|The YAS 280 saxophone offers a perfect start because its is designed with the young beginner in mind.
Relatively light-weight and ergonomically shaped it is 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, thus greatly assisting both learning progress and creativity.
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.
A redesigned neck receiver promotes a quick response and ease of play while also increasing the durability of the mechanism.
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.
