What a beast!






"What a difference the bronze makes! Nice weighty horn that sits very
comfortably and feels great to play. Clear and warm tone in all
registers, it has more punch than the 991 and is not as reserved. The
sound is more upfront and really projects very well."



Low A to top F#.






These bronze models continue to be the most outstanding models in this
exceptional range of saxophones - nearly all the Yanagisawa endorsees
choose them. The bronze enhances a round warm tone, often described as
being similar to the classic old American saxes. It looks slightly
darker than brass making it just a little more individual.






Supplied with Yanagisawa Case & Mouthpiece









Teflon octave system



Both ends of the octave key axis rotate in a receptacle that is coated
with teflon to insure a smooth operation every time






Rocking table mechanism



The C# and Bb keys have a rocking table mechanism that allows for
optimal speed and fluidity between these pitches






Double connected table key



Not only are the C# and Bb keys connected with the oscillating table
mechanism, but the C# and B have also adopted this same motion






F-auxiliary key mechanism



Insures a proper seal of the pads when playing in the low range of the
saxophone






"Indented" white shell keys



A player's fingers will rest comfortably in the indented white shell
keys. The white shells also enhance the beauty of the instrument while
also preventing the player's fingers from slipping during technical
passages






Ribbed construction



Posts are connected to a single metal rib that is soldered to the body
of the saxophone - this adds to the durability and longevity of the
instrument






Metal thumb rests



Both thumb rests on the saxophone are metal to match with the style of
the saxophone and the right hand thumb hook is adjustable so that the
performer can customize the feel of their saxophone






Pointed pivot screw



The pivot screws that are used have a pointed end which facilitates an
accurate center and precise action






Air-tight waterproof pad



The pads are completely air-tight which supports stability in playing
and their life is extended thanks to being waterproof






Blue steel springs



Blue steel springs give the player quick response and are much more
resilient than stainless steel (they also last much longer)






Double braced arm



Two separate arms connect to the pad cup to ensure proper seating of the
pad and improve the durability of the instrument






Tri-point balanced bell brace



The bell and the body of the saxophone are firm connected by a tri-point
balanced bell brace









Yanagisawa Saxophones



Yanagisawa is a friendly family owned business based in Japan that
exists purely for the creation of beautiful saxes. Their positive
attitude, creative talent and craftsmanship has brought them to the
forefront of the saxophone world. Few sax players would disagree that
the Yani soprano's are the best in the world. The Yani baritones out
sell the competition many times over. In our sax tests a Yani alto came
out top and is our most popular sax in its class. That leaves the Yani
tenors which are simply as good as the rest of the range. These saxes
are very playable with an excellent 'instant sound' and helpful,
accurate intonation. Players love their Yani's and we love selling them!
They arrive with us well set up and in perfect order rarely needing any
adjustment. They are arguably the best made saxes - it is almost unheard
of for any Yanagisawa to need after sales care in our workshop. No
nonsense trouble free ownership and a joy to play.

    "Absolutely beautiful!"
    Richard Goffin-Lecar
    I have always wanted a baritone. Having played soprano, alto and tenor, I felt that it was time to move up to the big boy, and buy a baritone. Sax.co.uk was the obvious choice. I got to play about eight different baritones in their Denmark Street shop. The ever-helpful (and extremely knowledgeable Adrian Woods helpedme with the different ones. They ranged from Treveor James, (a very good horn for the money), to Yamaha, Selmer and Yanagisawa. I have to say though, the B992 really did, for me, stand out head and shoulders above the rest - even the other Yanagisawas - and that really is saying something. Of course, they are not inexpensive, to use a considerable degree ou understatement, and they are BLOOMING HEAVY! However, you get what you pay for, and if you can afford the price of a good used car, you will get one hell of a saxophone! It plays like a dream - very easy for a baritone, and it can purr like a kitten, or roar like a lion - the whole range of sounds are there. I cannot recommend these instruments highly enough. You will remember the quality long after you have forgotten the price. Besides, these are seriously cheap, when you consider how much a professional violinist, or a cellist has to pay for an equivalent quality instrument. The B992 - It certainly does it for me.
