Yamaha is a brand trusted by millions of musicians worldwide. Attention to detail and precision are Yamaha's trait which has earned the trust of beginning students and the respect of world renowned musicians. An inimitable blend of leading technology and craftsmanship goes into each and every instrument. The products are developed and perfected to significantly enhance the overall precision and playing experience.
To finish the saxophones body, Yamaha has coated the instrument with a highly attractive gold lacquer. This material is hard and is known to be very reliable and sustainable, ideal for beginners. The shiny surface offers a high-end look so players can use with confidence.
Yamaha has improved the mechanism from low B-C#, ensuring the low C# key closes consistently. This improvement also means that the saxophone can clearly respond from notes in lower ranges. To further develop the response of the saxophone and the tone that it is capable of producing, Yamaha has introduced a 62-style neck to the design. To give players the choice between this included neck or one sold separately for a Custom Z / EX model, Yamaha has redesigned the octave key. For technical adjustments the separate key guards feature adjustable screw cap stoppers. Yamaha has added a left-hand seesaw key to improve the playability and comfort of the saxophone. As well as all of these performance improvements, Yamaha has also included a hand-engraved pattern on the bell.
The Yamaha YAS480 Saxophone comes equipped with an AS-4C mouthpiece and plastic mouthpiece cap. Made from high quality phenol resin, the 4C features a design inspired by the Yamaha Custom series. The 4C offers consistent playing technique and is recommended by teachers as a suitable upgrade for avid students. The facing of this series is shorter than the custom series which makes it easier for beginners to play and is capable of achieving rich characteristic sounds. Also included with this saxophone is a case to help keep it protected during travel.
