@Colin the Bear -you've got things slightly wrong there -you want to put a Weltklang in it, bury it and forget about it.
With correct use of … oh, I dunno … a steamroller maybe … you could probably bury several Weltklangs, a couple of dead Parrots and an SSO in it.

Think I might have a vintage yani case if you want it , will check tomorrow to see if I still have it as most of my saxes are in hiscox cases
I'm guessing it would have rounded front corners and square rear ones? I'm very interested to get a proper Yany case for it. Many thanks.

I think it's a (A) "3" or a "4" made by Yanigisawa? A3 have the same type of bell- boddy brace. No high F# on A3. The model before "5". Yanigisawa began to sell thier saxes under thier own name around 1977. But there was still saxes to be sold in the shops with stencil names. The serial number says that it's a sax made in 1977? Some years later Yanigisawa introduced the T and A 500 model so maybe the wanted to clear out thier work benches and to get rid of old inventories ?
Not on the stencil ones.
The Corton Deluxe stencil (1975) by Yanagisawa that were sold in Sweden had a model number on the body. A "5" to the left.

Alto in its new old case, with its cousin above...

20220626 174137


Just played the alto for the first time (Covid has gone now). Lovely sound, not as bright as I recall my A901 was. Great flexibility too. Chops need exercise after nearly six weeks (Covid came from 2 weeks holiday) but had no trouble after I'd spent an hour of light adjustments. Eb pad was suspect but cleaned up OK for now. Nice to be playing instead of fiddling around with my new pad system. :thumb:
