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.
