Players around the world know Yamaha baritone saxophones for their outstanding sound. In the YBS-480 Yamaha refreshes the traditional image of these instruments with powerful yet delicate tone and exceptional playability. The bell configuration and key layout have been revised for more comfortable hold and stable pitch that will be an advantage for first-time baritone sax players.
Yamaha saxophone keys are designed from the player's perspective, with emphasis on comfort, speed, and overall playability. This redesigned key layout makes the baritone saxophone easier to hold and play.
Bore and neck design
With a vertically integrated bore and neck design from the YBS-62II, the instrument responds like a professional horn.
A shorter bell helps center the challenging intonation of the baritone saxophone's lowest notes.
Detachable peg (optional)
Help support the weight of the baritone saxophone with an optional detachable peg.
