The redesigned YTS-875EX saxophone offers many new improvements over the previous models, offering a versatile instrument with an even timbre at all registers and dynamics.

New tone hole sizes
The smaller C, C#, D & E tonehole diameters provide for better intonation

New inner pad cup diameter 
The new smaller cup diameter allows for better response and resonance

G3 Neck 
The custom handmade G3 neck improves intonation

New keys and hook position 
Key and hook placement have been changed for better comfort

Tilting style low Bb spatula keys 
The position, height, angle and shape of the left-hand pinky keys have all been carefully redesigned to provide extraordinary comfort and quick response.

Adjustable thumb rest
All Yamaha saxophones feature an adjustable thumb rest to allow for precise and comfortable hand and fingering position

Refined key shape and dimension
Yamaha saxophone keys are not simply shaped and positioned according to mechanical necessity. The entire system is designed from the player's perspective, with emphasis on comfort, speed, and overall playability. The natural feel of the keys eliminates the need to adapt to an unnatural or uncomfortable key layout.

Available features 
The YTS-875EX tenor saxophone is available in silver (YTS-875EXS), and black lacquer (YTS-875EXB).

    Comments about Yamaha Yts875ex Tenor Saxophone:

    The Yamaha YTS-875EX tenor sax makes playing the saxophone feel like it has always looked in movies. With an effortless feel, lightning response, spot-on intonation, and a vocal-like tone quality, it will keep up with even the most expensive of saxophones lick for lick. Almost every "finicky" key known to sax players is completely customizable for spring strength and throw distance. What a horn! -MK9831
