Yamaha YSS-875EX02 Soprano Saxophone

Yamaha YSS-875EX02 Soprano Saxophone (lacquer finish). Yamaha Custom EX sopranos are an improved version of the classic YSS-875, already considered by many to be the finest soprano saxes ever made. The new design with its G2 neck offers even broader expressive capabilities with wide dynamics, precise intonation, and a gorgeous sound with rich harmonics. The YSS-875EX comes with two necks – one straight and one curving – to suit different playing preferences.  If you want to change the mouthpiece at the point of purchasing please let us know what your preference is and we will see what we can do for you. If you decide on a more expensive mouthpiece then you simply pay the difference.

The Custom EX represents one answer to Yamaha’s pursuit of the ideal saxophone sound and is the result of decades of painstaking research and trials with some of the world’s greatest saxophonists. Designed with the classical saxophonist in mind, the EX saxes offers smooth key response, blows comfortably, and delivers a deep, refined sound rich with colour. The EX also provides great flexibility with a wide dynamic range, and stunning projection that fills the hall with an authoritative tone.
