Yamaha 280 Tenor Sax
The Yamaha 280 Tenor Sax offers a perfect introduction to the world of the saxophone. Whether a beginning student, or an advanced player needing a doubling instrument, it offers surprisingly high quality features at a student model price. Itis relatively light-weight and ergonomically shaped, making it easy to hold and to play. The Yamaha design offers beginners optimum support, greatly assisting both learning progress and creativity.
The YTS-280 Tenor Sax succeeds its incredibly popular predecessor, the YTS-275. Based on the YTS-275 saxophone, it is even further enhanced with a new, more stable neck receiver and a new low B-C# connection for better adjustment. Most Yamaha saxophones are made in Japan. However, this particular model is made in Indonesia to keep the production costs down and enable them to offer this sax at a low price.
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.
All Yamaha saxophones feature an adjustable thumb-rest to allow for precise and comfortable hand and fingering position.
