A perfect introduction to the soprano sax.

The YSS475S silver plated soprano sax sets a benchmark for intermediate horns. Easy blowing and with exceptionally strong intonation this sax is extremely good value and is a perfect sax for student, intermediates or professional players wanting a doubling horn on a budget.


Description

The YSS475S soprano is a superbly reliable ‘workhorse’ instrument, suitable for everyone from students through to many professional “pit band” players. The fact it has proved so popular on the professional circuit is testimony to the fact that these horns play extremely well as well as having the reliability that Yamaha are famed for. The sax has very strong intonation/tuning as well as proving unusually freeblowing when compared with the majority of equivalent instruments.


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.


All in all an instrument which functions extremely well right across the board. Highly recommended.

Review

Soprano saxes have always been trickier to master than larger horns and also, due to the size, precision build quality is critical. Yamaha’s YSS475S is a great sax, noticeably more controllable than the vast majority of student and even intermediate instruments. The quality of the construction is on a par with their normal high standard. For a well made, flexible instrument which really feels like it works with you rather than fighting against you- in this price bracket- the 475 is extremely hard to beat...... Jules@sax.co.uk

    Being on a slightly restricted budget, but nevertheless wanting a silver plated Soprano....I purchased this sax on spec and have been very satisfied ever since. The unlacquered plating has a vintage look to it out of the box....giving the option of keeping the sax brightly polished or allowing a shaded patina to build up like on many much more expensive coloured lacquer finishes. Playability is typical of Japanese Yamaha instruments....excellent with the robust feel of a long lasting sax. As specified, the intonation is faultless.....this sax will handle anything from Classical, through Jazz to Rock and Blues styles. Highly Recommended....!!
