Yanagisawa Sax Review - SC901 - Curved Soprano

I had always been on the sceptical side when it came to curved sopranos and I suppose I considered them a little 'toy-like' - if I am completely honest, a bit gimmicky. If Yanagisawa continues to make superb instruments like these then I am totally changed in my opinion. The SC901 is a serious instrument and yet is great fun to play. That seems to be the case with 901s from soprano to baritone. They are light, easy to play, very free blowing, expressive and all round good fun. They epitomise what playing music is all about, and the SC901 is no exception. It responded well, I could produce a very clear and musical sound, the action was light and it felt very solid in my hands. My only criticism is the left hand table key mechanism, which I found hard work. The keys are well spaced out, are quite big and sliding between them is not the easiest. Having said that, when playing soprano I never find myself playing down there much, or at least rarely find the need to slide from low B to say Bb so I didn't think this was a huge disadvantage.
