  • Specs

The YAS/YTS-280 saxophones offer a perfect start because they are designed with the young beginner in mind. Relatively light-weight and ergonomically shaped, they are 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 YAS/YTS-275 saxophones the new YAS/YTS-280 are even further enhanced with a new, more stable neck receiver and a new low B-C# connection for better adjustment.

New neck receiver with a durable screw

A redesigned neck receiver promotes a quick response and ease of play while also increasing the durability of the mechanism.

Improved Low B-C# connection

An improved mechanism from low B-C# ensures the consistent closing of the low C# key and promotes a clear response from notes in the low range of the instrument.

Adjustable thumb-rest

All Yamaha saxophones feature an adjustable thumb-rest to allow for precise and comfortable hand and fingering position.
