Welp, my Mark VI is getting overhauled and I have been playing my friend’s Yamaha 82z for the past couple of months. I though it would be a struggle to be away from my horn for so long but I am pleasantly surprised by this saxophone. I actually really like it.
This saxophone has everything I like about the Selmer horns that I’m more used to with some other features that are very nice. I must say, I’m seriously thinking about buying one of these instruments and making it a part of my daily life.
This is a beautifully designed instrument with everything you could ever want. Clear, confident tone, low resistance and the scale is pretty impressive intonation wise. Just goes to show you some of the advancements that have been made in more modern instruments. I have never been a modern saxophone guy but this horn changed my view on that and has made me rethink everything. Check out the video review and let me know what you think about these horns.
