Baritone Saxophone Yanagisawa B992
Yanagisawa B992 - Professional
The introduction of bronze allows a before-unheard delicacy and warmth of tone to the baritone without sacrifice of power and projection. This and all the enhanced features found in the B-991 are present in this bronze version.
Benefitting from the upgraded systems of all the 99 series the 992 has double arm low key supports for a stronger low end sound and better pad seating. The pillars are also mounted to long straps that run down the body providing weight and support to the sound and strength to the construction.
A sublime saxophone, the warmth gained by the bronze is because the base copper content is increased. This also results in less zinc which is responsible for projection. So, if you want unrelenting power and projection go for a 991, if you want a little more warmth and subtlety go for a 992.
Bronze brass lacquered, Low A range, Yanagisawa sway-free mechanism for F auxiliary and low C-sharp keys, which affords better air tightness. Best quality Japanese materials and mechanisms. Supplied with a deluxe woodshell case and quality ebonite mouthpiece.
