The ideal choice for up and coming players. Featuring an authoritative tone with great flexibility the YAS480 alto saxophone is designed for players who are progressing past the grade 5 standard. Similar to Yamahas professional range of alto saxophone the YAS480 features the same octave key system as the 62 models. Not only is this more reliable but also allows custom necks to be used. The YAS480 has many new features which help to improve the performance of the model including a redesigned low B-C# connection to ensure that the low C# key consistently closes. Included with the alto saxophone is a moulded hard case with a Yamaha 4C mouthpiece so you can start practising straight away.
