5 YEAR EXTENDED WARRANTY SCHEME

The product price includes a one year warranty and 30 day money back guarantee.

However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 5 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 90 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first two years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 5 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

Yanagisawa S992U Soprano Saxophone, Unlacquered Bronze Body

Details
The Yanagisawa S992U Soprano Saxophone comes with an unlacquered finish and is ideal for advancing students. It has been a go-to instrument for professionals for some time now. The S99 series consists of elite instruments with mechanically superior design features and is a popular choice for many. The difference between this saxophone and the S992 model is the unlacquered finish - popular for enabling the metal material to resonate to its full potential, allowing more projection and free blowing. A single arm on the bell key provides a strong and reliable performance for years to come. The main distinction between the S992/U models and the S991 it the upgraded metal reflector that this one has, as opposed to the plastic version that the S991 has. Metal reflectors add clarity to the tone and improve the playing response across the whole dynamic range. Yanagisawa’s S992U model comes with a straight and a curved neck piece which enables players to find their optimum playing angle and comfort. This sax features an original hand engraved design by highly skilled craftsmen and comes with a leatherette covered, woodshell case and Yanagisawa branded ebonite mouthpiece.

Quality Mechanisms

Yanagisawa has redesigned many elements of the soprano saxophone to make it a better instrument for both advancing students and professionals. As standard octave key mechanisms can get sticky over time, Yanagisawa has used fluororesin, non-stick coating to ensure a reliable action with no stickiness for years to come. The C#, Bb & B keys have been adapted to feature a rocking table (see-saw) mechanism that enables optimal speed and fluidity between these pitches. Yanagisawa use blue steel springs as opposed to stainless steel as they are more efficient and hold tension more effectively, therefore enhance the key action. Yanagisawa saxophones feature special pointed pivot screws in the centre of all of the arms. These screws accurately control the stability of the centre arms and help to achieve a high precision action. This model features rib plate mounting, the keys are mounted to the rib plate before being mounted to the body of the instrument. The result of this process is improved resonance and tonal stability. This saxophone has an underslung octave mechanism which produces a much quicker, more responsive action.

Premium Materials

Yanagisawa has developed the saxophone's materials in order to improve the sound of the instrument. This particular model features a stunning bronze body. A white shell lining has been added to the keys to make the saxophone more eye catching and to reduce the chance of the player's fingers slipping during a technical passage.

Unlacquered Bronze Body

The S992U saxophone features a stunning bronze body that produces darker, richer tones than brass.

Hand Engraved & Ebonite Mouthpiece

For a luxury finish the Yanagisawa soprano saxophones feature an attractive and uniquely styled hand engraved pattern on the instrument's body. Also included is a Yanagisawa branded ebonite mouthpiece - a favourite among sax players. Popular because they produce lovely warm tones and are able to fit into an ensemble seamlessly.

Everything You Need

The S992U Yanagisawa soprano saxophone includes a premium leatherette covered hard case. The case stores the instrument safely so there is no need to worry about it getting damaged between rehearsals and concerts. Yanagisawa have also included a top quality ebonite mouthpiece and ligature so once you receive your parcel you will have everything that you need to play straight from the box. These trusted saxophones are individually play tested prior to being shipped - for absolute certainty of their quality.
