Low A to High F#. Lacquered Brass, hand engraved. Much like the 901 but a little more reserved, more mature. A very laid-back instrument, one for connoisseurs of smooth jazz and refined classical music. However, it can deliver when a bit more punch is needed, and high register playing is very secure.
All Yani saxes are supplied with hard case, strap and a classy Yanagisawa ebonite 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
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 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.
Free Professional Set Up
1.On arrival, every saxophone is checked & adjusted in-store. This is essential as every sax requires some attention after it’s long journey from the factory.
2. Once sold, every saxophone is checked & regulated for a second time as the set-up can be affected by the new materials expanding & contracting according to environmental conditions.
3. New saxes purchased from us can be returned within a year for a FREE check over and adjustment.
