Johnny-boy bought himself an old saxophone. It was made in the Yamaha factory but branded with someone else’s company logo – so it’s good quality but not an expensive thing to buy.
He says blowing it will help his condition, exercise his lungs and diaphragm, and I have to agree.
I love Japanese-built stuff. All the saxes I buy are Japanese, two of my guitars are Japanese (the third is Italian and about fifty-odd years old, so I’ll give it a pass), and I really like the combination of build-quality and consistency they have.
