Introducing the Yamaha YAS480 intermediate Eb alto saxophone outfit

The Yamaha YAS480 alto saxophone outfit is an excellent choice for the progressing saxophonist and is most often chosen as an upgrade model from a starter instrument.

Yamaha is a brand trusted by millions of musicians around the world. An eye for detail and the utilisation of modern technologies have allowed Yamaha to dominate the woodwind and brass market for many years. The YAS480 comes from a culmination of these techniques to produce an instrument which enhance the playing experience through precision of sound and accuracy of intonation.


A Perfect Intermediate Model

The YAS48 offers a little more resistance than the student model, enabling the player to work on their quality of tone. The sound produced is very rich, full bodied and resonant which is a great feature when progressing onto an intermediate instrument.

The YAS480 is a small upgrade from the previous YAS475 and has an improved low B-C# connection for better adjustment and consistent closing of the C# key. This is the key which tends to cause the most problems over time in student instruments. The new connection further allows a clearer response in the lower registers.

Furthermore, a redesigned octave key system (from the 62 Series) facilitates the use of custom necks. This latter development enables you to experiment with different crook designs as well as mouthpiece shapes which is all important in personalising your sound. The YAS480 has separated key guards which gives much greater flexibility when moving quickly over the key work. The delicate pattern engraved onto the bell adds a touch of elegance to an already stylish instrument.
