Intermediate redesigned alto saxophone from Yamaha.
With a design influenced by high-end Yamaha saxophones, the Yamaha YAS-480 alto saxophone features highly accurate intonation, a warm tone and a quick response. It is lightweight yet durable, and comes with a professional-quality 62-style neck for a more mature quality of sound.
The hand-engraved pattern on the YAS-480 bell adds an extra touch of class, and endears the instrument to its owner. The redesigned octave key system gives players the flexibility to choose between the included 62-style neck and those designed for the Custom Z and Custom EX Yamaha saxophones. The included new 62-style neck has been redesigned for improved tone and response.
The separate key guards feature adjustable screw cap stoppers for professional-style technical adjustments, and the left-hand seesaw key has been designed to increase playability as well as provide a more comfortable feel. The YAS-480 features 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.
