  1. Yanagisawa
    It confused me for a long time that why there is a "Prima" after the model name. I intent to buy a Yanagisawa soprano from Yahoo Japan, but I found a series named "Prima" , and I studied the history of Yanagisawa from official website but can't find any description of it. Could anybody teach me...

  3. Yanagisawa
    Dear friends, If you would be so kind as to share your observations with me, I have a very unique question here, but only for those of you professionals who have owned and played BOTH straight and curved RECENT-MODEL Yanagisawa sopranos of the same generation, make, and model, particularly the...
  4. Bb Soprano
    I just bought a pre-owned Yanagisawa SC991 curved soprano in excellent condition but a peculiarity has me a bit baffled: The right hand pinky D# spatula key makes contact with the top of the D cup when depressed without first playing the D. I realize this isn't done normally, except for perhaps...
  5. Eb Alto
    I have been playing for about 9 years, and I'm finally upgrading from my student horn. I've been hunting for about a year, and I'm currently debating between a Yanagizawa AW02 or a Cannonball AVR-L. If anyone has any thoughts on these two, or wants to suggest something different I'm all ears. I...
  6. Advice on Buying or Selling a Saxophone
    There seems to be a connection between these two instruments. Any thoughts on which to buy (alto)? Which one could play most of the different genres of music?
  7. Embouchure & Tone Producing Basics

  9. Yanagisawa
    Hi guys! I have a question for you all concerning the modell of my Yanagisawa. I just bought it yesterday, and the mechanics are pretty elaborate, so I strongly think it's not a counterfeit, but the SN is throwing me off. Here are some pics and specs for you all. Stencil: Made by Yanagisawa...
  10. Sax Repair, Maintenance and Modification
    Do techs tend not to know that the Yanagisawa dual-neck sopranos are made to operate with the neck receiving the octave mechanism on the side? I brought an S-880 to a tech with a new (very used) curved neck, which the tech said was incapable of being corrected. I also had an S-991 curved neck...
  11. Alto mpc
    Hello all! As per your requests, I was able to get a review sample of the new Yanagisawa Classical AC140 mouthpiece. I hope this review is helpful to all those who requested it to be made. Keep an eye out for more reviews down the line, Conn-Selmer sent me a handful of other new products to...
  12. Acoustics
    On July 5 Yanagisawa announced a new product called the “Yany BooStar.” This is a replacement screw for the neck receiver, for which Yanagisawa claims all sorts of benefits. You can see the announcement at Yanagisawa.co.jp. I have little to no faith in these sorts of claims, and am somewhat...
