Improved Neck Receiver and B-C# Connection

The Yamaha YAS280 alto saxophone includes a number of improvements from previous models. The neck receiver on the body of the saxophone has been improved to be more rigid and is 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 leaking and gives a much more confident sound in lower registers of the instrument.

Perfect for Students

This Yamaha sets the level for student instruments. A rugged construction makes it more durable when in use by younger players through improved connections and braces. An adjustable thumb-rest ensures that even small hands are able to reach all the notes without unnecessary stretching, which proves tiresome after long periods of playing.

Everything You Need

Included with the Yamaha Alto Sax is a set of accessories that enable you to get going straight away. A Yamaha 4C mouthpiece along with reed and ligature allow you to play the instrument as soon as it comes out of the box. The 4C mouthpiece is suitable for all styles of playing and great for beginners. The lightweight hard case is also included for transporting and storing the saxophone. It includes a carry handle, shoulder straps and a multitude of storage pockets for accessories.
