THIS BLOG IS NO LONGER BEING UPDATED.  Please join us at http://woodwindforum.com/forum


Howdy.  I’m Pete, one of the founders of the Woodwind Forum (WF).

Ed shifted primary ownership of this website to Gandalfe (Jim) and me in March (or so) 2014.  Soon after, I also roped Helen into this as another Administrator on the WF forums.

This particular portion of the WF had been offline since the website got hacked about a year or so ago.  My apologies for taking so long to get it back up: this portion of the WF was almost 100% Ed’s and I never paid too much attention to it, other than to refer people here for Yanagisawa stuff.


  • The bestest place you can go for new stuff is the Woodwind Forum, itself.  It’s a fun place where the rules boil down to, “Be excellent to each other and don’t spam.”
  • We have an official blog that we’ve been slowly trying to get online.  It’s over here.  It’s primarily run by Helen.
  • We have an official Facebook page.  It’s over here.  It’s primarily run by Gandalfe (Jim).
  • We have an unofficial picture page on my blog.  We have a couple unofficial large picture galleries at Helen’s website and my website.  Primarily saxophones on both, but we have a few other interesting horns.

When I last checked, there were 50 new comments here.  Well, “new” as in “posted before this place broke.”  No guarantees as to when I’ll answer them.  Again, sorry about that.  I’m probably going to try to integrate this blog with our official one.  It might take awhile, though!

  1. Ed,

    great Yanagisawa page! I am enjoying my T880 so much, I think it will be my last tenor, I also have a SN900 (I think: the model is not stamped) curved sop.

    To add to the Yani info page, I was wondering you would be interested in a Yani UK (Rosetti was the distributor) catalogue from the 80s, it is the one featuring the 6 and 800 models.
    I also have the later 900 catalogue, but I’m sure you have already seen that.

    let me know (unless you already have a copy!) and I’ll scan and email you a copy!
