Being from the era of Willy Smith & Benny Carter I am very partial to the
sweet lyrical sound that they produced.I bought a Yanagisawa 880 00115xxx
alto and it(and the owner of course) produces a very lovely sound.I have a few questions please.
When was this instrument made?Is the 800 and the 880 basically the same horn?Does the 880 tenor have the same characteristics as the alto?
Are the new Yanis superior to the old ones?(I do not see how they could be much better than the alto?I have a beat up 1950 12M bari and am considering upgrading when I finally get some cash to a more modern
horn.How does this vintage Yani bari rate?

Thank you but that site does not address opinions on the tenors and baritones and the new and old instruments.I did get the age of my alto though-1982
