This is a good opportunity to save $1500 off the price of a new Yamaha 82z on a good condition used one in good playing condition. This horn is on consignment, and the previous owner had the pads replaced, so they are all in very good condition. The 82z is a very popular saxophone for many different kinds of players today, from serious students looking for a pro horn at a very reasonably price, to adults looking for a well-made Yamaha pro line saxophone that is great for getting into playing or for upgrading from a cheaper saxophone to get more serious. This horn is the top of the line, yet it is not very expensive! It has some cosmetic scratching under the key work, where someone probably cleaned it too abrasively at some point. From even 2 feet away, this is not visible, so it’s not a big deal. But the horn has been played, and doesn’t look new, for this reason. Besides that, there’s not much else to mention on condition. This includes the original Yamaha case, and if you need other accessories, let me know. I always have a few extras of things around that I could throw in.
Tonally, the 82z is quite flexible. It works with most any mouthpiece you might choose, and can do classical or ensemble work just fine, and it also has the brightness and edge when pushed to work well for jazz and other kinds of commercial music, based on what mouthpiece you choose.
I also have a mint in box Yamaha V1 neck available that you could add to the purchase if you want to. The V1 neck is very popular for its distinctive tonal qualities – it is supposed to be the best melding of the various neck options out there. According to one player who strikes me as a saxophone neck geek, “Yamaha has done it. What is it? They have balanced the free blowing resonance of the G1, the timbre of the G3, and the control and intonation of Selmer’s original Reference 54 neck into one package called the V1. The primary tradeoff is the G1’s free blowing nature.” So you’d be getting the original G1, plus the V1 for an extra $175 or so. Get this now, and save some money on a great pro Yamaha alto! Only one available!
