      The YAS-26 is one of the best student horns available! Right out of the box, the horn immediately starts playing great. The overall gold lacquer body and silver-plated keys makes this a very appealing instrument to all players, from the saxophone enthusiast to the serious student taking lessons. Penny for penny, a great investment.

                    Comments about Yamaha YAS-26 Student Alto Sax Outfit:

                    This is by far the best student alto out there. Yamaha has long been known for their high quality student instruments, but this one is even a cut above those. In terms of sound, ease of playability, intonation, and construction it blows every other student instrument maker out of the water. This is a horn that could last a whole lifetime as long as you take good care of it. I would recommend this for the beginner or the advanced player on a budget.

                      Hands-down the best value for the sound. Sounds much better than even some less expensive pro models. Will last for many, many years, especially with proper maintenance.
