With a design influenced by high-end Yamaha saxophones, the YAS-480 features highly accurate intonation, a warm tone and a quick response. It is lightweight yet durable, and comes with a professional-quality 62-style neck for a more mature quality of sound.

Features:
  • A hand-engraved pattern on the bell adds an extra touch of class.
  • 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).
  • The new 62 style neck has been designed for improved tone and response.
  • The separate key guards feature adjustable screw cap stoppers for professional-style technical adjustments.
  • The left-hand seesaw key has been designed to increase playability as well as provide a more comfortable feel.
  • 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.

  • A good, solid step-up
  • May 26, 2015
  • By: Paul

This instrument is a decent step-up instrument, though the model 52 would probably be a better choice. It's comfortable and has some advantages over the Model 26; the ergo is more suited for an older student and the tone is a bit more sophisticated. That said, I didn't feel it had QUITE enough benefit as an upgrade horn when compared to the older model 52. Still, a good solid instrument!
