  • Yanagisawa Artist

    After 30 years with Selmer saxophones, Mike is now playing and endorsing Yanagisawa saxophones: Tenor-991-S, Alto-991-S and Soprano-991-S models, and enhanced by solid silver neck pipes on both tenor and alto.

    “Yanagisawa saxophones are beautifully crafted instruments that play in tune and encourage a full, personal sound.”
    -Mike Allen
