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.
