The World's favourite student sax.

The Yamaha YTS280 is generally regarded as one of the best student horns on the market. For getting started and even as a budget horn for a more advanced player- these are an ideal choice.


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.

Product Reviews

The YTS 280 is widely regarded as the best student tenor sax in the World and I cannot disagree. The build quality, tuning and ergonomics are the best in class and better than many more expensive saxes. As with most student saxes the tone is on the light and bright side - there has to be a reason to buy the more expensive models! Phill Straker (Sax.co.uk)

    As a student horn, the 280 is the best in its category and is certainly worth its seemingly large price tag over other budget tenors. What it really benefits from is its free blowing nature that is ideal for students and its ability to cope with pretty much any modern mouthpiece; the 4C that comes as standard is brilliant quality but this horns tone can be transformed with a pro-quality piece meaning its capable of a very high standard of play indeed. If Yamahas brief was to create a top quality student horn then theyve succeeded and then some!
