Yanagisawa AWO2U Alto Saxophone, Bronze Body, Unlacquered

Details
The Yanagisawa AWO2 Alto Saxophone displays a beautiful lacquered bronze finish with brass keys and is suitable for both beginners and professionals. This updated version of the legendary A902 series features a re-engineered bore and toneholes providing a stronger tonal core, as well as newly designed keywork and mechanisms. The AWO2 is an elite instrument with mechanically superior design features and is a popular choice for many. The angle of the right pinky key has been developed and now provides an improved fingering experience, whilst the right side key has some extra feet for an improved touch. The added palm key plate ensures high range resonance, acoustic depth, added projection and added tonal stability. Featuring a neck plate for a tighter, more controlled tone this saxophone also benefits from a brass material which improves sound and sonority. A single arm on the bell key provides a strong and reliable performance for years to come. Yanagisawa?s AWO2 model features an original hand engraved design by highly skilled craftsmen and comes with a fabric covered, woodshell case and Yanagisawa branded ebonite mouthpiece.

Quality Mechanisms

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.

Premium Materials

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.

Everything You Need

The AWO2 Yanagisawa alto saxophone includes a premium fabric covered hard case that comes with an outer pocket perfect for sheet music or small accessories, and back straps which are ideal for a travelling musician. The case stores the instrument safely so there is no need to worry about it getting damaged between rehearsals and concerts. Yanagisawa have also included a top quality ebonite mouthpiece and ligature so once you receive your parcel you will have everything that you need to play straight from the box. These trusted saxophones are individually play tested prior to being shipped - for absolute certainty of their quality.
