Phenomenal tone and world-famous consistency.

The Yamaha YSS-475II, is an intermediate Bb soprano saxophone that provides a seamless transition from student models. Optimized for effortless playability and superior tone, the YSS-475II incorporates advanced features found on Yamaha's professional saxophones. Music educators and students praise the YSS-475II for its solid intonation, sweet sound, and durable build. With a one-piece fixed-neck design and premium yellow brass construction, the YSS-475II produces rich resonance while remaining lightweight. The YSS-475II from Yamaha is an ideal choice for soprano saxophonists ready to take their playing to the next level.

The YSS-475II features optimized keywork with a custom style Bb spatula key derived from Yamaha's YSS-875 EXHG professional soprano saxophone. Providing a light, confident feel, the enhanced keywork facilitates the execution of fast, challenging passages. The redesigned keywork, combined with an adjustable thumb rest and high F# key, gives saxophonists greater control and access across the instrument's range.

For the second-generation YSS-475II, Yamaha redesigned the body shape and vent tubing to optimize airflow and improve intonation. The new bore design enhances the saxophone's resonance and tone while redesigned vent tubing minimizes noise from the lower keys. These refinements, along with a new key post rib plate, result in a robust, finely tuned instrument with superior sound.
