Yanagisawa A9930 Alto Saxophone
A Unique Sound!!
This instrument is equally well suited to either classical or jazz playing. The model A-9930's sterling silver neckpipe and body create a remarkably clear sound with no excessive stridency or edginess, while its traditional brass bell adds a slightly warmer character to the tonal shading than the silver-bell models.New Features
The A-991 features Yanagisawa's sway-free mechanism for F auxiliary and low C-sharp keys, which affords better airtightness and intonation and facilitates adjustment and repair. From the cutting power to lead a saxophone section to the intricate expressiveness for solo repertoire, the many shades of tone this model offers make it ideal for any musical application.

Professional saxophone

I have this saxophone for 2 years and I love it. It has the best sound and it is very easy to control the sound. It is a little expensive but once you have it, you get in love with it and it worth it.

Wonderful Horn

By

I love this saxophone. I've been playing it for about 4 years now and I like it better than any Yamaha or other alto I've played. It is beautifully constructed and the tone is just beautiful. I even compared the Yanagisawa mouthpiece in a "blind" sound test with 4 other saxophonists against numerous other mouthpieces and every single person said they liked the Yanagasawa sound best.

Sweetest alto I've found

By 

from Columbia, SC

Site Member

I picked one of these up and tried it at the Midwest band and orchestra convention a few years back and I fell in love with it instantly. I've got several other altos (Selmer's & Yamaha), but they all sit in the closet now and collect dust. After playing this I tried everything out there that was cheaper, but nothing compared. I finally broke down and bought one. My dilemma now it that I want to get the matching soprano and tenor and I just don't have that much bread.
