The World’s Finest
We believe our saxophones are alive
“Without the right frame of mind, the cra sman may master the form but still fail to give the instrument a soul, producing nothing more than the hollow,
lifeless shell of a saxophone.
Musical instruments are not industrial goods.
The sensitivities of the cra sman and the ability to give life to the form are essential to the art of instrument-making.
That is the basic philosophy that Yanagisawa embraced in its earliest founding days and the same philosophy that we apply today, and I am confident it shines through the saxophones we make.”
- Nobushige Yanagisawa
