Yamaha YAS-875EXII Saxophone Presents Innovations in Style, Sound and Design for 'Stress-Free' Performances


Anaheim (January 21, 2016) – Created to take the experience of playing to a more comfortable and responsive level, the Yamaha YAS-875EXII alto saxophone incorporates both ergonomic innovations and sonic improvements with stress-free playability in mind.

Built on the success of its predecessor, the YAS-875EX, the redesigned YAS-875EXII delivers even richer tone and clarity, as well as greater pitch accuracy. New and improved ergonomic key work reduces physical stress, while subtle changes in tone hole size and positioning allows for better intonation.

Sax players will appreciate refinements in the bottom bow design, and the addition of acoustic annealing provides beautiful resonance and optimal response. These features combine to offer all players, from serious students to professional performers, an instrument possessing the highest level of craftsmanship backed by Yamaha consistent quality.

"This is not only the next level of design for a great saxophone, but it’s an instrument that feels natural in the player’s hands, responds effortlessly in the low range, and plays right in tune with a beautiful timbre," said Brian Petterson, marketing manager, wind instruments, Yamaha Corporation of America. "The Yamaha saxophone design team considered every detail of the instrument and created a genre-defying instrument that will allow players to speak with their own musical voices."
