Yamaha YAS280 Student Saxophone

The YAS280 entry level Alto Saxophone is the new-improved version of the long-standing and bestselling YAS275. Yamaha have carried over the theme of high quality build, reliability and excellent intonation in its new model, making the YAS280 the leading choice for beginner saxophonists around the world. Yamaha instruments, including the YAS280 are lightweight and ergonomic offering a comfortable playing experience which makes it an ideal choice for beginners. 

There are a couple of new features on the YAS280 including a new sturdier neck receiver which offers fast response and well as added stability when in use. Yamaha have also made improvements to the low B-C# connection so closing the key is easier and as a result the low notes are a lot more rock solid. The YAS280 also features an adjustable thumb rest to help maximise comfort for the player. Its overall intonation is superb, which offers a lot of encouragement to beginners. 

All in all, the YAS280 is the ideal choice for the beginner who expects no compromise on quality – it really is a premium beginner saxophone; hence it is more expensive than some other student models, but will enable the player to reach at least a grade 5+ standard without having to swap to an intermediate saxophone. The outfit is completed with a Yamaha ligature, Yamaha mouthpiece cap, neck sling, reed and is beautifully housed in a quality, protective, fitted case.
