The Yamaha YAS 280 saxophones provide beginners with a reliable instrument to start playing on, but is also a brilliant budget instrument for a more advanced player too. This is the top selling student/intermediate sax in the world and for very good reason.
The 280 is a sax that really stands out from the pack when it comes to student horns. With its smooth and sleekly designed key work, easy-blowing character, and overall responsiveness, this is a sax that is very hard to beat. Add to that the Yamaha 4C mouthpiece included as standard, rugged build quality, a good quality case, and the fact they hold their value exceptionally well, this is very much the instrument of choice in its price range. The 280 also plays with a characteristically bright saxophone sound with excellent intonation and some surprisingly high quality features for an entry-level instrument thanks to Yamaha’s exceptional craftsmanship.
