The YTS280 is a sax which really stands out from the pack when it comes to student horns- with its smooth keywork, easy blowing character and overall responsiveness this is a sax which is very hard to beat. Add to that the Yamaha 4C mouthpiece included as standard, rugged build quality, very good case and the fact they hold their value exceptionally well and this is very much the instrument of choice in its price range.
The brass body is left unlacquered and plated with beautiful bright silver plating. The lack of lacquer does mean occasional cleaning with a silver cloth is required in order to maintain the finish. However, the added layer of resonant precious metal gives more projection and a wonderful extra dimension to the sound.
