The YAS-280S alto saxophone is the perfect student saxophone, designed with the young beginner in mind. The YAS-280S is relatively light-weight and ergonomically shaped, making it easy to hold and to play. The intonation is perfect, as you would expect from Yamaha, and it is easy to get a great sound. The Yamaha design offers beginners optimum support, greatly assisting both learning progress and creativity.

The YAS-280S succeeds its incredibly popular predecessor, the YAS-275. Based on the YAS-275S saxophone, the YAS-280S is even further enhanced with a new, more stable neck receiver and a new low B-C# connection for better adjustment.

Full details and specifications can be found by clicking in the link above (below the Yamaha logo).

Features

  • New neck receiver - A redesigned neck receiver promotes a quick response and ease of play while also increasing the durability of the mechanism. It also features a stronger retaining screw.
  • 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 position.

The Yamaha YAS-280S is an excellent student alto saxophone that is more than capable of allowing you to reach all grades.
