It's time for an upgrade! Where better to look than Yamaha's Intermediate range saxophones, featuring design elements from the professional and custom ranges.
The Yamaha YAS-480 Alto Saxophone is a step ahead. With a little bit more resistance, they have an authoritative sound yet a great flexibility due to the separated key guards. Relatively light-weight and ergonomically shaped, they are easy to hold and to play and it is easy to get a great sound with no need to worry about intonation.
Based on the popular YAS-475 the new YAS-480 saxophones feature an improved low B-C# connection for better adjustment while the new octave key system (from the 62 Series) facilitates the use of custom necks. Hand engraving and a gold lacquered finish give this saxophone an enhanced aesthetic look. All Yamaha saxophones are supplied with neck strap, care accessories and a lightweight case with backpack straps
Available in Gold Lacquer (YAS-480) and Silver Plated finish (YAS-480S). Please call for more details.
