Yanagisawa SC9930 Curved Soprano Saxophone, Sterling Silver

Get the beautifully designed & finely crafted Yanagisawa SC9930 Soprano Saxophone

The Yanagisawa SC9930 Soprano Saxophone features the same pitch stability, tonal quality and mechanical sophistication as the Yanagisawa SC991 sax but the sterling silver neck and body provide an extra shimmer on the high end. Keeping brass on the bow and bell help prevent the horn from being as bright a solid sterling silver horn, but still gives some of the desired characteristics of sterling silver. This Yanagisawa soprano sax is a beautifully designed and finely crafted Yanagisawa saxophone. Its increased neck angle gives it richer tone and makes it more capable of aggressive playing. The bell keys have been moved to the right side of the bell and the left hand pinky mechanism has been improved to a modern style cluster like current altos. A great instrument with top tuning, ease of play and bullet proof manufacturing.

Octave system

Both ends of the octave key axis rotate in a receptacle that is coated to insure a smooth operation every time
   
Rocking table mechanism

The C# and Bb keys have a rocking table mechanism that allows for optimal speed and fluidity between these pitches
   
Double connected table key

Not only are the C# and Bb keys connected with the oscillating table mechanism, but the C# and B have also adopted this same motion
   
"Indented" white shell keys

A player's fingers will rest comfortably in the indented white shell keys. The white shells also enhance the beauty of the instrument while also preventing the player's fingers from slipping during technical passages
   
Metal thumb rests

Both thumb rests on the saxophone are metal to match with the style of the Yanagisawa saxophone and the right hand thumb hook is adjustable so that the performer can customize the feel of their saxophone

Pointed pivot screw

The pivot screws that are used have a pointed end which facilitates an accurate center and precise action
   
Air-tight waterproof pad

The pads are completely air-tight which supports stability in playing and their life is extended thanks to being waterproof
   
Metal resonator

The metal resonators give clarity to the sound of the instrument in all dynamic ranges   

Blue steel springs

Blue steel springs give the player quick response and are much more resilient than stainless steel (they also last much longer)
   
Tri-point balanced bell brace

The bell and the body of the saxophone are firm connected by a tri-point balanced bell brace
