very nice sax
Les Taylor, 01.08.2018
His little baby is fantastic. The silver shine is very attractive and the sound is not like a "student" horn. after 35 years clarinete and saxophone experience I can tell you that this Yamaha 280s is a very nice and correct partner on the stage for a pro musitian and also perfect for beginners. Absolutely recommended!
Yamaha & Thomann thank you! again :)

Quality saxophone

As a beginner I made a safe choice and I don?t regret it. Easy blowing and good ergonomics. Buttons are easy to push. Perfect for beginners.

Guki, 19.08.2020
Ich habe ein qualitativ gutes Einsteigerinstrument für den Start mit dem Saxophonspiel gesucht. Das YAS-280 erfüllt meine Ansprüche voll und ganz. Die Verarbeitung ist tadellos und die Ansprache von Beginn an leicht, was auch das mitgelieferte 4c Mundstück unterstützt. Lediglich das ebenfall beigelegte Rico Blatt habe ich gleich mal durch ein Vandoren ersetzt.
Das YAS-280 ist perfekt verarbeitet und kommt einem sehr praktischen Koffer, in welchem es sehr gut sitzt (ein sehr wichtiges Feature, da Bewegung im Koffer schnell zu mechanischen Problemen führt). Das Instrument hat eine sehr gute Ansprache und einen voluminösen, vollen, weichen Klang. Es ist sowohl für Jazz als auch für Klassik geeignet.
Ich würde empfehlen, das mitgelieferte Halsband durch ein hochwertigeres zu ersetzen.
