Yamaha Alto Sax YAS480

Yamaha Alto Sax YAS480

DR TOOT Brass & Woodwind present a pre-loved (used / secondhand) Yamaha alto saxophone YAS480. 

The YAS480 is a current intermediate/semi pro model, which was released in November 2012 in Japan. It is available new for $3,495.00 RRP in New Zealand.

With a design influenced by high-end Yamaha saxophones, the Yamaha YAS480 alto saxophone features highly accurate intonation, a warm tone and a quick response. 

It is lightweight yet durable, and comes with a professional-quality 62-style neck for a more mature quality of sound. 

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 – It is easier to play and hold the saxophone even someone who has small hands. 

This particular saxophone has just been serviced by our qualified repair technician, Taka who is also a saxophonist.
