Yanagisawa A-991 Series Professional Alto Saxophone A-991 - Lacquer
The Yanagisawa A-991 alto saxophone has consistent intonation, the ability to play in tune, across the entire range of the saxophone. Constructed to allow for a wide range of tone colors, this instrument is great for blending in an ensemble or playing solo. The keys on this saxophone are adjusted to be close to the tone holes, where the pads seal, which facilities faster movement since the keys have to travel less distance to close. Pivot screws attach keys to the saxophone for precise action. An octave key mechanism rotates at both ends in a coated joint for smooth operation. The low register table keys rock in two directions to make clunky low note keys easier to play faster. An F-auxiliary mechanism ensures that these larger low register keys seal correctly to avoid leaks. Designed for a wide-range of sound variation and reliable key mechanics, the Yanagisawa A-991 is a great professional horn.
