The Yamaha Expertise
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#.
Built to Last
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. Finished with gold lacquer the YAS280 has a smooth and clean finish.
Yamaha's superior engineering allows even the trickiest notes on the saxophone to be produced with ease. The keywork 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.
This instrument really is worth every penny; it's high quality finish and great sound will last you all the way up to your first professional sax with no need for an intermediate model!
What's in the Box?
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 comes with a professional set-up. The instrument is also play tested prior to despatch which ensures that your new saxophone is ready to play straight from the case.
