Every student deserves an Advantage! The YAS-200ADII is the perfect rental instrument for the beginning saxophone student. Offering a myriad of features that enforce positive habits and provide comfort and durability, the Advantage alto saxophone provides an excellent overall experience.
New neck receiver with a durable screw:
A redesigned neck receiver promotes a quick response and ease of play while also increasing the durability of the mechanism.
All Yamaha saxophones feature an adjustable thumb-rest to allow for precise and comfortable hand and fingering position.
Improved Low B-C# connection:
An improved mechanism from low B-C# ensures the consistent closing of the low C# key and promotes a clear response from notes in the low range of the instrument.
Durable and resistant to wear.
The Selmer AS500 is a great addition to the array of saxophones available from Selmer. The AS500 ensures a comfortable playing position for young hands through more comfortable design features. Features such as the adjustable right hand thumb rest and the linear design of the left and right hand key sections are ideal for new students. Players will value the high F# key that extends the range of the saxophone, which is key to preforming advanced literature. Parents will appreciate the durability of the nickel-plated key mechanism and the addition of a support guide to protect the vulnerable right-hand trill key hinge rods from damage. The innovative change of lowering the octave key pin flush with the top of the neck receiver will protect it from damage, especially when students forget to use the end plug.
