Long & McQuade on Bloor St. usually have a couple of Yanagisawas in stock. Ken Fornetran, the woodwind repairman a few blocks east of them usually does too.

Cosmo is a Yamaha dealer...

St. John's on Avenue Road carries Yamaha, Jupiter and Cannonball.

Steve's Music on Queen St. carries Keilwerth.

Anything else ya wanna know?

actually, cosmo is a certified yanagisawa dealer.

ken! i remember him! i saw him a couple times at the rex, and i bought my yas-23 from a friend of his through him. il have to give him a call.

if i remember correctly, he had more vintage saxes than newer ones, but il give him a try.

do you know the adresses of the stores above?
