Silver Body Tube and Neck
This a very pretty Yanagisawa 9930 alto saxophone, serial number 00308465. The 9930 is one of Yanagisawa's elite professional saxophones. It is constructed with a sterling silver body tube, sterling silver neck and a gold lacquered brass bow and bell. The Yanagisawa 9930 features an ultra comfortable key layout to high F# with ample post rib construction for added constructional support and improved resonance. The Yanagisawa 9930 is an ideal instrument for the player looking for deep and dark focused sound. This one in particular has a beautifully focused core sound. Projection and the precise level of control  is exceptional. The dark sound and tightly balanced scale make these altos very popular with the classical saxophone community. 
 
The last owner of the alto took great care in its handling. It is in pristine physical condition and has no history of past repair. The body tube, bow, bow cap, bell and bell flare are all in outstanding original condition. If you look very closely you can see a little bit of cosmetic wear from past playing, some light scratching here and there but nothing serious. The original sterling silver neck with under-slung octave key is also in perfect shape.  
 
The Yani is currently in the Saxquest shop awaiting a professional set-up. Its key work is going to be fine tuned and regulated to perfection. The current equivalent of the 9930 is significant in price so this is a wonderful opportunity to pick one up at a premium price. This 9930 ships out in perfect playing condition in the original Yanagisawa case.
