Yamaha Precision - SQ Repair - Great Price!
Here is a used Yamaha YAS-480 alto sax in gold lacquer, serial number U09127. These saxes are step-up/intermediate horns with full modern key-work up to palm F# and down to low Bb. The 480 is similar to the pro model YAS-62 with some differences to note, single post construction, black paint octave key logo, stainless steel springs, and a 62 neck.
 
Sonically, this model plays with a bit less focus and richness than the 62, but the sound quality is similar overall. You will find the intonation to be just as solid as the top models, making this a great step-up or backup horn.
 
Although this sax isn't very old, the previous owner put this sax to the test and played it a ton! So we put this horn in line to receive a setup from our repair shop where we will disassemble, clean, and replace a few pads, materials as needed, and check on any key fit issues that may exist. Once complete, there will be a Saxquest 1-year mechanical repair warranty included.
 
Players looking to advance beyond their first student horn at an affordable price would get great use of this sax, it is a good backup for any professional as well. This horn ships in perfect playing condition in its original Yamaha box case.
