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).

Yamaha, immer gut
AlexandraL, 19.06.2012
Für meine kleinen Hände suchte ich ein entsprechendes Instrument. Das Yamaha hat meine Erwartungen voll erfüllt.

Schön verarbeitet, tolle Ansprache, glasklarer Klang. Für mich etwas zu "sauber", da ich den etwas "rauchigeren" Klang mag. Daher sende ich es zurück.

Aber, wie gesagt, ein sehr gutes Instrument. Für den höheren Anspruch auf jeden Fall zu empfehlen.
