Yamaha YAS-480 Alto Saxophone

With a design influenced by high-end Yamaha saxophones, the YAS-480C 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.

 

Features

  • Hand engraving

A hand-engraved pattern on the bell adds an extra touch of class.

  • Compatible with Custom Yamaha necks

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 (sold separately).

  • Professional Style Neck

A neck based on the original YAS-62 professional saxophone neck is designed for improved tone and response.

  • Key guard

The separate key guards feature adjustable screw cap stoppers for professional-style technical adjustments.

  • Left-hand seesaw key

The left-hand seesaw key has been designed to increase playability as well as provide a more comfortable feel.

  • Improved Low B-C# connection

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.
