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.
The EX saxes offer smooth key response, blow very comfortably, and deliver 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. Although Yamaha mention this model is designed with Classical saxophonists in mind there are a whole host of jazz and contemporary players using the 875EX series and so its important not to put it into a box from that point of view.
This new EXB model not only looks impressive in the deep black lacquer finish, but it also boasts various new features including:
- The new octave key has a unique ball joint design for a smoother, quicker action.
- The new neck receiver also offers an improvement to the tonal response.
- The bell brace on the body has also been re-designed, it now features a simple two -point contact to allow a free resonance at this point of the instrument.
- There has also been small modifications to the left hand see-saw key to ensure easier playability at speed on the left hand table keys.
In summary, this is Yamaha's premium model that really can do it all in any musical environment. Be it Classical, Jazz, Concert Band, it really is able to perform to the highest level. From the quietest whisper to the loudest roar, the Custom EX has amazing flexibility of tone.
