Sax.co.uk Recommends

A perfect sax for advancing students who love silver saxophones.

The Yamaha YAS480 is Yamaha’s first upgrade from their flagship 280 model. There are a few design upgrades here which, while small, really give this horn an edge.


Description

Like all Yamaha saxes the 480 is an extremely well designed and hugely playable horn. It’s medium to bright tone, together with slick keywork and a very freeblowing response makes this a smooth and satisfying instrument to work with; easy enough for a raw beginner but offering enough depth and versatility for the more seasoned user.


The brass body is left unlacquered and plated with beautiful bright silver plating. The lack of lacquer does mean occasional cleaning with a silver cloth is required in order to maintain the finish. However, the added layer of resonant precious metal gives more projection and a wonderful extra dimension to the sound.

Reviews

It was great to find the latest Yamaha "intermediate" sax has received a neck upgrade to the excellent 62 model and is even compatible with the Yamaha Custom necks. Further improvements to the keywork make this a sax that you can live and grow with. Along with many Yamaha endorsees, I find the silver plating really does add some extra "star quality."
