Yamaha YAS280 Alto Saxophone
The Yamaha YAS-280 saxophone provides beginners with a reliable instrument to start playing on. They offer a characteristically bright saxophone sound with excellent intonation and some surprisingly high quality features for an entry-level instrument.
The YAS-280 is lightweight and ergonomic offering a comfortable playing experience. The neck receiver on the body of the saxophone has been refined with improved rigidity - it's firmly set in place with a durable tightening screw. On the base of the instrument, the low B - C# mechanism has been modified to ensure full and consistent closure of the pads. This prevents air leakage and thus gives a more confident sound in the YAS-280's lower register (which also contributes to the improved consistency in intonation of the YAS-280's lower register). An adjustable thumb-rest to allow for precise and comfortable hand and fingering position helping learners to play more comfortably for longer durations. Thanks to improved connectors and bracing, the YAS-280 is also more durable than its predecessor.
New neck receiver with a durable screw: A redesigned neck receiver promotes a quick response and ease of play while also increasing the durability of the mechanism.
Improved Low B-C# connection: An improved mechanism from low B-C# ensures the consistent closing of the low C# key and promotes a clear response from notes in the low range of the instrument.
Adjustable thumb-rest: All Yamaha saxophones feature an adjustable thumb-rest to allow for precise and comfortable hand and fingering position.
