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)
