Description More info Reviews  
The Yamaha YAS280 student alto saxophone is one of the most reliable, well engineered and popular student saxophones currently on the market. As an upgrade model of the wildly popular Yamaha YAS275, this instrument now benefits from a sturdier neck receiver and a better keywork connection between the low B and C#.



The YAS280 is beautifully produced. It has a sturdy well designed body which offers little resistance, making the instrument very free blowing, and is also comparatively lightweight. The gold lacquer is incredibly well applied which gives a smooth and clean finish.

Low notes on saxophones are some of the more tricky sounds to produce accurately, as the extremities are on any instrument, but this improved keywork helps produce a clean and accurate note. They key work itself is ergonomically designed, so that the relevant notes simply appear to fall under the fingers. This model also benefits from an adjustable thumb hook which makes finding the right playing position extremely easy.

It is an instrument which we always try to keep in stock. The demand for it, both to purchase and rent, is huge and the higher price tag can, in some cases, save you money as it negates the need to choose an intermediate instrument before progressing onto something more professional in specification. The used value of this instrument is also stable so upgrading is always easy and second hand values are reasonably high.

The instrument includes the well known 4C mouthpiece, ligature, sling and cleaning materials and is presented in a solid, well made case which has a large pocket for sheet music and other accessories.

Each saxophone sold here at Chamberlain Music is subjected to a detailed set-up. The instrument is also play tested prior to dispatch which ensures that your new Saxophone is ready to play straight from the case.
