Woody: I see no one replied. I don't know about authorized Yanagisawa dealers in your county, but you could try Hornimprovement in southern Orange County.
Beyond that, I think maybe Scimonetti's in Lancaster may be an authorized dealer - and I know Dave Kessler in Las Vegas carries Yanagisawa. Baxter-Northrup in Sherman Oaks (San Fernando Valley) also has them. DAVE
Thanks for mentioning us, Dave.
Woody, give us a call and let us know what you're looking for.
We keep a some Yanis in stock, along with qite a selection of saxes. We also have the widest selection of mouthpieces in SoCal, and an excellent repair shop.
Quite a few San Diegans making the trek these days.
No shops I know of in SD carry many new horns-- they can order one for you, but you'll probably be stuck with it if you do it that way and don't like the horn. There are a couple shops in La Mesa - Alan's and McRae. Also check out The Windsmith in North Park-- they might have something used or could order a new horn if you like. The Windsmith is a great store. I went to both Horn Improvement and Kessler's in Vegas when I was on my horn quest-- both very cool shops that stuck me in a room with all the saxes I wanted to test out (and more) with no pressure to buy and no time limits. I highly recommend them both. I ended getting a used T992 from a private party-- I did not know about Yanis before visiting their shops other than from reading about them here.
