Introducing the New Flagship Custom Soprano Saxophone
The latest addition to the flagship Custom EX Saxophone range is the new YSS875EXHG, the first Yamaha soprano sax incorporating a high G key.
Designed in collaboration with World class Saxophonists such as Jean-Yves Formeau and Nobuya Sugawa, the new saxophone features the same exceptional sound characteristics and playability of the non-high G model but with an extended range.
By incorporating an additional key to an existing model which is already well balanced and has perfect intonation and tonal focus, you run the risk off affecting its playing characteristics due to the additional weight of the key and it’s mechanism.
Therefore the new High G Custom EX soprano has been redesigned to reduce weight in certain areas including some changes to the body and key work, which has resulted in the saxophone having the same great playing feel and characteristics of the non-high G model. Many high G soprano saxophones suffer with a weaker lower register with some notes speaking very poorly but the new Yamaha EX Custom has excellent intonation and evenness throughout it’s entire range, from the very bottom of it’s register to the highest altissimo.
