OVERVIEW

Quality and features meet low price in the Yanagisawa A-991 Series Professional Alto Saxophone. The Yanagisawa A-991 alto sax is the product of the finest Japanese instrument craftsmanship in a fully professional-quality step-up saxophone.

Performers find that the Yanagisawa A-991 saxophone offers superb resonance and a refined sound. Intonation is even over the saxophone's entire range and at all dynamic levels. With a wide palette of tonal colors, the Yanagisawa A-991 sax blends well with other wind instruments.

The Yanagisawa A-991 sax sounds beautiful in all registers and has a big voice. If you're stepping up from a student saxophone, you'll find the A-991 alto sax to be refined and focused with even intonation over its entire range and at all dynamic levels. With a range from low Bb to high F#, both upper and lower register notes come forth easily even at quiet dynamics.

For fast runs and other techniques that require quick response, Yanagisawa has set the keys closer to the holes than some other professional saxophones giving you an edge. Yanagisawa includes a sway-free mechanism for the auxilliary F and low C# keys—an additional professional touch. You'll also be pleased with how well the octave keys fit your palm.

Yanagisawa saxophone build quality is second to none from the A-991 saxophone's lacquered brass to its hand-engraved bell. Each Yanagisawa A-991 alto sax is accompanied by a mouthpiece, a case, and a set of care products.

This sax has been a wolrd favorite for a long time.

    Comments about Yanagisawa A-991 Professional Alto Saxophone:

    For such a beautiful instrument and PRICE one would expect some cleaning gear. Otherwise I could not be more pleased with it. I have had a Yamaha Alto in the past, similarly priced but it was not a patch on the Yanagisawa Alto. Better sound, handling, everything.
