Yanagisawa has quietly become one of the most respected companies in the market. The Yani 9930 Alto is a solid silver body and neck, with the seamless ergonomics and intonation that makes this the horn for the discerning player. What is most notable about this horn is the evenness of the tone from top to bottom, including the extremes of the registers. If you are looking for a horn with a big, warm sound and keywork that just makes your job that much easier, then this is the horn you've been looking for. Or you could continue working too hard on your current set up, your choice.
