Manufacturer: Yamaha

The Yamaha YTS480 is a top-quality tenor saxophone for intermediate and advanced students that will also impress professional players. Like all Yamaha saxes, it has been designed to produce the best possible tone with impeccable intonation and is built to last.

Its body is made from yellow brass finished in a choice of gold lacquer or silver plate, and the bell features classy decorative engravings. A 62 style neck joint is included which is slightly narrower than normal and has been specially shaped to provide an extra-responsive feel and versatile tone. The octave key mechanism is compatible with the Yamaha Custom series necks making it easy to upgrade without having to buy a whole new sax as players progress and wish to fine tune their sound.

Keywork includes high F# and teardrop front F keys as well as a left hand seesaw mechanism for extra comfort and an improved B/C# system that ensures a consistent clear sound in the lower register. Stainless steel springs and waterproof leather pads with plastic tone boosters make for a reliable action, and seperate key guards feature adjustable screw cap stoppers thereby allowing for extremely precise adjustments. There’s also an adjustable thumbhook/strap hook on the back to help saxophonists of all ages find a comfortable playing position.

Every YTS480 Bb tenor saxophone comes supplied as an outfit with a semi-hard carry case, Yamaha mouthpiece and cap, ligature, neck strap, and polishing cloth.
