Anybody know any Yanagisawa dealers in the San Diego area? Is there any online site that can help me find one?

Thanks!

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.

I just wanted to try one out for some contrast against Yamaha.

I've already checked out:
Allens-Selmer dealer, no other high quality saxes
McCrea-Nope
Windsmith-Closest Yamaha dealer, but no Yanagisawa

I plan on going to the Windsmith to try out the Yamaha 62, and find a mouthpiece I like for my new tenor (I plan on buying a Custom Z).

Anyway, thanks for the help! I'll keep those names in mind if I'm ever in the are.
