Tone you always dreamed of. Playability you never imagined.

Inspired by the classic tones of early instruments, yet benefitting from the latest

design and manufacturing methods, Yamaha ProCustom saxes represent the

finest instruments we have ever made.

We’ve worked with some of the world’s greatest instrumentalists to

produce this range. People like Phil Woods and

Jean-Yves Fourmeau have given their time

in the quest for the perfect saxophone.

Never compromise your technique or expression in

the search for tone again.
