Hi I'm a 57 yo from New Zealand who has recently taken up the challenge and started learning the tenor sax. I have been renting for 9 months and my teacher recently saw a ex rental Yamaha TS 100 sax for sale and I bought it. Wondered if none else has had experience with one of these horns? Apparently a good student horn.

The forum looks great and hope to get lot's of info and advice along the journey.

Hi David. Big welcome from me.

If it says Yamaha on the tin, you can't really go wrong. I guess your teacher checked it out before you bought it, so relax and enjoy!

Yo David,

Welcome to the "staff"!

I'm a beginning Tenorman, too...been taking lessons for 2 months.

Learning to read music at age 76 is a bit frustrating at times, but fulfilling!

Our local musical instrument repairman says that Yamaha saxophones are rugged and reliable.

I had been renting a Yamaha Student Tenor, but recently bought a new Yamaha YTS 200AD.

It looks and runs great!

Best of luck with your studies. (Heck...you're a young man, David!)

Hal

Greetings David, from the mighty Waikato,

The AS100 and TS100 Yamaha saxes were sold along side the 25 series Yamaha in the Australasian (Aussie and Kiwi, and few Pacific Islands) and some Asian markets as an alternative. I think the range went AS/TS 100, 25 series, 32 series, etc. I'm pretty sure they (100 and 25 series) have now been superseded by the 275 series horns. I suppose one day we may get the flash 280 series horn - wow!

It should be a good horn!

For some unknown reason Yamaha have always had different model numbers for different regions - I think it is some Japanese conspiracy to confuse westerners...:))) well, I'm confussed any way

There's always a few selling on "TradeMe"...

Good luck with the horn playing...

Cheers,

Greg S.
