Yanagisawa, like most newer altos, plays with a brighter sound quality so we recommend a standard Meyer alto mouthpiece for jazz or the Selmer S80 C* or Vandoren Optimum for classical work. This model is warmer than the AW01 and AW02.
Model features underslung octave key, post to rib body construction, double-arm low B and C key, High F# key, improved table key connections, F vibration dampening bar, improved front F key, metal thumb rests, improved ergonomic palm keys and hand engraved bell.
The Bronze models will play slightly brighter than the lacquered models. Overall intonation on Yanagisawa saxophones is outstanding!!
The Sax Alley price will include our ” New Horn Set-Up” and FREE Shipping.
Comes with case, mouthpiece, cap, ligature and cork grease.
