I grew up playing a particularly popular brand of saxes and honestly thought that when I bought my own Tenor, I would probably get one. A fellow musician in college had a Yanagisawa alto and loved it, so I figured I'd give their tenor a shot. Wow! Aside from being a free-blowing sax with a pure and rich sound, I can't fully explain how liberating it was to play. The keywork is super comfortable. It's like Yanagisawa actually measured the human hand to figure out where to put the keys. When I initially tested the pitch against a tuner, I thought the upper range was way off. Then I realized I was trying to correct as if I was playing another brand of horn (cough). When I relaxed my embouchure and didn't change anything from low to high, it was spot on.
This is the kind of sax to buy if you want a great sound, and you don't want to have to fight the instrument to be able to make music.
If your ready to buy a professional tenor saxophone, do not forget to check out the Yanagisawa 991. The 991 tenor saxophone looks like a King super 20 (with the under-slung neck), but unlike the king super 20, has the best modern key-work ever designed for a modern professional horn. I have owned my 991 tenor saxophone for the past 4 years and have to say that I switch back and forth between my Mark VI and 991 because even though many players believe and myself to some extent that Selmer mark VI rivals almost all new professional saxophones, the kewyork and playability on my 991 is effortless. For me, using the 991 tenor sax with a solid hard rubber or metal mouthpiece; such as a ted klum or lebayle mouthpiece, has given me a sound that is almost identical to my Selmer Mark VI with half the amount of effort. The engraving, pads, felts, and springs are of the highest quality and can enhance your playing. I would recommend this tenor saxophone and put it up against the yamaha custom z, keilwerth sx 90r and the selmer reference 54 tenor saxophone
It took me a couple of years to select a horn, and in 2002, I chose the T-991 after a lot of reading, talking to other players, and playing different brands. It was somewhat of a nightmare, because so many horns are decent, and set ups varied so much between horns. After getting the horn, I tried different mouthpieces, and am now playing the Vandoren ebonite V-16 w/opening 8. I use 3.0 Vandoren JaZZ reeds. The horn continues to be a much better player than I, but when great players have played it, I am totally blown away with the excellent sound and expressive range of the horn. It is responsive to breath and embouchure control, and dynamics are amazing. I have even played classical and find the tone very versatile. So many other horns have felt too resistant and "stuffy" after playing the T-991, at least to my tastes. Choosing a sax is definitely a process, and ultimately, the horn chooses you, in a way, rather than you choosing the horn. I have "babied" this instrument, and it still looks great and responds well. I don't think I will ever see a need to replace this fine instrument.
