The Yanagisawa A991 offers many features that make it a saxophone that produces sublime results. The adjustable front F key allows for more scope and flexibility in the altissimo ranges. The left hand table linkage on the Yanagisawa saxophones offers an uncompromised comfort, with a slider mechanism between the C# and B key and a seesaw linkage between the C# and Bb key. This allows for faster and smoother technique.
Tough and Heavy Duty Construction
The Yanagisawa A991 includes an integrated post-rib construction, which mainly offers a great deal more strength to the instrument should the instrument ever be accidentally dropped or knocked. A benefit from this is also the added mid-range resonance which gives better acoustic depth and projection. As well as this, a palm key reinforcement plate is included in to the design of the instrument, which also strengthens the instrument dramatically. Between the body and the bell of the instrument is a tri point brace which not only strengthens the instrument but also gives more power to fortissimo ranges.
Professional Pads and Superior Springs
On this instrument, some of the best materials are used to make sure that the action is just right. Blue Steel springs have been used on the pads to ensure a fast action but with a comfortable amount of strength. This allows for faster passages to be played with ease. As well as this, the airtight waterproof pads are used to ensure that it will be completely leak free and long lasting.
On this A-991, a gold lacquer has been added to the brass body instrument to provide a clean and powerful tone. The engraving adds the finishing touch to a fantastic looking instrument. As well as this, genuine mother of pearl keys and buttons have been added to the mechanisms to create an attractive and great feeling instrument.
Everything You Need
Last of all, the instrument also comes with a leather bound hard case, which allows your instrument to be transported to rehearsals and concerts safely and securely. Also included in this saxophone package is the crook, mouthpiece, ligature and reed, allowing you to get playing as soon as you receive the instrument.
Please note that this Yanagisawa Saxophone is an ex-demonstration saxophone, which has been used in our York showroom. Although there are very small scratches to the body, the rest of the instrument is completely as new, including the standard 1 year warranty. It also includes all accessories that come with the pack as standard.
