    The SA80 can be very good and easy to play, I got one ! I don't know the Yam.

      One of my friends is in the Mighty Lester big band from New Orleans and plays a Yamaha Custom Z, they have a great pitch and intonation as well as adjusting well to different mouthpieces. I PERSONALLY have NEVER PLAYED ONE YET. I can tell you that the sound quality from John was amazing.

      Make sure you try both horns with the same reed and mouthpiece combination. I know it sounds obvious but it should not be overlooked.
