The pro Tec case is complete with the shoulder strap as well as the backpack straps. This is my opinion on how the sax plays. The sax is really in tune.
Not as refined as the new Yanagisawas but with a darker, more barking tone. I feels more like a vintage sax in how it takes the air. Many compare this horn with a Mark VI but I don't think they are very similar. If I had to compre it with a Selmer I would put it more on the super action 80 I / Mark VII territory, with a nicer pinky table. The rest of the ergos are comparable but not as refined, yet less bulky than on those Selmers.Blows pretty much like like a nice Mark VII or SA80 but I believe that the Selmers project more and have that singing quality that is really difficult to emulate. It is "meaty", spread and big sounding like those horns though, and very fun to play. If I had to compare it with a new Taiwanese horn like a PMauriat, I would favor the Yani. I had a really nice 2009 PMX66R that sounded somehow similar but this horn feels lighter and is still working great after all this years. The Mark VI seems to be more focused and flexible and the ergos feel smaller and that's why I wouldn't compare them, but this horn was actually a very decent backup for my Mark VI. To me, some of the new Yanis or even 61 Yamahas or Custom Z Yamahas are more Mark Vi like. You can do your own research on these horns. I think is a very comfortable sax with lots of personality and a ver good value. SORRY BUT US CONTINENTAL BUYERS ONLY. The item "Yanagisawa Tenor Sax T4.
