Comments from customers who bought this item:
Yamaha are universally acknowledged as a leader in the musical world. They are known for their attention to detail and precision this has earned the respect of students as well as professional musicians from around the world. Yamaha's combination of craftsmanship and leading technology are transferred into the production of every instrument.
The Yamaha YAS280 is finished in a highly alluring gold lacquer. The lacquer is used to produce a warmer, darker sound as well as its hard wearing and sustainability properties. The shine of the gold lacquer offers a high-end look and provides confidence in the saxophone.
The neck on the YAS280 has been re-designed so that it gives more strength to the mechanism and therefore making it more durable and also quicker response times for more fluid playing. An improved mechanism for the B-C# ensures a good seal on the C# key and a better, clearer response. The re-design to the thumb rest means it is now adjustable in order to accommodate most hand sizes. This would therefore be a big advantage to students who are wanting to develop their technique and adjust the thumb rest as the player matures.
Along with the YAS280 saxophone itself comes an AS-4C plastic mouthpiece and cap which is a highly recommended upgrade mouthpiece suggested by teachers. The mouthpiece is made from a high quality phenol resin and it offers a consistent response to support a student's development. Based on the Yamaha Custom series, this mouthpiece has a shorter facing making it easier for students to produce a rich timbre. Also included is a case to protect the saxophone during transit.
