is a very well cared for solid silver Yanagisawa tenor. The bell, body
and neck are all made in solid silver and the keywork is lacquered
brass. The only lacquer wear is on the usual wear areas.
Mechanically, the horn is in excellent shape - neck, bottom bow, bell
and bell flare have never been damaged or repaired. There is only
evidence of a tiny ding below the low C# key.
We have gone through the horn to ensure it is in top playing condition,
and with Yanagisawa's well deserved reputation for excellence in
craftmanship. the setup should last for a long time!
The solid silver gives the horn a very interesting voice. It has a rich
and deep tonal color that is slightly on the darker side when playing
at low and medium levels. There is a slightly wider tonal feel and a
lot of interesting textures in the sound. It is quite powerful and with
brilliance when pushed yet a nice, resonant "dark sparkle" at moderate
