I have found that the silver-plated and black lacquered models have more "meat" to the sound.  I played the AW037 model once and it was one of the best playing altos I have ever played!

Yanagisawa saxophones are very high quality with outstanding overall response and intonation.  Yanagisawa has been making musical instruments for well over 100 years so they are not new to the process of building a quality saxophone.  Sound quality is somewhat brighter than other brands, but very good and usable especially in playing situations where you need more presence and some edge to your sound.  Every bit as good as a Selmer or Yamaha at a lower price!
