The Yanagisawa Model S-991 Professional Soprano Saxophone's easy playability and remarkable tone distinguish the S-991 soprano sax from other instruments in its class.
Yanagisawa adds even more value to the S-991 sax by delivering it to you with 2 interchangeable neckpipes. Each neckpipe gives the Yanagisawa S-991 saxaphone different response and tone characteristics, making this one of the most versatile saxophone deals around.
The Yanagisawa S-991 sax' straight neckpipe produces traditional soprano sound while the curved pipe offers performers a milder, mellower tone. Yanagisawa's legendary feather-like keywork smoothness and the comfortable lay of its mechanism make the S-991 soprano sax a pleasure to play for musicians of all ages and abilities.
The straight-bodied S-991 soprano saxophone also delivers Yanagisawa's hallmark quick response, magnificent intonation and round, full tone.
Key of Bb. High G key, front F key, double-action table keys, straight body with 2 interchangeable neckpipes (straight and curved), lacquered brass. Remarkable intonation and full, rich tone.

Comments about Yanagisawa Model S-991 Professional Soprano Saxophone:
The Yanagisawa S991 Soprano Saxophone is the finest soprano ever made in my view. Yani leads the pack when it comes to sopranos. Ergonomics, depth of sound which was rich, power, resonance and intonation are second to none. In my search for a new soprano to replace my Yamaha 62, Yani 800 & Yani 901, I held on to a Selmer III and Yamaha 875 each for a week. Both were nice horns, however, the upper register on the Selmer was difficult to get and the Yamaha had a nasally quality. Both had nice intonation. However, the Yanagisawa 991 has a wonderful full presence, easy to hit the high registers, effortless to control and dead on intonation in all registers. I really can't say enough. The sound is absolutely beautiful. Yani leads the pack in the soprano market. Lastly, really awesome sound and control with the Selmer Super Session F Mouthpiece & LaVoz Medium Reeds. Truly a fun horn to play and hard to put down.
