Yanagisawa 990u Alto
This is a gorgeous Yanagisawa 990u alto saxophone, serial number 00197921. If you are looking for a real looker this is it. The body of the saxophone is pristine with no history of repair. There has been zero dent and solder work on this sax. The body tube, bow, bow cap, bell and bell flare are all in tremendous original condition. It also includes the original neck with under slung octave key. The neck also in pristine condition. 
 
The 990 is an ultra flexible dark alto and is an outstanding choice for the classical saxophonist or anyone looking for a sax to use in a large variety of musical situations. This particular Yanagisawa is a beautiful playing instrument. It has a dark color to the way it plays with a richly focused sonic character. The key work on this alto feels ultra crisp and fluid under the fingers. This saxophone is keyed up to high F# and has a lovely pearl covered tear drop front F. 
 
The Yanagisawa came into our shop playing up a storm on another shops work. We will also take a look at it on the bench before it ships to ensure all the pads are sealing perfectly. Sax ships with original Yanagisawa wood hard case also in mint condition.
