  1. 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?
  2. Embouchure & Tone Producing Basics
    Hello, friends. I'm an intermediate alto player, but, since I have been "teaching myself" for so many years without having any real teacher to help me, I am afraid that I may have picked up some bad embouchure habits over the years, that I am now finally trying to correct. This is why I am...

  4. 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...
  5. 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...
  6. 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...
  7. 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...
  8. Advice on Buying or Selling a Saxophone
    Good day fam, I'm considering purchasing the saxophone below. Can someone please tell me if this is legit and what the value is? The serial number is 001837** (production period between 1992-1993 I believe). The seller is asking for $4,500
  9. Advice on Buying or Selling a Saxophone
    Hi, SOTWers- I'm in high school and have been playing alto sax for about seven years. I guess you could call me an advanced intermediate player. Currently I use a Selmer La Voix II alto sax which I've had for about 5 years. My mouthpiece is a V16 a6 and my reeds are java red 3's (I've tested a...
  10. Yanagisawa
    A few weeks ago (the day Roger Stone was indicted, to be exact), I purchased a new TWO1 from Wichita Band. After a few weeks, these are my impressions: Cosmetically, and of least importance to me, the lacquer on the TWO1 is very nice. The engraving is, however, relatively sparse and simple...

  12. Ligatures
    So I've been playing on the metal Yanagisawa sopranino mouthpiece and looking for a ligature. The mouthpiece appears to be a similar size to the HR nino pieces but can't be sure. Anyone have any experience in finding other ligatures for this piece that fit?
  13. Sax vs. Sax, Mpc vs. Mpc, etc.
    I've been looking at the Forestone tenor saxophones recently, and was just wondering if anyone has played them alongside Yanagisawa saxophones? Also what are people's general thoughts on the Forestone saxophones, I think they look alright, especially after watching Jim Cheek play it on Sax.co.uk.
  14. Baritone mpc
    I recently got a metal yanagisawa mouthpiece and love it, but I’m interested in a ligature that may work better than the stock lig. Any recommendations?
  15. Bb Soprano
    Hi there I was recently roaming the Chinese equivalent of amazon, Taobao And something caught my eye, supposedly there was a yanagisawa soprano sax (listed as a s-901) The only issue was, the price for the instrument was incoherently suspicious, 2200 yuan is equivalent to approx. 300 usd for a...

  17. Yanagisawa
    Hi Guys, Way back when I was a teenager I made a deal with my mum if I bought a saxophone she would pay for the lessons. I bought the first second hand one I could find in the classified, sight unseen and then go too busy with passing high school to ever learn it. 25 years has now passed and its...
  18. Tenor mpc
    Metal Durga 3 (or high baffle mpc) tunning problem with Yamaha 82Z & Yanagisawa saxes Hi, I play a metal Durga 3 - 7* which I really love. I was playing a B&S Medusa which is a very decent horn. I went to a big Music Shop in Frankfurt and I was able to try the new tenor saxes from: Selmer...
  19. General Discussion
    Never thought I'd ask this question but I picked a pair of SML and Marigaux pins (promotional/novelty items I guess for dealers, etc.). One has a pair of oboes and 'Marigaux' in big letters across the instruments The other has a straight soprano and tenor sax and 'Yanagisawa' in big letters...
  20. Advice on Buying or Selling a Saxophone
    Hello! I've been researching for weeks and months now over this decision to purchase a new Alto Saxophone. I know that there is tremendous value in purchasing a vintage or used horn, but for personal reasons and my situation this is not an option for me. I played Alto all throughout schooling...
