Players around the world know Yamaha baritone saxophones for their outstanding sound. In the YBS480 Yamaha refreshes the traditional image of these instruments with powerful yet delicate tone and exceptional playability. The redesigned bore and neck are modeled after the Yamaha YBS62 professional baritone sax to improve tone, with changes to the bell to enhance intonation, particularly in the lower notes. The ergonomics have been updated, with redesigned key positions and a shorter bell, as well as a peg receiver that allows the use of an optional detachable floor peg. The YBS480 is also considerably lighter in weight than previous models. Together, these improvements serve to make the YBS480 more accessible to players of all sizes.
