About the Model B992P
The B992PG features the same pitch stability, tonal quality and mechanical sophistication as the B991 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 double arm support on the low keys ensures better pad seating and a stronger low end sound. 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.
