Jan. Als Einsteigerinstrument hat mir die nette Dame dort - hat sich wirklich sehr gut um mich gekümmert - ein YAS mit einem Rico 2,5 Blatt in. Ein gutes YAMAHA Yas Das meist verkaufte Saxophon auf der Welt. das sich seit Jahren bestens bewährt hat. Ein qualitativ sehr gutes Instrument für einen. Als Schutz für das Originaletui z.B: Yamaha YAS Schutz vor Feuchtigkeit und Kratzern und bequem als Rucksack zu tragen.
See addendum below for further notes. I noted that the sling ring seemed to be of a rather small diameter. This might present a problem for those players who prefer to use a sling with a locking arrangement on the hook as I thoroughly recommend.
Just make sure you try the sling out before you buy it. Subsequent testing has proved that there is a subtle difference - the new crook gives a warmer tone.
Some people have considered the student Yamahas to be a touch on the bright side tonewise, so this new crook evens the score somewhat, though I found that putting the crook from a YAS25 onto the lifted the tone out considerably without detriment to the tuning.
This instrument has the typical Yamaha sound - clear and concise, with a neutral to bright tone and bags of projection, coupled with a very vibrant feel.
Tuning is good throughout the range, the inclusion of a top F key is useful, as is an adjustable thumbrest.
Once again Yamaha sets the standards. Even with some excellent horns coming out of Taiwan the Yamaha maintains its position as the horn to beat at the price - and any prospective saxophone player should consider it an essential addition to their list of instruments to try out.
Many of them seem to have problems with the bell notes - and this is due to the bell being knocked off line. This will close both the B and the Bb cups and if all is well you should see complete darkness around the tone holes.
On the left is a shot down the bell of a soprano sax. If you have a problem it will most likely show up as the distinct arcs of light seen coming in from the front of the cups The movement of the bell stay has implications with regard to the glued bottom-bow joint.
Any movement of the bell will stress the bottom bow of the saxophone and most likely result in the cracking of the glued joint, which may then leak.
As for why this is occurring, it may be that Yamaha have changed the alloy used for the bell brace for a softer one - and with less support the bell is prone to being knocked out of alignment.
It may also be that the glued joint is less strong than on previous models, and it may now not be strong enough to provide additional support of the bell brace.
I have written to Yamaha and asked if any such changes have been made to the design - I have yet to hear back from them. Either way, a leak as described above will require the bell stay to be bent back into shape to realign the bell, and the bottom bow will have to be removed so that the glued seal can be replaced.
I received a reply to my email sent to Yamaha regarding this issue, and they tell me that they were aware of the problem and that it has now been corrected.
Unfortunately this horn exhibited the same problem as previous examples, with the bell having been knocked slightly off line.
I shall be watching out for more examples. Yet another came in for a bell job - though this time the horn had very clearly taken a significant whack.
The client, as the parent of the player, was somewhat surprised when I pointed out the damage - and much speculation ensued as to quite how the instrument came to be so damaged.
Upon returning the horn after completion of the work I placed the instrument in the case and closed the catches I tried it a few times and noted the case not closing properly, hence this addendum.
Not satisfied with those reviews? Request a new review. Our members also liked: Sort by most recent most useful. This is pretty much what you call the young person sax or the student sax.
A lot of younger kids in middle school and when they first start out in band start with using this sax. Its sound is one of a kind and for the price of this sax you can beat it.
Almost all school systems have an option with a musical instrument company that you can rent or purchase this sax.
Most of them when you purchase or rent will come with a solid case as well that will protect your instrument from any damage. Overall the Yamaha YAS is a great instrument and a great buy at an affordable price that any parent, musician or student can afford.
There are no other models buy Yamaha that are cheaper in price but great in quality! Did you find this review helpful? I use this saxophone for 8 years now, I switched to the tenor of the professional but I have yet to change the budget for this one.
In conclusion, this saxophone has a value great price even though there may be better at Stagg for example, but this sax is a great value and is an instrument entirely correct.
APRS beginners have a Jupiter which was in April through the end in quality and accuracy, but me, I admit, though dpann for prt 2 years thank you very much to..!!
