The Yamaha YAS-480 Eb alto saxophone is ideal for you if you are an advancing student looking to get more from your instrument in order to complete the grades.

With a little bit more resistance, they have an authoritative sound yet a great flexibility due to the separated key guards. 

The ergonomics, playability and intonation are excellent as you would expect from Yamaha instruments.

Our guide to buying your first saxophone will help you know what to look for and explains the many features found on a saxophone.

  • Based on the popular YAS-475 the new YAS-480 saxophones feature an improved low B-C# connection for better adjustment while the new octave key system (from the 62 Series) facilitates the use of custom necks.

    Hand engraving:  A hand-engraved pattern on the bell adds an extra touch of class.

  • Compatible with Custom Yamaha necks: The redesigned octave key system gives players the flexibility to choose between the included 62-style neck and those designed for the Custom Z and Custom EX Yamaha saxophones (sold separately).
  • Improved Low B-C# connection: An improved mechanism from low B-C# ensures the consistent closing of the low C# key and promotes a clear response from notes in the low range of the instrument.
  • Neck: The 62-style neck has been designed for improved tone and response.
  • Key guard: The separate key guards feature adjustable screw cap stoppers for professional-style technical adjustments.
  • Left-hand seesaw key: The left-hand seesaw key has been designed to increase playability as well as provide a more comfortable feel.
