The Yamaha YTS480 is one of the best options for the advancing tenor saxophone player. Yamaha has improved the mechanism ensuring the low C# key closes consistently. This improvement also means that the saxophone can clearly respond from notes in lower ranges.
To further enhance the tone of the saxophone, Yamaha has introduced a 62-style neck to the design. To give players the choice between this included neck or one sold separately, Yamaha has redesigned the octave key.
For technical adjustments, the separate key-guards feature adjustable screw cap stoppers. Yamaha has added a left-hand see-saw key to improve the playability and comfort of the saxophone. As well as all of these performance improvements, Yamaha have also included a hand-engraved pattern on the bell for added elegance.
Included with the Yamaha YTS480 tenor saxophone is a lightweight moulded case. This case offers tough protection for your instrument to ensure it stays in the best possible condition. The case also includes a shoulder strap and backpack straps for easy transportation between musical events.
