Yamaha standard saxophones make fantastic first rental instruments for beginning band students. Designed to exacting tolerances, with the beginner in mind, Yamaha standard saxophones offer unrivaled playing comfort and durability to help develop positive habits, and provide long-lasting quality.
The YAS/YTS-280 saxophones offer a perfect start because they are designed with the young beginner in mind. Relatively light-weight and ergonomically shaped, they are easy to hold and to play.
