tenor Saxophone:

My dad just purchased this horn for me, and I must say, I am totally impressed. I was playing my high school's intermediate Jupiter tenor saxophone and when my freshman year came to an end, we decided that it was time for a new horn. After looking through numerous brands, we settled on Yamaha for their supreme quality and workmanship, and because I also have a student alto saxophone from Yamaha via Music123. All I can say is that when I let loose the first note from this saxophone, its fluid action and resonating sound, along with perfect fit, struck me as being a thousand times better than that of the Jupiter, or any other brand of sax that we looked at within a comparable price range. Thanks Yamaha for providing me with such a great horn. Eric

an excellent horn!!

By Cindy Delano

from Sydney

Comments about Yamaha YTS-875EX Custom Tenor Saxophone:

This is an excellent sax for all styles, especially classical playing but can play jazz great too. The keywork is smooth and easy under the fingers and the tone is very rich. THe choice of necks is handy too - i got the G1 neck which responds very well. THe mouthpiece that comes with the horn is good also - just a standard yamaha ebonite mpc but plays well!! This horn has made me enjoy playing again!!!!!!

Fantastic saxophone

By Graham Spence

from Auckland

Comments about Yamaha YTS-875EX Custom Tenor Saxophone:

This is an excellent horn, very responsive,smooth action and deep sound. Quite a heavy sax in comparison with other makes but this isn't a problem. This is a great 'all-round' horn, good for all kinds of playing.

Great ergonomics- excellent sax.

By Henry Duran

from Minnesota

Comments about Yamaha YTS-875EX Custom Tenor Saxophone:

The custom plays very, very well. It has incredibly smooth keywork laying right under your fingers. The construction is durable and easy to reregulate should the need arise- though it's built like a saxophone shaped tank. Beautifully full lower end and great flexibility and intonation- though the overall industrial perfection sometimes makes me feel like I'm using a really well crafted appliance rather than a musical instrument. The case looks great, comes with a cover, and makes a great first impression but is cardboard over styrofoam and really isn't even a small step above a gig bag in terms of protection.

Sweet sax

By Kenny G.

from Raleigh, NC USA

Comments about Yamaha YTS-875EX Custom Tenor Saxophone:

This sax has beautiful tone quality and the finger work is like butter. The high register is a little thin. I would definitely recommend this saxophone to anyone he is serious about playing the sax.

Great Horn!!!

By Dave Hollister

from Salisbury,Md

Comments about Yamaha YTS-875EX Custom Tenor Saxophone:

After a careful search for "my horn" I am overwhelmed with my choice of the Yamaha Custom 874B!!! After playing a Yani 901 for the last four years( a pretty good horn) the transition has been equivalent to jumping from a Toyota Echo to a top of the line Lexus. The sound is awesome and the keywork is extremely comfortable.I've been all over this horn and can't find a weakness!!! I highly recommend it.

Fantastic horn

By Greg Pflugh

from Pittsburgh, PA

Comments about Yamaha YTS-875EX Custom Tenor Saxophone:

I bought my YTS-875 two and a half years ago brand new from WW & BW, and since have used it for basically every style of music that can use a saxophone. I have used my 875 for solo classical playing, saxophone quartet, rock/R&B cover bands, jazz big band, small groups, and also in more demanding environments such as staged shows at Cedar Point, and I currently have it on the road with me on the Glenn Miller band.The 875 has been an ideal horn for me because it has the ability to have a great characteristic sound in all of these genres. The keywork and intonation have been nothing short of stellar. In addition, this horn is durable. It can take the rigors of travel and being played on in at times harsh environments (hot, cold, humid, dry). I would highly recommend this horn to anyone who wants a consistent, versatile, and durable saxophone that has quite frankly risen far above my expectations. Thank you Yamaha!
