Product Information

The Yamaha YAS-280 beginner Sax offers a perfect introduction to the world of the saxophone. Whether a student beginner, or an advanced player needing a doubling instrument, the 280 series saxes offer surprisingly high quality features at a student model price. 

This is the top selling student/intermediate sax in the world. Made to the highest standards the 280 still outperforms everything around it. The design of the crook is based on the Professional 62 model to give a flexible, responsive tone. We were really impressed with the YAS-280 in our recordings as it had impeccable tuning and a free blowing sound that is unparalleled at this price range.

New beginners will find this sax easy to play and produce a secure tone on, advancing players will enjoy the quality tone and positive action. Here at Dawkes Music we professionally set-up each YAS-280 in our Workshops to our Platinum standard ensuring perfect blowing and action.

My 9 year old son enjoys playing this instrument and its a great step up from his rental Alpha sax which he started with four months ago.

Quality! It sounds great and looks great. I\'m really happy I went for the Yamaha. It\'s made returning to the instrument a joy. Thank you Dawkes Music. Having the savings from the rental made this more possible to me. A real treat!

If I have any difficulties with it I trust that the service will be as good as it has been, Amazing!
