One of the best curved soprano ever made

09.10.2016
I will begin by thanking Thomann and especially Andreas fro the excellent job and care they took with packaging. It is the first time in my life that I ordered a professional instrument online without having tested the instrument myself.

But with Yanagisawa's quality and Thomann's excellent packaging that was not a problem.

I bought this saxophone as a replacement for my trusted Yangisawa S991 straight soprano. While people are still debating whether straight vs curved makes a difference, to my ears the sound of this bronze, curved soprano is more sweet and mellow that its straight counterpart. I had the opportunity to test this instrument by borrowing ut from a colleague of mine before making the purchase.

I feel that the curved soprano has a a bit more resistance, which means that it requires a more breath support and it might limit the choices of mouthpieces. The mechanism is well engineered. Intonation is as good as it can get for a soprano. As a classical player this is very important for me. I still play a 1927 Buescher and have to use special fingerings, so having a modern instrument with great sound and intonation is welcome.



I am glad that I got an instrument that needed no adjustments

Outstanding

Philipp419, 04.02.2015
I have been playing the Yani S-991 for many years, also this is a wonderful instrument. Unfortunately, I always had the problem that I had the longer playing because of the hand at the "straight" soprano problems / pain. Furthermore I was in the ensemble with recordings almost too dominant audible.
This is now the past with the SC-992. The attitude is very pleasant (obviously, therefore, Jan Garbarek plays a curved soprano) and thanks to the Alto form one hears himself much better; This also helps with the intonation.
Sounds like the SC-992 reminds me rather of an Alto, but with corresponding mouthpieces / sheets is the SC-992 extremely versatile and thereby totally uncritical and compatible with many mouthpiece / blade combinations. The mechanics are so sturdy and well-processed that sometimes you think you have a tenor in your hands. In particular, high tones speak wonderfully and are in no way harsh, since surely the bronze corpus helps.
Conclusion: if you like the curved shape, there is probably no better soprano!
