Yamaha YAS 280 Student Alto Saxophone
The Yamaha YAS-280 is an alto saxophone designed with the young player in mind. Lightweight, easy to hold and play, perfect intonation, great sound; everything a student would hope for in an instrument.
Building on the success of the YAS-275 alto sax, the YAS-280 features a new neck receiver, improved Low B-C# mechanism and an adjustable thumb-rest. This is a great feature for students as it allows for precision and comfort with hand positioning on the instrument.
A Yamaha AS-4C mouthpiece, basic care kit and sturdy zippered backpack style case with 2 handles are supplied with the saxophone.
Upgraded version of the YAS26
More suitable for long term use- usable in higher grades of exam with addition of auxiliary high F#.
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.
