The Yamaha YSS475SII Bb Soprano Saxophone offers an excellent response tone and intonation. Players can focus solely on their musical preparation as the YSS475SII is both easy and comfortable to play. The adjustable thumb rest allows for comfort along with better hand and fingering positioning for all. Yamaha has added a high F# key to the design for more alternative fingering and added versatility. A new body shape provides better intonation and maximum air-flow while the lower vent tubing has decreased the noise in the lower vent key action. The key post rib plate has enhanced the designs protection resulting in improved durability and strength. The new keys are much lighter than before providing comfort and improved playability. Also new to the design are the bullet point headless pivot screws which make adjustments easier to apply than ever before. For added elegance Yamaha has included laser engraving offering a traditional appearance and prestige. The Yamaha YSS475SII Saxophone comes equipped with a SS4C mouthpiece so players can start to practise as soon as their saxophone arrives.
