You asked… a lot.
So I went looking for a cheap yet good, baritone saxophone that you can order online with confidence.
Well in the end, a great yet affordable baritone saxophone found me and I’m going to tell you all about it today.
In the video I compare the Singer’s Day Baritone Sax to my Yanagisawa B-901 which is a professional instrument and certainly a good point of reference for comparison.
I am told that the design of the Singer’s Day Baritone Saxophone is inspired by the Yanagisawa horn so let’s examine the similarities and differences.
First let’s talk about the price. a new Yanagisawa horn equivalent to this one will cost you about $7000
So the professional sax costs 3 times the price, but is it a 3x better instrument?
And just because the Singer’s Day is more affordably priced, does that mean it’s not up to professional performance?
Watch the video and listen to me playing both of them and see if one sounds better than the other.
Listening back, I can hardly tell the difference between the two saxophones. I will say that the Yanagisawa B-901 is more fun to play and has a slightly better tone from the perspective of the player, but to be fair, the Yanagisawa is about as good as it gets when it comes to baritone saxophones, and the Singer’s Day horn is really not all that far behind.
This instrument is very well made and is an extremely good copy of the Yanagisawa overall just at a much lower price.
