Unlike the AWO10S, the AWO20S features a bronze body which produces a darker edgier sound, making it great for mellow music. As well as that, the colour difference between the bronze body and brass mechanisms give a lovely aesthetic touch.
Yanagisawa has redesigned many concepts of the alto saxophone to make it a better instrument for modern day players. As standard octave key mechanisms can get sticky over time, Yanagisawa's fluororesin, 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 has 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.

All Yanagisawa instruments come with a premium hard case, which stores your sax safely when transporting between rehearsals and concerts.
