This Yanagisawa Baritone Sax B991 with Low A to High F#. Lacquered Brass, hand engraved.

Like the 901 is very playable and the action is fluid but the sound is more expansive. Supplied with good quality hard case, strap and ebonite mouthpiece.

Fluororesin-sleeved, non-stick octave system: Both ends of the octave key axis rotate in a receptacle that is coated with Fluororesin-sleeved, non-stick coating 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.

Double connected table key: Not only are the C# and Bb keys connected with the oscillating table mechanism, but the C# and B have also adopted this same motion.

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 .

Ribbed construction: Posts are connected to a single metal rib that is soldered to the body of the saxophone - this adds to the durability of the instrument.

Metal thumb rests: Both thumb rests on the saxophone are metal to match with the style of the saxophone and the right hand thumb hook is adjustable so that the performer can customize the feel of their saxophone.

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).

Double braced arm: Two separate arms connect to the pad cup to ensure proper seating of the pad and improve the durability of the instrument.

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