Outstanding Yamaha Intermediate Soprano Sax

The Yamaha YSS-475II intermediate soprano saxophone is an ideal choice for advancing soprano players looking to step up from their student instruments. Optimized for smooth action and superior tone, the Yamaha YSS-475 II is an outstanding soprano sax that benefits from company’s “top-down” design process, incorporating advanced features found on the company’s esteemed professional models. Students love the YSS-475II for its easy playability, great intonation, and sweet, lyrical sound; band directors love it for its rock-solid construction, which keeps it in the classroom and not in the shop. For rich resonance, the saxophone’s neck, body, bell, and keys are made from premium yellow brass, while its fixed-neck, 1-piece design sheds weight for a supremely comfortable playing experience. The Yamaha YSS-475II offers solid quality, performance, and value in an intermediate soprano saxophone. If you’re ready to take the next step in your development as a saxophonist, it’s an excellent choice. 

A perfect blend of features, playability, and value

Unpretentious yet masterful, the Yamaha YSS-475II soprano saxophone is a near-perfect blend of features, playability, and value. It has many of the hallmarks of a Yamaha pro sax, including a high F# key, an adjustable thumb rest, and smooth, consistent action. To facilitate proper technique and increase playing comfort, its Bb spatula key is derived from the design of the YSS-875 EXHG Custom professional soprano. Its optimized keywork provides a light, confident feel to facilitate the execution of fast, challenging passages. For the second-generation YSS-475, the body bore has been redesigned for improved intonation and optimized air flow, while the vent tubing has been redesigned to minimize noise from lower vent key action. Additionally, a new key post rib plate design provides increased strength and durability. 

An intermediate saxophone that brings out your individuality

Saxophones designed for the up-and-coming player should provide a smooth transition from from your student model while introducing professional features that enhance the myriad of playing techniques, from embouchure to fingering, that collectively produce the unique sound you are developing. As accessible as it is exceptional, the Yamaha YSS-475II accomplishes all this, and more; making it an ideal intermediate soprano saxophone that will advance you on your musical journey. Indeed, many seasoned pros credit the critical time spent with their Yamaha intermediate model as foundational to their successful careers. 

Yamaha saxophones: designed and built for artists

In 1967, Yamaha debuted their first saxophones: the YAS-1 alto and the YTS-1 tenor. Both found favor in the sax player community. In fact, jazz great John Coltrane, who built his reputation on the tenor and soprano, played the prototype YAS-1 gifted him by Yamaha extensively during his 1966 tour of Japan. In 1972, Yamaha partnered with renowned classical saxophonist Dr. Eugene Rousseau to develop a new line of professional-class saxophones. After arduous years of prototyping, testing, and revisions, Yamaha introduced the fruits of their labor: the YAS-62 alto, YTS-62 tenor, and the YSS-62 soprano. Designed with three guiding principles in mind — superior acoustics, top-notch mechanisms, and artistic feel — the 62 series saxophones represented a milestone for Yamaha, setting the company on the path to becoming one of the world’s most-respected saxophone makers 

A solid investment in your musical future

Today, Yamaha continues to adhere to the principles established during the creation of the original 62 series nearly a half century ago, providing saxophonists with fine instruments to inspire their artistry and meet their technical demands. We are proud to offer you Yamaha’s distinguished saxophone line, which offers outstanding value at every level, from student models to sophisticated professional saxophones heard in premier venues and concert halls around the globe. Widely recommended by teachers of intermediate students ready to step up from their first saxophones, the Yamaha YSS-475II is a workhorse of school bands and wind ensembles worldwide. From its graceful bell flare to its elegant laser engraving, the YSS-475II is a delight to behold and a pleasure to play. Expertly crafted by skilled Yamaha artisans, the YSS-475II intermediate soprano saxophone is a solid investment in your musical future.
