The YCL-450 intermediate model clarinet incorporates some of the distinct qualities of Yamaha's professional and custom clarinets. One of these features is a 65mm barrel design that produces a focused tone and quick response. Players looking to “step-up” their performance will do just that with this instrument.
Yamaha YTS-480S tenor saxophone – new model (replaces YTS-475), new neck holding fixture and better B/C#- combination, high thomann F# key, new octave mechanism, silicone- treated pads, brass body and keys, hand engraved, silver plated, incl. light case with backpack straps and 4C mouthpiece
With a design influenced by high-end Yamaha saxophones, the YTS-480 features highly accurate intonation, a warm tone and a quick response. It is lightweight yet durable, and comes with a professional-quality 62-style neck for a more mature quality of sound.
The new 62 is an improved version of Yamaha's Classic 62 Series Sax, the instrument that revolutionised the world of the saxophone, becoming the first serious challenge to the famous instruments of the past. The 62 has always been the sax of choice for many of the world's top pros. Offering surprising value for the price, and amazing flexibility (it can be used for virtually any musical genre) it is characterised by a highly expressive tone, comfortable playability and extremely accurate intonation. One of the biggest new improvements to it is the G1 neck, which gives a better response and more playing flexibility. Also, the entire body has been annealed for a rich resonant sound.
The unique saxophone for the younger and smaller player!
Design – The Alphasax is based around the original body tube of an alto saxophone with completely redesigned mechanism and tone hole positioning for the smaller individual who would previously have been told to “wait until they got bigger” before they could learn to play the sax.
The Alphasax Solution to a normal alto saxophone for the younger or smaller player
Problematic keys with long finger stretch have been removed or redesigned for extra comfort.
The weight has been reduced by an amazing 33%.
Key and Mechanism – The Alphasax in the key of Eb, with a full two octave chromatic facility using established finger positioning to enable the smaller player to learn the alto saxophone using current study books. New and innovative mechanism has enabled us to maintain the finger positioning of a normal saxophone.
