Yanagisawa has redesigned many elements of the alto saxophone to make it a better instrument for both beginners and professionals. As standard octave key mechanisms can get sticky over time, Yanagisawa has used fluororesin, non-stick coating to ensure a reliable action with no stickiness for years to come. The C# and Bb keys have been adapted to feature a rocking table (see-saw) mechanism that enables optimal speed and fluidity between these pitches. Yanagisawa use blue steel springs as opposed to stainless steel as they are more efficient and hold tension more effectively, therefore enhance the key action. Yanagisawa saxophones feature special pointed pivot screws in the centre of all of the arms. These screws accurately control the stability of the centre arms and help to achieve a high precision action. This saxophone has an overslung octave mechanism which is a standard fitting for most saxophones.
Yanagisawa has developed the saxophone's materials in order to improve the sound of the instrument. This particular model features a stunning bronze body. A white shell lining has been added to the keys to make the saxophone more eye catching and to reduce the chance of the player's fingers slipping during a technical passage.
Lacquered Bronze Body
The AWO2 saxophone has a stunning bronze body. The colour difference between the bronze body and brass mechanisms give a lovely aesthetic touch.
Hand Engraved & Ebonite Mouthpiece
For a luxury finish the Yanagisawa alto saxophones feature an attractive and uniquely styled hand engraved pattern on the instrument's body. Also included is a Yanagisawa branded ebonite mouthpiece - a favourite among sax players. Popular because they produce lovely warm tones and are able to fit into an ensemble seamlessly.
