Yamaha 480 Tenor Sax
The Yamaha 480 tenor sax is a step ahead. With a little bit more resistance, it has an authoritative sound yet a great flexibility due to the separated key guards.
Ergonomics, playability and intonation are excellent as you would expect from Yamaha. Based on the popular Yamaha 475 Tenor Sax the new Yamaha 480 Tenor Sax features an improved low B-C# connection for better adjustment while the new octave key system (from the 62 Series) facilitates the use of custom necks. In the range of Tenor Saxophones made by Yamaha this is second up from the bottom, the YTS280 being the first.
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). 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. The left-hand seesaw key has been designed to increase playability as well as provide a more comfortable feel.
