The Yamaha YAS-480 is an excellent upgrade Alto Sax that is ideal for the advancing player who has developed a great passion for the instrument. It has a broad, rich, open and expressive sound and is the ideal instrument to take your playing to another level. The 480 enjoys the usual Yamaha excellence in build quality, representing a great step-up option for players at Grade 4/5/6 or indeed an adult who is playing for fun and wanting a higher quality feel and tone.
The YAS-480 benefits from a couple of new features when compared to its old YAS-475 predecessor. A new neck receiver allows a possible crook upgrade later and is modelled on the professional 62 series. The new B/C# connection also ensures better mechanical performance as well as ease of navigation around the table keys, furthering the already very positive and competent key action that is found on all Yamaha Saxophones.
