YANAGISAWA A 901

Yanagisawa is recognized today as a maker of the most carefully handcrafted family of artist-level saxophones in the world.

Teflon octave system

Both ends of the octave key axis rotate in a receptacle that is coated with teflon to insure a smooth operation every time

Rocking table mechanism

The C# and Bb keys have a rocking table mechanism that allows for optimal speed and fluidity between these pitches

F-auxiliary key mechanism

Insures a proper seal of the pads when playing in the low range of the saxophone

"Indented" white shell keys

A player’s fingers will rest comfortably in the indented white shell keys. The white shells also enhance the beauty of the instrument while also preventing the player’s fingers from slipping during technical passages

Pointed pivot screw

The pivot screws that are used have a pointed end which facilitates an accurate center and precise action

Air-tight waterproof pad

The pads are completely air-tight which supports stability in playing and their life is extended thanks to being waterproof

Blue steel springs

Blue steel springs give the player quick response and are much more resilient than stainless steel (they also last much longer)

Tri-point balanced bell brace

The bell and the body of the saxophone are firm connected by a tri-point balanced bell brace

Features
