Yamaha YAS-480 Intermediate Alto Saxophone
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.
Compatible with Custom Yamaha necks
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.
