About the Model SS991S
The SS991S features the same pitch stability, tonal quality and mechanical sophistication as the SS991 but the silver plate adds a brightness to both the finish and the tone. 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 991 series has outstanding evenness of intonation over its entire range at all dynamic levels.
The 991 series has various upgrades over the 901 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.
