Yamaha YAS 280 Alto saxophone
The Yamaha YAS 280 alto saxophone offer a perfect start because it is designed with the young beginner in mind. Relatively light-weight and ergonomically shaped, it’s easy to hold and to play.
Based on the highly recommended YAS-275 saxophones the new YAS-280 is even further enhanced with a new, more stable neck receiver and a new low B-C# connection for better adjustment.
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, thus greatly assisting both learning progress and creativity.
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.
All Yamaha saxophones feature an adjustable thumb-rest to allow for precise and comfortable hand and fingering position.
