Re: Which type of Yamaha Tenor Sax do you recommend for Jazz players?
if you want the lowest end of professional horn, go for the yamaha 62-2. if you are looking for the good stuff, def go for the Custom Z, or Custom EX. they say that EX is for classical, and Z for jazz.....but, i know people who own both and both horns are great jazz horns. If i were you i would look into the yamaha unlaquered. The sound has more "soul" to it. I have a Series 2 Selmer for tenor, but the alto that im looking into now is the unlaquered Custom Z yamaha. Be careful when buying the yamaha though, make sure it is a good one. ive played average yamahas, and awesome yamahas. Just make sure you try a bunch before dropping 2500-3000 dollars. Good Luck
