Yamaha Custom EX sopranos are an improved version of the classic YSS-875, already considered by many to be the finest soprano saxes ever made. The new design with its G2 neck offers even broader expressive capabilities with wide dynamics, precise intonation, and a gorgeous sound with rich harmonics. The YSS-875EX comes with two necks - one straight and one curving - to suit different playing preferences.

The lower vent tubing design reduces noise on lower vent key action

Key post rib plate

Newly designed keys

I received my new Custom Black Lacquered 875EXHG two weeks ago, I do not have enough good things to say about it. Great looking, great feel, amazing tone( darker than the Yamaha 475 I played for the last 20 years), love the two necks. This horn is worth the wait !!! I can't stop playing it!
