AWO33 Silver Bell and Neck, Brass Bow and Body
The Yanagisawa AWO33 is made of a custom combination of materials that give it a very unique sound. The neck and bell of the instrument has been made from sterling silver, which gives a warm source of the sound and enhances that lush sound particularly at the lower octave of the instrument. The brass bow and body then aids the projection of the instrument throughout the middle of the range and gives a sharpness to the instrument with plenty of accuracy.
Yanagisawa have redesigned many concepts of the alto saxophone to make it a better instrument to play. As standard octave key mechanisms can get sticky over time, Yanagisawa's flouroresin, non-stick coating ensures a reliable action with no stickiness. The C#, Bb and B keys are all connected via a rocking / see-saw mechanism. This is a unique Yanagisawa feature and ensures the easiest transition between these pitches. The buffers used on the bell keys are metal and therefore offer increased longevity and accuracy over plastic and are fully adjustable. This means the aperture of the bell toneholes are within your control.
Top Quality Materials
Yanagisawa have redesigned the saxophone's materials in order to improve the sound of the instrument. The WO series saxophones benefit from a newly designed, newly engineered and specially sourced brass material for improved sound and sonority. Yanagisawa's thumb rest and hook is mounted to the body by only four small points of contact, so unlike many inferior rests, it has minimal negative resonant impact. Plus, as the thumb rest is made of brass, it permits a more consistent tonal range.
