Unleash your musical potential with the Yamaha YAS480 Eb Alto Saxophone, an intermediate saxophone that bridges the gap between student models and professional instruments. The YAS480 shares many advanced features with Yamaha’s higher-end models, making it a remarkable instrument that delivers superior playability and rich tonal quality.

Crafted for the advancing player, the YAS480 is equipped with a 62-style neck enhancing the overall tone and responsiveness. This design modification allows for an expressive sound that is consistent across all registers. The instrument’s precise intonation and agile response facilitate performers to explore a wide variety of musical styles with ease.

The mechanism from low B to C# has been significantly improved to ensure a consistent closure of the low C# key. This enhancement not only stabilizes the lower range but also boosts the clarity of each note, providing a seamless playing experience.

The left-hand seesaw key significantly enhances ergonomics, providing a comfortable and intuitive feel that reduces player fatigue and allows for longer practice sessions without compromise. 

The saxophone includes a 4C mouthpiece and a lightweight durable case which can be conveniently carried by the handle, shoulder strap or backpack-style straps.
