Yamaha YAS-480 Alto Saxophone

£1,475.00 incl VAT

The Yamaha YAS-480 Alto Saxophone is an intermediate model in the Yamaha saxophone range.

Based on the well known YAS-475, the YAS-480 saxophone features an improved low B-C# connection for better adjustment while the new octave key system (copied from the YAS62 Series) facilitates the use of custom necks.

The Yamaha YAS-480 Alto Saxophone is an excellent step-up instrument for players progressing well into the grades and especially recommended for players who don’t intend to make a career of music but want an outstanding quality playing experience to enhance their enjoyment. It offers a bit more resistance than the YAS280 giving it an authoritative sound and a great flexibility, as well as excellent intonation.

The upgrade on this saxophone is the Yamaha YAS-62

Yamaha YAS-480 Alto Saxophone features:

  • A hand-engraved pattern on the bell adds an extra touch of class
  • The redesigned octave key system gives players the flexibility on choice of necks
  • An improved mechanism from low B-C# ensures the consistent closing of the low C# key and promotes a clear response from notes in the low range of the instrument
  • The 62-style neck has been designed for improved tone and response.
  • The separate key guards feature adjustable screw cap stoppers for professional-style technical adjustments.
  • The left-hand seesaw key has been designed to increase playability as well as provide a more comfortable feel.
  • 4C mouthpiece
  • Quality backpack style case
