About the Model T992PG
The T992PG features the same pitch stability, tonal quality and mechanical sophistication as the T991 but the Bronze body fully plated in pink gold - a mix of 80% gold and 20% silver creates a stunning finish. 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. Also the 992 series has an underslung neck for less resistance in the response and more reliable mechanics.
