Leveraging a generation of experience with its classic professional YBS-62, extensive feedback from musicians regarding comfort and playability, and the power of computer-aided acoustic design, in 2020 Yamaha introduced the YBS-82 baritone, to finally complete its flagship Custom lineup, joining the YSS-82, YAS-82, and YTS-82.
Crafted out of Yamaha's copper-enriched Custom brass alloy, the YBS-82 features revised, more tactile ergonomics and responsive action and a new slightly shorter one-piece bell that delivers a wallop on demand. Together, with its new hydroformed neck, the YBS-82 elevates the benchmark for smooth, even response and pitch control up and down the registers, with effortlessly predictable intonation. Offering unparalleled precision and tonal richness, instead of adapting to a saxophone, the YBS-82 frees a musician to devote all attention to artistic exploration and expression.
