Yamaha YAS-480 · Alto Saxophone
With the Yamaha YAS-480 Saxophone you are always one step ahead. With a little more resistance you get a focused tone while the split key guard gives musical flexibility and good ergonomics, playability and intonation of the instrument are first class - as usual from Yamaha.
body, neck and mechanics:Body, neck and mechanics are all brass on the alto saxophone. The low weight of the instrument and the quality workmanship guarantee a comfortable, efficient response. The ergonomically designed mechanism provides additional security and a good feel. The additional innovations such as a more stable neck connection and a new deep-H-C#-connection provide improved response and greater stability. The S-bow comes from the 62 series and provides improved response, a fuller sound in the upper octave and a wide range of tones.
sound and response:The YAS has an enormous variety of sounds and a rich and full sound. The direct approach provides additional security and the smooth running mechanism vouches for playing comfort. The well-known and successful balanced Yamaha Sound can also be found in the standard series. When it comes to intonation the YAS-480 need not fear comparison with the high end models. All this sound and playability guarantee a use from classical to Big Band.
case and accessories:A water-repellent lightweight case with sling system allows a back-friendly transport. On the front a pocket for notes and accessories is available. The matching 4C mouthpiece completes the equipment package.
