The Yamaha YAS280 will give you the best possible start on the alto saxophone. As expected from Yamaha, the intonation is perfect, and it is easy to get a great sound. The neck on the YAS280 has been re-designed so that it gives more strength to the mechanism and therefore making it more durable.
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.
The Yamaha YAS280 is finished in a highly alluring silver plating. The plating is used to produce a brighter sound as well as its hard wearing and sustainability properties. The shine of the silver offers a high-end look and provides confidence in the saxophone.
Included with the Yamaha YAS280 alto saxophone is a lightweight moulded case. This case offers tough protection for your instrument to ensure it stays in the best possible condition. The case also includes a shoulder strap and backpack straps for easy transportation between musical events.
The facing of the included 4C mouthpiece is slightly shorter than that of the Custom series making it easier to play. This is essential for beginning students to achieve a rich saxophone sound. They also are available in a variety of sizes, to suit the needs players of many different styles.
