      Comments about Yanagisawa S991 Professional Soprano Saxophone:

      I own one of these horns and could not ask for a better soprano. The tone and intonation are impeccable and the response is unparalleled. I compared the S991 with comparable horns by other brands and the S991 dominated in every way. The most exciting characteristic of this horn is the superior response throughout the entire range of the instrument. A quality, supported tone is essentially effortless; the player never has to fight with the horn! Yanigasawa has a reputation for having the best soprano and bari saxes and I agree wholeheartedly.
