May be looking for a unlacquered Yamaha 82Z Tenor
well you know my take on yamaha saxes, i stuck by mine religiously tho i had many chances to get others i always stick by my warhorse of a YTS-62,so basically i am very bias when i say you NEED a yamaha, bonus if it is fitted with reflective pads for extra brightness and projection (i had mine installed last year)

You're saxophone habits are like my jewellery habit - aside from being way to expensive. Every time I see a nice ring/watch/pair of earrings/etc I say to himself 'that would like nice on me' He always says it looks better in the shop and the cash looks better in the bank.

Get what you like I say - if it keeps you happy. Who said we're here for a good time not a long time? :)

well Dave, my personal experience has been sticking to 1 saxophone for over 20 years and it aint done me any harm, maybe it is time you stopped doing a bumble bee, flitting from sax to sax and just settle on 1 solid sax, saying all that i say GET THE YAMAHA hahha

Hi,

did you have the chance to compare the "old" one to the "new" "one-piece" 82Z?

Greetings,
Guenne

Broadminded?

My Selmer is French, you know...

Dave, after 48 hours the withdrawal symptoms will disappear. After a good sleep you can start with some different brand.

Note: before getting my S. tenor, I've been after an 82z too. Not an easy job to find it SH.

Hi,
my dealer offered me one for €3000,-.
That's why I repeat my question:
Are you aware of any differences between the old models (this would be a late 2010) and the new "one piece" horns?

I was puzzled by this question: what do you mean with "one piece"?

Oh my god, I fear my English is not good enough.

There are no screws at the "knee", making a repair quite an effort maybe.
On the other hand there it might be more resonant.

I see... One piece bell. Luckily the neck is still detachable.
Well, between 3k and 3.6k I would go for the better player. I am not sure it would make a difference, but I know of custom works in this direction on baritones: soft soldering the bow to the body. Trustworthy people claim it makes a difference.
