Lovely instrument.
Horseman, 28.03.2018
This is a great instrument. I needed a tenor that wouldn?t let me down without paying a fortune. You can?t go wrong with a Yamaha be it sax, bike, drums... Mine played great from top to bottom straight out of the box as did another I tested that led me to order this. I am playing for a living so I needed something that would play well without the big price tag. This horn does that. Plays in tune, lovely tone. Not too heavy. The key layout is a lot better than my old tenors. Below low C you can play faster parts easily whatever way they have set up those keys. The whole package is high quality. Beautiful finish. Nice modern case with loads of room inside for your mic and cable, multiple mouthpieces etc. The outer pocket has room for my laptop and cables and a bluetooth speaker so no messing around with two bags heading to the practice rooms, The backpack straps are comfy and balanced so you?re not twisting your back from having all the weight on one shoulder like a Gator case I had.

You can?t go wrong with this horn. For a student or for gigging with. There seems to be nothing lacking.

Very Nice Sax
05.06.2014
I got the sax for over 2 weeks now, and i can tell you right away that this is a very good saxophone. It's got a rich sound from fog horn to saxissimo and the keys are very wel placed and so easy to play. It feels very sturdy, bud i can't tell this so fast for shure, bud Yamaha lives up his name so i'm not worried aboud that. Very nice :)

Wunderbares Instrument, tolle Beratung
05.08.2016
Seit Jahren habe ich geträumt, ein Tenor Sax zu spielen. Diese Jahr habe ich mir das nötige Geld zusammengespart. Und bin dann etwa 1000km hin und zurück durch Deutschland getourt, um mich bei euch beraten zu lassen, Und das hat sich echt gelohnt! Euer Berater wusste offenbar genau, was für ein Instrument ich als Anfänger brauche, im Grunde war ich aber nicht überrascht, dass es auf ein Yamaha-Instrument hinaus lief. Die sind - egal ob man eine Blockflöte oder ein 150 PS Motorrad kaufen will - im Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis kaum zu schlagen.
Ich wusste nicht, ob ich das Teil so einfach spielen kann, aber nach drei Wochen bin ich jetzt gemäß Lehrbuch in der 7./8. Woche, und es hört sich schon super an. Mein Hund flieht jedenfalls nicht mehr in die letzte Ecke, wenn ich mir das Sax umhänge. Kurz und gut: An dem Instrument werde ich noch viel Freude haben, das steht fest.
Dass ich auf eurem riesigen Gelände gute zwei Stunden gebraucht habe, um mein Auto wiederzufinden, ist noch eine andere Geschichte; beim nächsten Mal passiert mir das nicht mehr.

P.S.: Vor etwa einem guten Jahr habe ich per Internet bei Euch eine "Ovation" gekauft. Eine Gitarre, wie sie besser nicht sein kann!

Macht weiter so!

Gruß

Superbe instrument
SAX24, 19.01.2019
Ah je le voulais depuis quelques mois ce SAX ! Comme débutant j'ai mis du temps à me décider, même sous les conseils d'un copain pro.
Et puis j'ai osé le commander. Il est entré chez moi comme un objet précieux. Thomann l'avait traité comme tel dans son double emballage isolé.
Le premier contact s'est si bien passé que je ne peux plus le quitter. L'accès pour un débutant comme moi est assez intuitif, les premiers sons encourageants et les premières mélodies prometteuses.
Pianiste à la base, j'aime la qualité de cet instrument à la fois précieux et imposant. L'émotion est là même sur quelques notes..
Il est livré dans une housse rigide, très bien capitonnée avec plein de poches et des bretelles façon sac à dos.
Le seul bémol est la sangle pour moi qui n'est pas rembourrée et qui me cisaille un peu. Mais je vais en commander une supplémentaire.
Je pense que le rapport qualité prix de cet instrument est excellent.
