Yamaha's 32 series saxes offer professional qualities at an intermediate price. Much of their design is based upon the more expensive Pro and Custom saxes, and they share many of the same features. The 32 saxes deliver outstanding response, tone, intonation, as well as a comfortable playability.
An adjustable thumb hook and tapered pivot screw ensure a more comfortable play and the tilting style Bb spatula keys have been subtly redesigned to allow for a quicker response. These come in addition to the specially designed octave mechanism, which ensures smoother transitions and helps to eliminate fuzzy and imprecise tones when using the octave key.
Comes supplied with a sturdy hard case, a Yamaha 5C mouthpiece, sling, external cleaning cloth and cork grease.
From the most highly recommended 280 student models to the world beating Custom EX, Yamaha saxes have a well-deserved reputation for reliability and high quality.“Since entering the saxophone market in the 1960s, Yamaha has strived for excellence and value in all areas. Our philosophy of continuous product improvement and a no-compromise approach to craftsmanship and materials has resulted in a range of instruments that is second to none.
Working closely with some of the world's leading instrumentalists, Yamaha has taken inspiration from the tonal characteristics of vintage instruments and incorporated these into instruments which benefit from the best that modern manufacturing techniques and technology can offer.
Embracing this approach has enabled Yamaha to create instruments of outstanding personality but which free the saxophonist from the constraints of compensating for an instrument's shortcomings in intonation and tone. Without these restrictions, a Yamaha player is able to concentrate on nothing but the music".
