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.

Fantastic. My son\'s playing and enjoyment leapt up a notch overnight.
Good quality product at a fair price
There is nothing wrong with the product.
Really great tone and tuning. Very responsive instrument with excellent dynamic control.
The Yamaha alto saxophone I purchased is excellent and lives up to the information on your YouTube review
So far so good. Bought for a musical beginner who is already making beautiful sound after just 3 days.
Arrived in perfect condition, ready to play. I love it east to play beautiful tone, extremely happy customer
Great sax for my teenagers progression
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!
The YAS 480 is a great sax with subtle shades and full on power when needed. A surprise for me after mainly using Yanigasawa instruments. Yamaha have produced an affordable workhorse that I feel confident playing in a rock and worship setting.
