HELP, I Want One!

This is an absolutely gorgeous, early series Yanagisawa A990 alto sax, serial number 00182775. This early series 990 features the raised emblem on the bell, and it is in true all-original condition, with greater than 99% original lacquer intact.


This sax looks as nice as they come. There's minor cosmetic surface scratching here and there, notably around the neckstrap ring, but only light lacquer wear on a couple touch points. No dents or dings, no resolders, no previous repairs. All of the original pads (brown nylon resonators) are still in like-new condition, and the sax has been freshly adjusted and is in perfect playing condition.


This is a fantastic alto for serious classical and concert band players. It plays with a clear and concise attack, and offers superb control and intonation. It has a very focused and precise sound, slightly darker overall, and is as pure of a player as you'll find. It ships complete with original case, also in excellent shape.
