Yamaha, always good

AlexandraL, 19.06.2012
For my little hands, I looked for a suitable instrument. The Yamaha has fully met my expectations.

Beautifully processed, great response, crystal clear sound. For me something to "clean", since I like the somewhat "smokier" sound. Therefore, I send it back.

But, as I said, a very good instrument. For the higher claim in any case recommendable.

Professional saxophone for mid-price.

ReinholdB, 30.01.2013
I bought the saxophone as the successor of my 3 years TAS 350.

It is very easy to play and has a rich sound.

The processing is very good and "one has what in hand". So far I played a Meyer mouthpiece, which I also here instead of the enclosed Yamaha 4C use; As does the Harry Hartmann Fiberreed "M". All in all, a very recommendable saxophone, the limits of which I have not yet reached.

You already feel a bit like a professional.
