Yanagisawa “Whitehall” Alto Sax
This is a “Whitehall” alto sax made by Yanagisawa.
It was being sold back in the days when a Japanese name like “Yanagisawa” seemed foreign and the marketeers figured it would scare off potential buyers. That is far from the case now. Now, Japanese-made horns are esteemed as among the finest.
The serial number is 4701120. I wonder if this means it was made in 1970???
This horn is keyed up to Hi F#.
We replaced all the stack pads to get a better seal: D, E, F, F#, G#, G, A, Bb and C….as well as a few others.
The lyre-holder was removed before I received the horn. You can see some denting where it used to reside.
The horn comes in a Yamaha-syle case.
