Yanagisawa Saxophone Gallery

Hi.  Pete, here.  I’m working on a complete rewrite of theses Yanagisawa pages and have been since June 2014.  You can see what I’ve got so far HERE.  I’ve also posted some updates to the Yanagisawa serial number charts.  I also have a Forum topic where I talk about my current progress.

Note that the pictures in this article, here, for the 6, 500, 800, and 880 Series horns might be incorrectly categorized.  I’m working on it.

  2. Hello, I recently bought a vintage Yanagisawa alto saxophone in perfect (almost new) condition. The serial number : 11761XX and 5 at the left side of the yanagisawa logo. On the bell : made by Yanagisawa with the logo above it and a small engraving. It has stainless steel springs and a high f#. According to the serial number I would think it’s an A5, but it has stainless steel springs and there are some differences with the pictures of A5 saxophones I found on the internet. I think the construction year is 1976 according to the serial number.
    It plays great after the complete overhaul and it has a lot of power…
    Can anybody identify this model ?

  5. Hi
    I have a Yanagisawa Alto with a serial number A5-17111XX that has been gifted to me by a friend.
    It needs re padding and re corking and possibly a new neck piece and reeds.
    How much approximately would it cost to re condition and what is it value after the recon.
