Yanagisawa only makes top quality saxophones and the 991 is a full blown, no excuses, pro model. This horn features a rich, black lacquer finish. Along with elegance of construction it is our belief that mechanically there is no better saxophone being manufactured today. It has a rich lyrical tone and is fast becoming the instrument of choice of some of today's most discriminating performers. Comes with case, strap and mouthpiece.
