              Comments about Yamaha YAS-26 Student Alto Sax Outfit:

              Yamaha is my favorite brand. Great instruments across the board. This is marked as a student model, but plays more like an intermediate. Easy playability throughout the range of the sax. The low C is right below my pinkie, perfect position (no stretching that pinkie in hopes of reaching the low C key). Great for the dedicated student who wants to improve their sound on something more substantial than most student models.

                A great saxophone for the professional sax player. Great for advanced jazz band or any orchestra. Nice responsive quick keys for a variety of notes. I also like the improved sound which is really noticeable in the low b range. This is a hands on product review from Eric @ Sam Ash Cincinnati.

                  This sax has great tone and a classy design. I personally like the silver platted finish. The keys are quick and the response is ideal for student practice but that doesn't mean this sax wont sound great in a concert.

                        The Yamaha YAS-26 Student Alto Sax Outfit is one of the best student saxes you can get on the market. It is a solid horn made very well. It may be a little on the pricy end but it is worth it, it will last you for years until you are ready to upgrade to a pro. The low notes are fat and the high notes blend well without sounding like a whine. The case is solid as well.

                          The Yamaha YAS 26 is the perfect horn for every beginner and even more advanced players. The lifetime of this horn can last 10 or more years, especially if it is taken care of. The quality of the craftsmanship is so high that adjustments will not need to be made often (perhaps years) under normal use of wear and tear. For the beginner starting out in elementary or middle school this horn can take you through high school and even beyond. For advanced players this horn is built so well it can be used as a back-up horn. If you're someone who is interesting in picking up the saxophone again, this is the horn to go with.
                          There is no High F# key on the horn, but there is an alternate way of playing it.

                            This model really plays more like an intermediate model horn. As I've come to expect from Yamaha, the quality is unquestionable. With many improvements, the 26 replaced the long loved 23. They made the lower notes easier to achieve with a new, sturdier mechanism. The pads seal tightly and are waterproof, which means they will last. For any serious beginner or even intermediate player, consider Yamaha's 26.

Taking the already spectacular YAS23 and improving upon it, the 26 model is unmatched as far as playability and quality of sound and construction. This sax is perfect for the beginning player or for an advancing saxophonist looking for something different.

                                The YAS23 has been a global standard for "your first GOOD sax". The YAS26 has upped the game. With improvements to key work and playability, this version of the Yamaha "Student" horn is even better.

                                As always NEVER purchase a saxophone you can not play first. Visit your local Sam Ash Music to try this out. It's also cheaper at the store!
