Review Yamaha YAS-280 alto saxophone by Harry Bakker Muziek The saxophone produces an even, clear, full sound, tunes perfectly and is very comfortable to hold. Easy to use and feels very solid. Compared to other saxophones in this price range, the YAS-280 feels like a professional saxophone, very solid. The Yamaha YAS-280 has a relatively thin wall, which makes the saxophone a bit lighter than most other brands. The application (valves) are also suitable for smaller hands. This makes the saxophone suitable for both adults and children. The Yamaha YAS-280 is a very reliable instrument and requires little maintenance. Due to the high quality of this saxophone, it has an expected long lifespan, which ensures a relatively high residual value if you want to trade it in or sell it later. We are always happy to trade in the YAS-280! What does Yamaha itself say about the YAS-280: The Yamaha 280 saxophones provide beginners with a reliable instrument to play.
