    Great sax in general

    By person056

    from New Jersey

    Comments about Yamaha YAS-23 Standard Eb Alto Saxophone:

    This horn is absolutely fantastic for what it is. I would even reccomend it as an intermediate horn and not just a begginer. It has a tone as good as the person who plays it and if it's set up well this horn will do anything for you. However, I would only reccomend buying this one used or renting it. If you have the money to drop on this horn, I recommend you save up more and buy the step up professional Yamaha YAS-62II. As wonderful as this horn is, the 62 is that much better. There are so many things I could describe about the 62 but this is a review of the 23 after all.

    good student sax

    By yossi cohen

    from monroe ny

    Comments about Yamaha YAS-23 Standard Eb Alto Saxophone:

    I'm using this sax for about 2 year. And I have tried out many saxes before and there is no student sax that is so good in quality like this.

    Excellent beginner alto sax

    Comments about Yamaha YAS-23 Standard Eb Alto Saxophone:

    I played this instrument for four years in high school. I got the pads replaced due to normal wear and tear after three years. Overall, this instrument was good but I outgrew it skill-wise, but could not afford a better sax. Negatives - nothing. It's a beginner level sax so that's the tone you get. You can't compare it to pro level saxes. The build quality is excellent. Nothing mechanical needed repair, just maintenance like tightening screws that got loose.

    great student instrument

    By saxman222

    from Vermont

    Comments about Yamaha YAS-23 Standard Eb Alto Saxophone:

    I began learning to play the sax with this bad boy in 5th grade. Now I'm halfway through 11th grade and the same instrument still works just as well as when I got it. With proper care, this sax will last for years.

    Great Student Alto

    By James Stup

    from Palm Coast, Florida

    Comments about Yamaha YAS-23 Standard Eb Alto Saxophone:

    I myself am pleased with this saxophone. It makes a wonderful beginner saxophone that is worth keeping for future needs such as a back up sax for gigs and what not. Has great stability and structure which is great for the less mature students who may not take care of things too well. Definitely worth the money so I will give the overall rating a 5.0 for a STUDENT sax.

    First And Best

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Yamaha YAS-23 Standard Eb Alto Saxophone:

    I ended up being the lucky one in 4th grade to receive this saxophone new as a rental. Later my parents decided to buy it for me for 5th grade. This is my only alto sax, as well as my first, and it is clearly the best. Do not go and buy anything other or cheaper than this. Having played school instruments, this is clearly the best alto on the market. Now that i am in high school, i am transitioning to a tenor, ironicially its a yamaha i got.... If tenor flies with me, I will definetely buy another yamaha. The craftsmanship in these is amazing and they all just feel so natural, fine tuned, and easy to play. Undoubtely my favorite saxes.
