About the Model SS902
The SS902 features the same pitch stability, tonal quality and mechanical sophistication as the SS901 but the bronze metal adds depth and warmth. Handmade in Japan by specialized artisan craftsmen, the Yanagisawa saxophone is the epitome of perfection on intonation, ergonomics & build quality. Yanagisawa specializes in only manufacturing handmade professional saxophones. They offer some of the best values on the planet for a professional sax. Unlike the 902 series alto, tenor & bari models, the 902 soprano uses the heavier construction of the 992 series instruments. This means that S902 has every bit as warm and rich of a tone as the S992. The difference between the models is that the S902 is a 1 piece body (S992 is a Dual Neck) and has range up to High F# (compared to the S992 with a High G). Both also have the same connected C#-B roller and the same overall feature set. The S902 has a more basic engraving than the S992 but otherwise they are the same instrument.
