The YTS-480 intermediate tenor saxophone delivers professional qualities at an intermediate price. Through the Yamaha ideology of 'vertical integration', many of the design features were adopted from top-level Custom EX saxophones, offering outstanding response, tone and intonation.
The YAS/YTS-480 saxophones are a step ahead. With a little bit more resistance, they have an authoritative sound yet a great flexibility due to the separated key guards.
Ergonomics, playability and intonation are excellent as you would expect from Yamaha.
Based on the popular YAS/YTS-475 the new YAS/YTS-480 saxophones feature an improved low B-C# connection for better adjustment while the new octave key system (from the 62 Series) facilitates the use of custom necks.
