Re: Yamaha vs Yanagisawa
I have played all four horns and i couldnt stop coming back to the 991 everytime. They are all top horns, i narrowed it down to the 82z and 991 when i was trying out new saxes, 82 feeling better than 62. the 991 and 992 are identical apart from bronze body, i prefered sound of 991 (personal preferance).
so was left with 991 vs 82z. to my mind the 991 felt more comfortable under the fingers. you really have to try them if you can. but as others have said they are all top horns and if you just bought one on spec i doubt you would be disapointed. (until you tried one of the others down the line when the chance came along and realised it would have suited you better!!)
I love my 991 and have never regretted choosing it although ive played other great horns.
try, try and try some more!!!
