Yamaha YAS480 Alto Saxophone

Yamaha YAS480

Alto Saxophone, Finish: Gold lacquer

The YAS/YTS-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/YTS-475 the new YAS/YTS-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

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).
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.
Neck

The 62-style neck has been 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.
