Yanagisawa 991 Alto Saxophone, Mint Condition
Yanagisawa 991 alto saxophone in mint condition. Here is a one owner sax that was kept in immaculate shape. The sax was played very sparingly, so the pads and action are still in like new condition. There are no dents and no scratches. The pads seal very well and the entire range speaks effortlessly. The neck is original to the horn and is in fantastic shape. The corks and felts are all present.
The 991 is considered Yanagisawa's top of the line professional saxophone. This is the gold lacquered version, versus the 992, which is made from bronze. The gold lacquer gives this sax some extra clarity and projection compared to the 992. It's an outstanding pro horn that I feel is in the same quality level as the professional models from Selmer Paris and Yamaha.
