After struggling with a student-level alto sax for the past year and a half, I finally have been fortunate enough to find myself able to acquire a new one. This isn't just a better horn, but pretty well my dream horn: a silver Yamaha Custom Z in near-mint condition. It's powerful, free-blowing, has a tone that I quite like, and is a nice match with my silver YTS62 tenor to boot. Needless to say, I'm pretty stoked. I've been needing a horn like this for a long time now.
