Yanigisawa T-991 Professional Tenor Saxophone
Yanagisawa designed the T-991 tenor saxophone for a centered sound and consistent intonation throughout the range of the instrument at any volume level. Improvement to the key mechanics allow for reliability and durability. Pointed pivot screws attach the keys to the saxophone for precise action. The octave key mechanism rotates at both ends in a coated joint for smooth operation. Low register table keys rock in two directions to make clunky low note keys easier to play faster. An F-auxiliary mechanism ensures that the larger keys in the low register seal to avoid leaks. Key cups are equipped with double-braced arms for more consistent key action, sealing and durability. The Yanagisawa T-991 is also available with a black lacquer finish for a slightly darker sound.
