About the Model SS901
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 901 series alto, tenor & bari models, the 901 soprano uses the heavier construction of the 991 series instruments. This means that S901 has every bit as warm and rich of a tone as the S991. The difference between the models is that the S901 is a 1 piece body (S991 is a Dual Neck) and has range up to High F# (compared to the S991 with a High G). Both also have the same connected C#-B roller and the same overall feature set. The S901 has a more basic engraving than the S991 but otherwise they are the same instrument.
