Yanagisawa A-WO1 Specifications Bore New WO Series Professional Bore Body Material Yellow Brass, Gold Lacquered Body Construction Single Post to Body Construction with Full Seat Palm Key Mount Country of Manufacture Handmade in Japan Octave Mechanism Top Mount Octave Mechanism with New Neck Plate Pads Premium Leather with Domed Resonators Mouthpiece Yanagisawa Ebonite 5 Case New Deluxe Case Yanagisawa makes the highest quality professional saxophones on the market today! They are a specialty manufacture meaning that they ONLY make professional handmade saxophones. They are a small factory blending old world craftsmanship with modern design and performance. New for 2014 - The WO Series! The new WO Series saxophones represent the first major redesign of the Yanagisawa alto sax in over 20 years! Building on the outstanding platform of the A9 series, the new WO Series altos improve on the excellence of Yanagisawa! Impeccable intonation andamp; build quality are a staple of the Yanagisawa line. The WO series bore has been further refined for a richer tone with several enhancements to the mechanical purity that is Yanagisawa! The A-WO1 replaces the A901 series. It features single post to body construction for quick response and lighter overall weight. The A-WO1 also adds the full palm key plate mount previously only available on the A99x series as well as a neck plate. While many might think these additions to be small, in the end, they add to the mass of the sax at the top of the horn adding a richer tone throughout the whole instrument. The A-WO1 offers the customer an outstanding professional level saxophone at an affordable price. These saxophones give you the highest quality in all levels without sacrificing anything.



Teflon octave system
Both ends of the octave key axis rotate in a receptacle that is coated with teflon to insure a smooth operation every time

Rocking table mechanism
The C# and Bb keys have a rocking table mechanism that allows for optimal speed and fluidity between these pitches

Double connected table key
Not only are the C# and Bb keys connected with the oscillating table mechanism, but the C# and B have also adopted this same motion

F-auxiliary key mechanism
Insures a proper seal of the pads when playing in the low range of the saxophone

"Indented" white shell keys
A player's fingers will rest comfortably in the indented white shell keys. The white shells also enhance the beauty of the instrument while also preventing the player's fingers from slipping during technical passages

Ribbed construction
Posts are connected to a single metal rib that is soldered to the body of the saxophone - this adds to the durability and longevity of the instrument

Metal thumb rests
Both thumb rests on the saxophone are metal to match with the style of the saxophone and the right hand thumb hook is adjustable so that the performer can customize the feel of their saxophone

Pointed pivot screw
The pivot screws that are used have a pointed end which facilitates an accurate center and precise action

Air-tight waterproof pad
The pads are completely air-tight which supports stability in playing and their life is extended thanks to being waterproof

Blue steel springs
Blue steel springs give the player quick response and are much more resilient than stainless steel (they also last much longer)

Double braced arm
Two separate arms connect to the pad cup to ensure proper seating of the pad and improve the durability of the instrument

Tri-point balanced bell brace
The bell and the body of the saxophone are firm connected by a tri-point balanced bell brace
