Quality Mechanisms

Yanagisawa has redesigned many elements of the soprano saxophone to make it a better instrument for both advancing students and seasoned professionals. 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#, Bb & B keys have been adapted to feature a rocking table (see-saw) mechanism that enables optimal speed and fluidity between these pitches. Yanagisawa use blue steel springs as opposed to stainless steel as they are more efficient and hold tension more effectively, therefore enhance the key action. 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.

Premium Materials

Yanagisawa has developed the saxophone's materials in order to improve the sound of the instrument. This particular model features a stunning bronze body which produces dark tones. 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. Plastic reflectors are fitted to the bottom of the pads to help the sound project as expected.

Unlacquered Bronze Body

The S902U saxophone features a stunning bronze body that offers superb tonal range with unrivalled depth and flexibility. The colour difference between the bronze body and brass mechanisms give a lovely aesthetic touch. The unlacquered finish is popular for enabling the metal material to resonate to its full potential, allowing more projection and free blowing.

Hand Engraved & Ebonite Mouthpiece

For a luxury finish the Yanagisawa soprano 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 S902U Yanagisawa soprano saxophone includes a premium leatherette covered hard case. The case stores the instrument safely so there is no need to worry about it getting damaged between rehearsals and concerts. Yanagisawa have also included a top quality ebonite mouthpiece and ligature so once you receive your parcel you will have everything that you need to play straight from the box. These trusted saxophones are individually play tested prior to being shipped - for absolute certainty of their quality.
