This has to be one of the most exciting things to happen to the sax world in recent times – a modern sax that actually captures the sound and feel of those treasured classic saxes of the past whilst adding state-of-the-art intonation and mechanics. Based on the scale of the classic 62 models the new Custom Z saxes have bodies that are made of a special brass alloy for lighter weight a great playing feel and the kind of tonal flexibility youve always dreamed of.

The new model has been re-examined from the neck to the bell and are now equipped with a one-piece bell for increased resonance and the highly regarded V1 neck for the optimal combination of response and control. The Z plays evenly in all ranges and gives you a huge dynamic range for as much – or as little – sound as you want. The Custom G1 neck helps produce a quick and agile response whilst key action and placement feel just right. You can create whatever style of tone youre after from vintage to contemporary and theres no need to sacrifice comfort for sound. The highly regarded wide bore taper of the V1 neck provides a free-blowing feel and the greatest possible flexibility.
