Is the Yanagisawa baritone the same as the 991 Alto?
The Yanagisawa baritone plays with the same ease, consistency and facility as the 991 alto. Years later I acquired a 991 soprano. Admittedly, I am not much of a soprano player, but I definitely feel as though I could be if I spent enough time with this horn. My point is that I have been a bit of a Yanagisawa fan boy for the last 10 years.
How does the Yanagisawa 880 sound compared to the Mark VI?
The Mark VI sounds great as it should, but the 880 sounds great too. There is a difference in how the resonance feels to me though. I feel the Yanagisawa to have a fuller core. It also feels warmer which maybe is to say I perceive more lower frequencies in the sound spectrum.
Is a Yanagisawa horn better than a Selmer?
As a technician I can say without hesitation that any Yanagisawa is much easier to get into top playing shape and keep it there long term than any Selmer especially the older horns. If you don’t have the benefit of being able to do your own repairs and adjustments, this is a very important factor in choosing a horn.
