5 YEAR EXTENDED WARRANTY SCHEME

The product price includes a one year warranty and 30 day money back guarantee.

However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 5 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 90 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first two years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 5 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

Yanagisawa B9930 Baritone Sax, Silver Neck and Body

Details
The Yanagisawa B9930 Baritone Saxophone features a beautiful solid silver body with a stunning lacquered brass bow and bell. An elite instrument with mechanically superior design features aimed at excelling students and professionals, this sax includes key features of the popular B901 model as well as some additional design elements for improved performance and sound. The difference between this model and the B991/2 is the professional solid silver finish that produces a tone that balances the purity of silver with the directness of brass. Unlike the B901 model the keys are attached to a rib plate before being mounted onto the saxophone, resulting in improved resonance and tonal stability. In addition to previous models, this sax features a palm key plate that delivers high range resonance, acoustic depth, added projection and tonal stability. An upgraded metal key buffer offers increased longevity and accuracy. A double arm on the bell key lessens the chance of twisting or distortion of the tone hole cup - enabling reliable performance and tonal integrity. This sax features an original hand engraved design by highly skilled craftsmen and comes with a leatherette covered, wood shell case and Yanagisawa branded ebonite mouthpiece.

Quality Mechanisms

Yanagisawa has redesigned many elements of the baritone saxophone to make it a better instrument for advancing students and professionals alike. As standard octave key mechanisms can get sticky over time, Yanagisawa has used fluororesin, non-stick coating to ensure a reliable action with no stickiness for years to come. The C# and Bb keys have been adapted to feature a rocking table (see-saw) mechanism that enables optimal speed and fluidity between these pitches. The B9930 features metal, adjustable buffers which as opposed to a plastic material increases longevity and accuracy, as well as allowing players to have full aperture control of the bell tone holes. Yanagisawa uses blue steel springs as opposed to stainless steel as they are more efficient and hold tension more effectively, enhancing the key action. Yanagisawa provide players with equipment that is flexible to play throughout most musical ranges, so when the baritone saxophone is being played in low ranges the pads will stay well sealed because of the F-auxiliary key that Yanagisawa use on the instrument.

Premium Materials

Yanagisawa has developed the saxophone's materials in order to improve the sound of the instrument. This particular model features a stunning solid silver body which gives a wonderful tone that balances the purity of silver with the directness of brass. Also featured on this model is a newly designed, newly engineered and specially sourced brass material for improved sound and sonority. Yanagisawa's thumb rest and hook is mounted to the body by only four small points of contact, so unlike many inferior rests, it has minimal negative resonant impact. As the thumb rest is made of brass, it permits a more consistent tonal range. A white shell lining has been added to the keys to make the saxophone more eye catching and to reduce the chance of the player's fingers slipping during a technical passage.

Silver Body

The Yanagisawa B9930 is made of a custom set of materials that give it a very unique sound. The neck and body of the instrument are made from a stunning solid silver that adds clarity and warmth to the instruments tone. The brass bow and bell then aids the projection of the instrument, giving the lower notes plenty of projection and accuracy.

Pivot Screws & Bell Brace

Yanagisawa saxophones feature special pointed pivot screws in the centre of all of the arms. These screws accurately control the stability of the centre arms and help to achieve a high precision action.

The bell and body of the saxophone are linked together by a three-point, balanced brace that enables structural security and firm resonance, despite fortissimo being sought.

Hand Engraved & Ebonite Mouthpiece

For a luxury finish the Yanagisawa baritone saxophones feature an attractive and uniquely styled hand engraved pattern on the instrument's body. Also included is a Yanagisawa branded ebonite mouthpiece - a favourite among sax players. Popular because they produce lovely warm tones and are able to fit into an ensemble seamlessly.

Everything You Need

The B9930 Yanagisawa baritone saxophone includes a number of accessories that will allow you to start playing straight away. All Yanagisawa instruments come with a premium hard case, which stores the saxophone safely - ideal for transporting between rehearsals and concerts. Also included in this outfit is a top quality ebonite mouthpiece and ligature. Once you receive your parcel you will have everything that you need to play straight from the box. The trusted saxophones are individually play tested prior to being shipped - for absolute certainty of their quality.
