With resonance and a refined sound, the 991 series has outstanding evenness of intonation over its entire range at all dynamic levels. The 991 series has various upgrades over the 901 series: The double arm support on the low keys ensures better pad seating and a stronger low end sound. The posts that hold the keys in place are mounted onto strong support ribs that run the length of the instrument; this adds weight and support to the body and influences the carrying power of the tone. Also the 991 series has an underslung neck for less resistance in the response and more reliable mechanics.
This saxophone is slightly used, with signs of lacquer wear off of touch points and light scratches around the bell.
