Perfect step for your soprano side
Moving into playing the soprano sax opens a whole new range of possibilities. Enjoy new notes, solos, and ensembles with a refined saxophone. The YSS475II Bb soprano combines quality and affordability, making it the perfect instrument to be your first and last soprano sax. Thanks to its mature tones and focused high frequencies, this Yamaha saxophone is trusted by pros to have all the versatility you'll need in the future at a low price point. Unlike cheaper soprano saxophones that get a reputation for being difficult to play, here you get remarkable response, sound, and intonation so you can love playing soprano.
The YSS475II is made in Japan, where Yamaha craft their finest instruments. You see the influence of their top ranges in this design, being largely based on their iconic Custom EX saxophones. It will be a pleasure to keep this instrument with you long-term, as Yamaha's excellent quality makes them easier to service and more reliable to own. Play a sax you can trust.
Professionals view Yamaha's mechanisms as the very best. This soprano saxophone is no exception, with effortless playability thanks to high-quality, lightweight keys for a comfortable feel and accurate voicing. Again, this is a future-proof choice as their key buttons, made from polyester, are durable and feel great to play.
Playing is a pleasure with this soprano's features. Your comfort is key with a custom style Bb spatula key design, which supports the best holding technique. The YSS-475II, like most professional soprano saxophones, now features a high F# key so you can enjoy more alternate fingerings. Simplify your fingering also with a lower vent tube design, reducing the noise on lower vent key action so your every performance will feel smooth.
This Yamaha YSS475II saxophone looks and feels amazing. Yamaha use only the finest materials, so you know this all-brass body will release the most clear, warm sound that projects well. The one-piece body reduces your saxophone's weight for a comfortable hold whilst maintaining the depth of two-piece pro saxes. Enjoy the best of both with the vibrancy of a one-piece. You'll love the look of your instrument too with the professional finish of a gold lacquer, which also adds to the warmth of your tone. The final detail is a laser engraving on the bell for a precise, intricate effect.
