The YAS-480 saxophones are a step ahead. With a little bit more resistance, they have an authoritative sound yet a great flexibility due to the separated key guards.
Ergonomics, playability and intonation are excellent as you would expect from Yamaha.
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.
A hand-engraved pattern on the bell adds an extra touch of class
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.
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).
