Yamaha 480 Alto Sax
The Yamaha 480 Alto Sax is a step ahead. With a little bit more resistance, it has an authoritative sound and great flexibility due to the separated key guards. Ergonomics, playability and intonation are excellent, as you would expect from Yamaha.
The 480 has many of the same features found on Yamaha’s professional saxophones that provide these intermediate saxophones with greater playability and optimum tone. These are instruments that bring out the best of the performer and ideal choice for up and coming players. Based on the popular YAS-475 the new Yamaha 480 Alto Sax features an improved low B-C# connection for better adjustment. The new octave key system (from the 62 Series) aids the use of custom necks.
A hand-engraved pattern on the bell adds an extra touch of class.
Compatible with Custom Yamaha necks
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).
Improved Low B-C# connection
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.
The 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.
Left-hand seesaw key
The left-hand seesaw key has been designed to increase playability and provide a more comfortable feel.
