Used Yanagisawa 901 Tenor Saxophone
This sax is used but in excellent condition. It shows some minor wear from normal use. Please see images for appearance.
A hardshell case and mouthpiece are included with this sax.
All used band instruments are inspected, serviced, and played tested by our repair technicians. You can be confident that they are ready to be played.
Cleaning & Sterilization
Each instrument is cleaned and any accessories such as mouthpieces, mouthpiece caps, and ligatures are sterilized. Our cleaning process utilizes a combination of ultra-sonic cleaning, the latest cleaning technology in the industry, and hand cleaning. Our Ultrasonic cleaner machine uses high-pitched sound waves and a biodegradable cleaning solution to more effectively remove debris than traditional methods which typically relied on harsh chemical baths. The absence of harsh chemicals is safer for the environment, our technicians, and most importantly, our customers and their instruments.
Instruments are only listed for sale if they are in excellent playing condition. This means that pads are sealing correctly and any mechanical parts, such as keys, valves, and slides are moving freely and functioning as they should. Cosmetically, most used band instruments will show wear and tear. This includes: scratches in the lacquer, wearing off of lacquer in certain spots, and small dings and dents.
The 901 series has long been considered to be the reference point for a professional instrument. The choice of advancing students and seasoned professionals alike, 901 series instruments are loaded with many of the mechanically superior design features that have made Yanagisawa the leader in the field.
This lacquered brass tenor model incorporates many of the innovations that make every Yanagisawa saxophone an incomparably fine instrument, plus it offers outstanding projection, full-bodied tone and lively response.
Range: Low Bb to High F#

Case: Leatherette Covered, Woodshell
BELL ARM KEYS
Yanagisawa's single arms used on the bell keys are extremely strong and have proved reliable for many years. Higher-End models can benefit from double arm bell keys.
Balanced Tri-Point Brace
The bell and body are firmly linked by a three-point, balanced brace which ensures structural resiliance and firm resonance, even when fortissimo is sought.
BELL KEY BUFFER
The buffers used on the bell keys are plastic and fully adjustable so the aperture of the bell toneholes are within your control.
BORE AND TONE HOLES
BRASS / MATERIAL
C# - BB KEYS
C# - Bb Rocking Key
The C# and Bb keys have a rocking table / see-saw mechanism that allows for optimal speed and fluidity between these pitches.
Each Yanagisawa saxophone is hand engraved by highly skilled craftsmen.
F AUXILIARY KEY
This mechanism fitted to the F-Aux key ensures a proper seal of the pads when playing in the low ranges of the saxophone.
FRONT F KEY
White Shell Lining
A player's fingers will rest comfortably in the indented white shell keys. The white shell also enhances the beauty of the instrument while also preventing the player's fingers from slipping during technical passages.
KEY WORK MOUNTING
The standard design for most regular saxes, the keys are mounted directly to the saxophone body.
Ebonite mouthpieces are favoured for their warm tone and ability to fit into an ensemble seamlessly. However, as players discover their own voice, switching to another style of mouthpiece can open up a whole world of new tonal possibilities. Metal mouthpieces are often favoured by Jazz players or soloists who need to stand out from the crowd.
OCTAVE KEY TYPE
An overslung octave mechanism is the standard system employed by most regular saxophones. It is the simplest mechanism for manufacture, and is to be found on 901, 902, AW01 and AW02 models. This system is also used on solid silver tenor models.
Fluororesin Non-Stick Mechanism
As standard octave key mechanisms can get sticky over time, Yanagisawa's flouroresin, non-stick coating ensures a reliable action with no stickiness.
Plastic reflectors fitted to the underside of the pads help the sound to project appropriately.
Air Tight Waterproof Pad
Yanagisawa's superb waterproof pad is totally air tight which allows complete confidence in the instrument's tonal integrity, plus the waterproof material offers a greatly extended pad life.
Pointed Pivot Screws
Special pointed pivot screws are used in all centre arms on Yanagisawa saxophones. These screws precisely maintain the stability of the centre arms, and help achieve a very high precision action.
RIGHT PINKY KEY
RIGHT SIDE KEY
Blue Steel Springs
Blue Steel Spring are better than stainless steel - as used on most other saxes - as they hold tension more effectively, and therefore enhance the key action.
