    Got one of these beautiful Saxes on 4th July and I am in love with my Golden Baby and totally addicted to learning to play it to the best of my ability. I started playing Clarinet when I was 9 and love that too but always hankered after a Sax,well I am a very happy Man so thank You Yamaha

    This is a great student model horn, i bought this for my nephew a while back, he loves, much better than his jupiter 567 (bad intonation). This was a really good present for him, he really liked it am i am sure any starter will to.

    My Yamaha has taken me right from Grade 1 through to Grade 8 and it still performs just as well as it did for Grade 1 at Grade 8, which is something a lot of "student" saxes cant do. I found that once Ive tuned it up, it never goes out of tune which is always very helpful! The tone we produce is of a very high quality, bearing in mind its considered a students saxophone and we use the Yamaha 4C Mouthpiece which is plastic! I would really recommend it if you are looking to buy a consistent, accurate and beautiful saxophone- Ive seen lots of different saxes and in terms of looks it is also definitely one of the nicest ones available! And after 5 years of having it, it still plays perfectly- producing a pure and stunning tone!
