Jonbloke's review of Yanagisawa Tenor T901

★★★★★

“Great Sax”

Written on: 17/12/2013 by Jonbloke (1 review written)

Just bought one of these. I was downgrading from a Ref54 and was looking at a Yamaha 62, muriats, buffet 400 and a series 2. I have to say the Yani was in a league of its own. It may be that the yanis come better setup... but it was by far the best horn. Very easy to play, effortless at the bottom end of the range, very centred tone, lovely ergos. My only concern is the sound seems a bit less sophisticated and light compared to the ref54... but in every other respect its a better sax. As for the others, the 62 is no better than the 23. Both yamahas are well made but sound a bit industrial. The buffet sounded big, but wasn't easy to play or hold. And the series 2 was very similar in sound to the ref 54 but not as enjoyable to play.
