Yanagisawa Alto Saxophone-A9937
FEATURES
Octave system

Both ends of the octave key axis rotate in a receptacle that is coated to insure a smooth operation every time
Rocking table mechanism

The C# and Bb keys have a rocking table mechanism that allows for optimal speed and fluidity between these pitches
Double connected table key

Not only are the C# and Bb keys connected with the oscillating table mechanism, but the C# and B have also adopted this same motion
F-auxiliary key mechanism

Insures a proper seal of the pads when playing in the low range of the saxophone
"Indented" white shell keys

A player's fingers will rest comfortably in the indented white shell keys. The white shells also enhance the beauty of the instrument while also preventing the player's fingers from slipping during technical passages
Ribbed construction

Posts are connected to a single metal rib that is soldered to the body of the saxophone - this adds to the durability and longevity of the instrument
Metal thumb rests

Both thumb rests on the saxophone are metal to match with the style of the saxophone and the right hand thumb hook is adjustable so that the performer can customize the feel of their saxophone
Pointed pivot screw

The pivot screws that are used have a pointed end which facilitates an accurate center and precise action
Air-tight waterproof pad

The pads are completely air-tight which supports stability in playing and their life is extended thanks to being waterproof
Metal resonator

The metal resonators give clarity to the sound of the instrument in all dynamic ranges
Blue steel springs

Blue steel springs give the player quick response and are much more resilient than stainless steel (they also last much longer)
Double braced arm

Two separate arms connect to the pad cup to ensure proper seating of the pad and improve the durability of the instrument
Tri-point balanced bell brace

The bell and the body of the saxophone are firm connected by a tri-point balanced bell brace
