Product Information

The Yamaha YAS-480 is a great upgrade Alto Sax, ideal for the advancing player. It has a broad, rich, open and expressive sound and is the ideal instrument to take your playing to another level.

With the usual Yamaha excellence in build quality the 480 represents a great step-up option for players at Grade 4/5/6 or indeed an adult who is playing for fun and wanting a higher quality feel and tone.

The YAS-480 benefits from a couple of new features when compared to its old YAS-475 predecessor. A new neck receiver allows a possible crook upgrade later and is modelled on the pro 62 series. The new B/C# connection also ensures better mechanical performance and adds to the already positive and competent key action that is found on all Yamaha's.

  • Excellent first upgrade model
  • Finished in classic gold lacquer
  • Supplied with 4C mouthpiece, ligature and cap
  • Backpack style case is protective and portable
  • 2 year warranty and full workshop set-up pre sale
  • Weight: 2.40kg (Sax + Neck only)

Thank you so much in these difficult times for a no nonsense ordering and delivery. My new Alto reached me in Spain on time, it’s a pleasure to play. Fantastic instrument much better than my old Trevor James Horn!!! I will certainly recommend you!
