However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 5 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 90 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first two years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 5 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

The Evolution of Yamaha Custom Z Continues

With a powerful sound and highly regarded mechanisms the YAS82Z allows fast passages to be played without difficulty. The Z is crafted so it meets players highest expectations. This new model has been re-examined from the neck to the bell and is now equipped with a one-piece bell for increased resonance, and the popular V1 neck for optimal combination of response and control. The Z plays evenly in all ranges and gives a huge dynamic range for as much - or as little - sound as the player wants. The Custom V1 neck helps produce a quick and agile response, whilst key action and placement feel just right. Players can create whatever style of tone they're after, from vintage to contemporary.

High Quality Materials & Reliable Mechanisms

The YAS82Z has a one-piece bell which features an improved low end response, now capable of producing a wider palette of tonal colour. This bell comes with an elaborate hand engraved design which looks much more delicate than previous models. The metal resonators produce an outstanding response and provides a much wider dynamic range, therefore the entire range of the instrument now has a clearer pronunciation, providing effortless playability all around. The highly regarded wide bore taper of the V1 neck produces a free-blowing feel and great flexibility. The YAS82Z features an improved mechanism from low B-C# connection. This ensures the consistent closing of the low C# key and introduces a clearer response from notes in the lower range of the instrument. Better response and a more cohesive tone are the result of a lighter thumb rest and hook base design. An adjustable Front F mechanism on the Yamaha YAS82Z Custom Z gives players the freedom to find an optimal level of resistance in the altissimo range.

Included Accessories

The Yamaha YAS82Z Custom Z Alto Saxophone comes with a high quality lightweight case with a moulded interior to keep the instrument snug. Ideal for travelling musicians going to and from rehearsals and gigs this bag includes a shoulder strap for a safe and more comfortable journey. Also included in this pack is a Yamaha AS4CM mouthpiece.
