  1. Yanagisawa
    So I just got a used T-902, 26XXXX serial number so I think it's an early 2000's model, and it has plastic thumb pieces. Looking at all of the pictures of Yanys on Reverb it seems like: -800 series horns all have plastic thumb pieces -991/992 series horns all have metal thumb pieces -SW horns...
  2. Yanagisawa
    Hi All! Looking for some tips on intonation for my current bari setup. I've got an older Yanagisawa "6 Series" bari paired with a Berg Larsen 120/2 Metal mouthpiece. Intonation throughout most of the range is manageable, however, anything above high G is EXTREAMELY sharp. Any ideas as to why...
  3. Sax Repair, Maintenance and Modification
    Hi all, just recently got a Yanagisawa AWO20 about 2 weeks ago. For the last 3 days I've been monitoring acid bleed under my lacquer at the palm keys and body brace and was wondering if anyone can give me some advice. Im a technician based in South Africa and its gonna cost me a fortune to send...
  4. Eb Alto
    Hi everyone. Just received this 1971 A5, and I noticed that the neck color is pretty much different from the horn, though, it matches the two-tone color scheme of the horn. Do you think it is original to the horn, or, perhaps, it is from another Yani? That particular octave key design I saw on...
  5. Selmer (Paris)
    Hello everyone, Does anyone else have a SBA Soprano? There are only a very few around. Mine is gold plated, 40xxx, which is even rarer. I love its sound, like a vintage Selmer should have. But like the soprano MKVI's, it has those palm keys that are not really comfortable, and intonation...
  6. Bb Soprano
    I am interested in getting a curved soprano for under $3000. I have been hoping to find a used Yanagisawa SC-991 or SC-992 (as I really like their straight sopranos, but I sold my straight one because of thumb issues), but I haven't seen any used curved ones for sale for some months now. So...
  7. General Discussion
    I've been keeping a lookout for a decent tenor when I came across this craigslist listing: YANAGISAWA T-901 Lacquer - musical instruments - by owner - sale. With the serial number being a simple ascending number I was a little cautious and decided to see when it was made. While looking, I came...
  8. For New SOTW Members
    I have consulted this excellent site on and off for years but have never posted before. I just bought a mystery unmarked, unnamed, unnumbered lacquered old brass alto sax from UK eBay, (I know),but it wasn't for very much money at all from a buyer who was very honest about all its faults but...
  9. 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...

  11. 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...
  12. 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...
