The Yamaha YSS-475 is the best intermediate soprano in the world for one simple reason. It’s not an intermediate soprano. It is a pro soprano made with Yamaha 62 soprano tooling, and only slightly cheapened. So you get one of the best sopranos ever made, in a less expensive iteration. Great deal! This horn is in excellent condition, and includes having the already good pads tuned up as part of the sale. It comes in a cool hard case that is like the high-end BAM Trekking, but is Yamaha made. Really great horn for the money.
