The YCL-450 intermediate model clarinet incorporates some of the distinct qualities of Yamaha's professional and custom clarinets. One of these features is a 65mm barrel design that produces a focused tone and quick response. Players looking to “step-up” their performance will do just that with this instrument.
The YAS280 saxophone offers a perfect start or upgrade because they are designed with the student in mind. Relatively light-weight and ergonomically shaped, they are easy to hold and to play.
The intonation is perfect, as you would expect from Yamaha, and it is easy to get a great sound. The Yamaha design offers students optimum support, thus greatly assisting both learning progress and creativity.
Based on the highly recommended YAS275 saxophone the new YAS280 is even further enhanced with a new, more stable neck receiver and a new low B-C# connection for better adjustment.
A superb starter saxophone in its own class! Double award winner – Music Industries Association.
The Horn Classic is becoming a classic! Look at the quotes below which speak for themselves. This is a great starter sax and highly recommended.
“The sound of the “The Horn” is warm and has a good quality of tone. It has uniformity from the low notes to the high. It has to be said that its sound is delightful and characterised by the perfect delivery of a wide range of tonal colours. This saxophone comes close to the professional instrument but remains at the price of students.
