    Just got a T992 bronze tenor Yani...... AWESOME horn. I'm using a Ponzol stainless M2+ .110 mouthpiece with a 3.5 Fibracell reed. This horn controls tone like Yoda controls the force.

    I own a Yanagisawa soprano since a long time, but I’ve just fallen in love with her this summer, after having it correctly adjusted and having changed to a hard rubber Selmer mouthpiece.
    For what I’ve read in the threads here, and for the serial number, pics, etc. I think she can be a S800 or S880.
    Anyway, she sounds great and easy. Really a full and rich sound!!

    Over the years, after playing a MVI soprano I have had 3 yani curved sopranos: Martin Stencil, 901, and for about 2 years now, the Bronze 992. To my ears and feel this is by far the best. I use a selmer S90
    and it a good overall match in great tone quality and response from top to bottom. This is my soprano for life.

    SC991, ancient Morgan 6J, Superial 3s. The sterling silver #95 neck does have an impact on tone, still trying to decide if I like it better than stock. Unbelievably good ergos, feels like an alto with your hands closer together.

    From what I've seen, the Mk VI should be worth about $3k in decent shape. $200 for a complete overhaul sounds like an insult to the Selmer, though. You get what you pay for. I'd run from that estimate, myself. Sounds like a great way to f*** up a good sax.

    I just joined the ranks of the Yanagisawa fans. After trying one a few months ago, I couldn't get the sound out of my head (esp low Bb - smooooth)
    so I bought a new 992 Alto. Looks and plays great. Thanks to all who posted on this site to help me make my decision. My wife thanks you too.
    A SAX FOR EVERY MOOD. (apparently I have 20 moods) (make that 21)

    I have the S880 Elimona, the A992, and the T991.

    Use Selmer super session, morgan, and otto link bell tone pieces on the sop.
    dukoff and morgan on the alto and tenor.

    Reeds: V16, ZZ and plasticover.

    Tried a lot of horns and these have the greatest feel and tone for me.

    Pick up my new Yani on Thursday. Went for the T9932J. I'm buying this to replace my stolen Selmer SA 80 Ser II Black Lacquered tenor, which was Stolen from my house near Glasgow, Scotland. ( why do I live here? ). Along with it went my Gary Sugal m/p and 3 others. The Selmer has travelled the world with me since buying it in 1995. Totally gutted to have it nicked.

    The T9932J is an awesome piece of workmanship. Quite different to play than the Selmer. I just loved the sound from my Selmer and hopefully I will become attached to the Yani like I did the Selmer. I have also ordered a Theo Wanne - Ambika m/p to replace the Gary Sugal m/p. I like the sound of this with the Yani.

    Still hoping that one day soon my Selmer will be returned to me.

    Wink Re: Yanagisawa owners club

    I have just purchased a Yani T992U/L Bronze Tenor and I absolutley love it!!! I had a later (1972) MK6 which I sold recently. My plan was to buy a Mauriet 66R U/L or the Yamaha 82Z U/L. My main horn was a Yamaha 82Z in Gold Lacquer which I loved and I had no plans to switch.Then the guy in the music shop suggested I try the Yani. I was totally blown away. It's got everything for me, lovely tone dark tone, great ergs & superb action.I thought I might regret selling the MK6 but I don't.
    I am a Yani convert through and through and the Yani will now be my main horn.

    I bought my T902 used on eBay from a pawnshop 3 years ago.

    Had some lacquer missing in a few spots, a bent bell lip and the 8va key
    guide on the neck has a broken/missing tab on one side .

    Probably belonged to a careless high school kid who's parents bought it
    for him .

    Sounded incredible, and relegated my T880 to backup status which is
    saying something as that was also a great tenor and was in excellent
    shape(sold it,reluctantly..)

    Got the bell lip straightened out, but not right away as it played too well
    to take right to the shop, and it wasn't affecting the sound at all.

    Aside from a few cosmetic flaws there is no other structural damages, dents
    or dings anywhere and . . it really has an excellent sound.

    I planned on picking up a 902 Alto by now, but it hasn't happened, yet.
