Yamaha YTS280 Tenor Saxophone - Student

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 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.

Saxophonists who wish to take up the tenor saxophone will find that this is the easiest model to learn on. The YTS-280 has many of the features of the YAS-280 including the benefit of being extremely lightweight. Many manufacturers do not see the tenor saxophone as an instrument for younger players, and therefore position the keywork too far apart.

We professionally set-up each YTS280 in our Workshops to our Platinum standard ensuring perfect blowing and action.


Student Model, Supplied with case, Yamaha accessory pack, Yamaha mouthpiece, ligature and cap.

I recently bought a Yamaha YTS tenor sax from Dawkes. Simply a wonderful sax and came with a great starter kit and bag. I had plenty of time to try it out before deciding it was the one I wanted.
