    Comments about Yamaha YSS475II Soprano Saxophone:

    I used this for playing in a pit for a musical and needed an instrument quickly as my soprano fell and bent its keys. Heather at Sam ash was excellent in getting me this horn overnight. This instrument plays just like a pro model. The intonation is great right out of the case. Plays from low Bb to high F# without effort and I used the stock mouthpiece and reed supplied.

      Comments about Yamaha YSS475II Soprano Saxophone:

      This is an awesome soprano saxophone! I would really recommend this sax to anyone who is trying to get a very good sax! Yes, it is a little more expensive than some, but it is definitely worth it. The sound and responsiveness of the sax is amazing. This sax basically plays itself!

        Is saxophone is great!! It has a rich tone and sound. I bought It because I have played alto sax for 2 years and I wanted something new. It is a lot easier to blow than any other sax and if you can play any saxophone you can definitely play this one!!!!!!
