The YAS26 saxophone is the ultimate student instrument. A redesigned neck receiver promotes a quick response and ease of play while also increasing the durability of the mechanism. 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. All Yamaha saxophones feature an adjustable thumb-rest to allow for precise and comfortable hand and fingering position. Featuring Nickel plated keys ensures they are durable and resistant to wear.
