Description

Like all Yamaha instruments, the YAS480 Eb alto saxophone is extremely well built and comfortable to play. It is designed for intermediate level players but also exhibits many features one might expect to find on professional instruments.

One notable detail is the adaptable octave key design. Its position allows players to swap the crook for any of Yamaha’s custom neck joints (sold separately) and experiment with different bore shapes and sizes in their quest for the perfect tone. The professional style YAS-62 neck (included) is slightly narrower than other options which means it provides a faster response a better control of the saxophone’s upper register.

Keywork includes a high F#, tear-drop front F, and an improved low B-C# mechanism that makes for a more reliable tone in the lower range. A left-hand seesaw key has been added to aid fast fingering changes as well as to provide an increased level of comfort when playing. The 480 also features separate key guards and adjustable screw cap stoppers throughout thereby facilitating extremely precise technical adjustments.

The saxophone’s two-piece bell is reinforced with a brace to improve the overall tone stability and projection and is decorated with intricate hand engraved patterns for a touch of class. Each instrument is finished in either durable gold lacquer or silver plate.

Each outfit is supplied with a smart black zip-up fitted case with a large external accessory pocket, two durable carry handles, and hide-away shoulder straps. A 4C mouthpiece and cap is also included, along with a ligature, neck strap, and cork grease. Please note: no reed is included.
