Description

 

This intermediate saxophone is designed to make the step up from your student model smooth and enjoyable.

The YTS-480 saxophone is a step ahead. With a little bit more resistance, it has 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 YTS-475 the new 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.

 

Features

 

Hand engraving

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

Compatible with other 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.
