Way better than intermediate


Way better than the usual intermediate horn- I use it primarily to record the harmony sax parts on merengue recordings- it gets the job done wonderfully- thick strong sound with impeccable intonation. Just what you would expect from a Yamaha!



Great Sax for advancing musicians


The Yamaha YTS-480 is an awesome tenor sax. It plays and sounds amazing. It's easy to play through the different ranges and has an even and clear tone that makes it great to play for many different styles of music. This is a real, hands on product review by Sean at Sam Ash Indianapolis.
