On the 10th Anniversary of their introduction, the Custom Z saxophones have been reexamined from neck to bell. They now offer the ultimate combination of expressiveness, response and control while staying true to their free-spirited origins. Since the Custom Z was developed in 2003, the technology, craftsmanship and specifications of the Custom Z series have continued to improve to fulfill the needs of the highest level musicians.  The Un-lacquered and Silver-Plated models play exceptionally well!



One-piece bell with new engraving

In the tradition of those coveted vintage saxophones, the 82Z now comes equipped with a one-piece bell! This feature drastically improves low end response and offers the player a wider palette of tonal color. More elaborate with finer detail, the new engraving design offers delicate beauty.

Metal Resonators

Domed metal resonators offer an outstanding response and deliver a wider dynamic range. The entire range of the instrument has a clearer pronunciation, providing effortless playability all around.

V1 neck

The wide bore taper of the V1 neck provides offers a free-blowing feel and the greatest possible flexibility. This combination of features allows the player the ultimate level of tonal expression.

Improved Low B-C# connection

An improved mechanism from low B to C# ensures a proper seal for these notes which promotes a clear response throughout the low range of the instrument.

Lighter thumb hook and thumb rest bases

Lighter thumb rest and thumb hook base designs produce better response and a more cohesive tone.

Adjustable Front F key

An adjustable Front F mechanism gives the player the freedom to find the optimal level of resistance in the altissimo range.

Z Style Case

The 82Z saxophones come in slim, lightweight cases which provide excellent protection. A convenient shoulder strap is also included.
With the new one-piece bell and V1 neck these are truly a great playing tenor.  The Black Laquered finish is our favorite as the heavy lacquer warms the sound and gives it better projection as well.
The innovative new Custom Z tenor saxophone boasts powerful projection and effortless flexibility to help you stand out in the crowd!
