Solides Saxophon in der Mittelklasse
dbiener, 27.02.2020
Ich habe über 30 Jahre Musik im Amateurbereich gemacht,
Trompete und Saxophon in verschiedenen Orchestern und Kapellen.
Nach einigen Jahren der musikalischen Abstinenz wollte ich mir wieder ein Saxophon zulegen und habe mich für das YAS-480 entschieden. Den Kauf habe ich nicht bereut. Mit dem Saxophon hat man ein solides gut verarbeitetest Instrument in der Hand.
Das Saxophon hat eine gute Ansprache über alle Register und in Verbindung mit einem Meyer New York Alto Sax 6M Mundstück einen schönen nicht zu aggressiven jazzigen Sound. Ich habe meine Freude am Musizieren wieder zurückgewonnen.

Que du bonheur
TOF31, 27.12.2019
Quel plaisir à jouer un saxophone de bonne qualité avec un son rond et chaud (surtout après un sax chi...ois) mais bon c’était pour essayer .
Quand au service Thomann, impeccable comme d'habitude, envoie rapide et sérieux ( alors que j'avais un peu peur quand on connait la fragilité d'un saxophone).

Nach einem halben Jahr Unterricht mit Leihinstrument hat meine Tochter sich dieses Instrument ausgesucht. Sie spielt sehr gern und gut darauf. Ihr Lehrer bekam leuchtende Augen, als er das Instrument sah und hörte und er ist immer wieder begeistert von diesem Instrument.
