About the Model SS992PG
The SS992PG features the same pitch stability, tonal quality and mechanical sophistication as the SS991 but the Bronze body fully plated in pink gold - a mix of 80% gold and 20% silver creates a stunning finish. This plating and the lack of lacquer enhances a wonderful tonal clarity which we have found especially popular with classical players. The pink gold horns only have a limited run each year. They are 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. With resonance and a refined sound the 992 series has outstanding evenness of intonation over its entire range at all dynamic levels.
The 992 series has various upgrades over the 902 series: The body is 2 piece and comes supplied with a straight and curved neck. The posts that hold the keys in place are mounted onto strong support straps that run the length of the instrument, this adds weight and support to the body and influences the carrying power of the tone.
