Yamaha Design “Synapses” YAS-62/82Z, YTS-62/82Z
The Standard in Saxophones, Evolved.
In transforming the player’s breath into sound, a wind instrument is truly an extension of the body. When a musician picks one up to play, it fits itself to his fingers; when he blows into it, it resonates, deepening the connection between player and instrument.
Timbre, feel, key action, and engraving are all to professional standards and enable the player to hit every note with the desired feeling. Whatever the situation, these saxophones can be counted on when on-stage.
The body is hammered into the pleasing lines of a morning glory, and then a master engraver pours his heart into every instrument. The artist, engraver, and developer work together as one to create a work of art.
The floral engraving has a universal appeal free of any bonds to time or place. The design is both sophisticated and informal, combining a subtle modernity with traditional technique.
