Awesome

Luís C., 13.06.2015
I liked the product very much. All the ad-ons of the set were amazing and are very useful, I'm talking about the metronome and also the instrument holder.
I also liked the sax very much and it has a good price-quality relation.
Overall, I think it's a great set if you are a beginer or an intermedium saxophone player.
5 stars!

First class student and second instrument

Wolfgang S. 204, 26.11.2012
I have to admit, I am preloaded ... 20 years ago I had a Yamaha Tenorsax (from the then 6 series), for several years I play the YSS 475 in the Saxquartett and by the way a Stage Custom Drumset - also from Yamaha. In this respect, I am absolutely professing "Yamahaist".
Since there is always literature for Saxquartett, in which the first voice is written for Alto instead of Sopransax, I was now looking for an alto sax as a second instrument for the occasional appearance; Moreover, my son, who has been learning a saxophone for a year, should get 50%.
So much for the prehistory.
I ordered the YAS 280 with the Hintergedanken, if necessary also the 480 to try, however, I liked it so much, that I have kept it the same.

The case makes a very clean processed and thoughtful impression, offers plenty of storage space inside and outside, has two handles as well as retractable straps and is also very light.
The initial equipment is passable. Wipers for body and S-bow are not included (Tip: order now); The included belt I will only keep as spare, since it is not padded at the neck.
The horn itself is top processed (just for the price class) - a marching fork holder is the turn, the thumb holder is adjustable.

After a week of familiarization we had "our" first joint performance - three Préludes of Debussy, set for church organ and alto saxophone. What can I say - the intonation is absolutely faultless, the speech is first class; Especially with Pianissimo positions in the area of ??Hoch-F, this has paid off.
In the lower border area I need for sure still some exercise to make even quiet places clean - but that is certainly because I come from the clarinet or the Sopransax.
The mouthpiece is very well adapted to the saxophone - here Yamaha seems to have a good hand with the 4C (as with the soprano).

The sound is quite pleasant, almost warm in the combination of sax, mouthpiece, sheet and musician; In no case thin.
Even my son can handle it right away.

Conclusion:
A first class student and second instrument. If you play longer and / or more frequently, you can still move upwards and still have a look at the 4 series (and beyond). In this price class, however, the YAS 280 receives a unqualified recommendation.
