OVERVIEW

Pro-level Yanagisawa soprano.

The Yanagisawa Model S-991 Professional Soprano Saxophone's easy playability and remarkable tone distinguish the S-991 soprano sax from other instruments in its class.

Yanagisawa adds even more value to the S-991 sax by delivering it to you with 2 interchangeable neckpipes. Each neckpipe gives the Yanagisawa S-991 saxaphone different response and tone characteristics, making this one of the most versatile saxophone deals around.

The straight Yanagisawa S-991 neckpipe produces traditional soprano sound while the curved pipe offers performers a milder, mellower tone. Yanagisawa's legendary feather-like keywork smoothness and the comfortable lay of its mechanism make the S-991 soprano sax a pleasure to play for musicians of all ages and abilities.

The straight-bodied S-991 soprano saxophone also delivers Yanagisawa's hallmark quick response, magnificent intonation and round, full tone.

Key of Bb. High G key, front F key, double-action table keys, straight body with

Comments about Yanagisawa Model S-991 Professional Soprano Saxophone:

I ended up trying two of these horns. Sent the first one back because the intonation wasn't perfect. The second, however, WAS absolutely perfect. The action is smooth, the tone is beautiful. There's a lot to be expected from a company that makes ONLY saxophones, and Yanagisawa sure does deliver!!!

Yanagisawa's Finest!

Comments about Yanagisawa Model S-991 Professional Soprano Saxophone:

This is an amazing sax. Right out of the case, and with the stock mouthpiece, it played beautifully and in tune! It's got a full tone that I didn't expect from a soprano - no tinny, shrieking notes here! Factory-set action was perfect, especially the right hand palm keys and the Front F key. High F# and G are easily reachable, thanks to the F# and G right hand keys. I use the curved neck for classical and some jazz music, and the straight neck for full-out combo jazz and soloing. Overall, this is THE horn to beat on the market right now - ergonomically and acoustically!

Incredible horn!

Comments about Yanagisawa Model S-991 Professional Soprano Saxophone:

I was completely impressed from the first note I played on this horn. I had a Yamaha Custom before this, and there is no comparison. Notes speak freely, and except for low C and high B natural, perfectly in tune. The two necks are also great. You can't be the price either, especially for everything that this sax offers. (high G key, two necks, great case) Definitely highly recommended!
