Sax.co.uk Recommends

A perfect sax for advancing students who like silver saxophones.

A step up from the class leading YTS-280S, the YTS-480S has some small but significant design upgrades which really give this horn an edge.


Description

Like all Yamaha saxes the 480S is an extremely well designed and hugely playable horn. It’s medium to bright tone, together with slick key-work and a very free-blowing response make 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, we find their silver plated models really do have some extra "star quality."
