Improved Neck Receiver and B-C# Connection

The Yamaha YAS280S alto saxophone includes a number of improvements from previous already great 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 thus gives a much more confident sound in lower register of the instrument.

Perfect for Students

This Yamaha sets the level for student instruments. A rugged construction makes it more durable when in use with younger players through the use of 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

This Yamaha Alto Sax doesn't just come on its own. Included with the instrument is a set of accessories that enable you to get going straight away. A Yamaha 4C mouthpiece along with reed and ligature allow for you to instantly 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.

Ex Demonstration Saxophone

Please note that this instrument is an ex-demonstration model instrument and has been used in our showroom to show customers in our York store. Although there are very minor scratches to the finish, which can be seen in the light, the instrument itself works completely as new.

This is a great opportunity to purchase a new instrument at a fraction of the price.
