The Yamaha YAS-480 Alto Sax takes its cue from the professional Yamaha saxes yet keeps the price firmly in the intermediate range.  We found the YAS-480 to have strong intonation and a very warm tone not commonly found in instruments in this price range.  This intermediate alto sax is an ideal Step-Up Instrument for musicians who have outpaced their student saxes.
 

  • Pro Quality 62-style Neck allows for a more professional sound
  • Compatible with Custom Z & EX Yamaha Necks
  • Ornate Hand-Engraved Bell improves response and widens the tonal range capabilities
  • Left-Hand Seesaw Key
  • Upgraded Low B-C# Mechanism ensures a proper seal and clear response
  • Backpack Case Included

 

Why Step-Up? As a musicians' skills become more advanced, their instruments need to do the same.  Step-Up Instruments (also called Intermediate Instruments) are designed with the professional features an advancing player needs, but on an instrument that can be purchased at a manageable price. These instruments are an ideal choice for progressing young students in need of an instrument that can meet their developing needs through high school, college, and often, beyond.
