Very good instrument
etc-etc, 08.04.2019
The saxophone arrived fine out-of-box except for the octave key which was riding a little high and in released position was about 1 mm above equal height with the thumb rest. All notes in standard range respond well, in tune and clear. Altissimo range is more easily accessible as high F# key is provided. The side C and Bb seem a little undervented. The G# pad sometimes sticks closed the next day after playing as it often does on other saxophones. The neck collar jaws are much improved from earlier versions - they are beefy enough to not bend shut when the neck screw is tightened (that was an issue on YAS-23 where the neck collar jaws were much thinner). The bell when looked on from player's side, while parallel to the main body, is facing somewhat to the left which appears to be a compact design feature, as all low stack keys respond and seal properly. All in all, a well made, sturdy and easy to play instrument.

Wow
gnorff, 14.11.2019
Arrived fast and in perfect condition. Totally new to the saxohone, coming from the clarinet. After a first night wondering what I was doing, I fell in love with that instrument the next day. I don't know enough to judge it properly but it must definitely be good for beginners if it was that easy to start having fun with it. Can't wait to see what it will sound like after a few months
