For those that own the Yanagisawa a901.
How good is the Middle D on this sax.
Is it less stuffy than most? Does it take relatively less pressure to obtain than some other sax?
How is the lacquer and acid bleed issue in the latter models?
I am seriously thinking about the a901.

I have been playing the Yanagisawa A 901 for 7 years. During that time, I have played other saxophone makes. Tenor, soprano and alto. I have found nothing that I like better than the 901. No finish issues and the middle D is very well balanced and easier playing that any of the sax's I've played. Of course this is all a personal thing. The only issue I have ever had with it, is the mouthpiece. Never liked it and never got along with it at all. Mainly I use a Rousseau JDZ 7 and sometimes, depending on the music, A Runyon Custom.
