The Yamaha YTS-280 Bb tenor saxophone offers you the perfect start or upgrade because it is designed with the beginner in mind.
It can complete the grades with ease and is a very reliable, and affordable, choice for doublers looking for good quality on a budget.
Relatively light-weight and ergonomically shaped, for a tenor, you will find it relatively easy to hold and to play. The intonation is perfect, as you would expect from Yamaha, and it is easy to get a great sound. The Yamaha design offers beginners optimum support, thus greatly assisting both learning progress and creativity.
Based on the highly recommended YTS-275 saxophones the new YTS-280 has been even further enhanced with a new, more stable neck receiver and a new low B-C# connection for better adjustment.
