Very good instrument
etc-etc, 08.04.2019
The saxophone arrived fine out-of-box except for the octave key which was riding a little high and in released position was about 1 mm above equal height with the thumb rest. All notes in standard range respond well, in tune and clear. Altissimo range is more easily accessible as high F# key is provided. The side C and Bb seem a little undervented. The G# pad sometimes sticks closed the next day after playing as it often does on other saxophones. The neck collar jaws are much improved from earlier versions - they are beefy enough to not bend shut when the neck screw is tightened (that was an issue on YAS-23 where the neck collar jaws were much thinner). The bell when looked on from player's side, while parallel to the main body, is facing somewhat to the left which appears to be a compact design feature, as all low stack keys respond and seal properly. All in all, a well made, sturdy and easy to play instrument.

Very satisfied, more than expected!
MajidM, 06.02.2021
I purchased Yamaha YAS-280 Set. I am new in saxophone and I want one day be able to play it in our church. I can say punctual delivery and the quality of instrument and accessories were more than I expected. Beside the saxophone itself, I saw the quality of accessories specially sax & music stands were better than I expected. For me this set really deserve 5 star.

Good qualty sax for your money
Michael C. 753, 21.07.2013
Bought this saxophone when I started to play I now have a Yanagisawa tenor but always go back to this little baby for my alto fix... it's very well put together sounds very nice for the price and is good value for money. It's lasted me a year now and I've never had any hassle with valves sticking or any other issue for that matter. Great saxophone for the learner or intermediate player or even beyond.

Great for intermedium or beginer saxophone players!
Luís C., 13.06.2015
This was the first saxophone I bought and I love it. It is a great instrument, I like the feel, the gold, and the touch of the keys.
I know it is not the best saxophone in the world but it has a very good quality-price relation.
The sound is very good acording to the price I paid.
There was only one thing that I switched and that was the mouthpiece, the mouthpiece was a little too closed for me so I exchanged for a Yamaha 7C.
I also recomend the Rico jazz select 3S that go very well with this saxophone.
I have been using it in my auditions and it is being a great success, the sound is clear and everyone loves the music.
Overall you should buy this set, it helped me very much.
Thank you!
