Upgrade now to a professional quality bronze sax.



The upgraded replacement for the legendary T902U, this TWO2U bronze
model is suited just as well to aspiring beginners as to experienced
professionals.






Yanagisawa saxes are made by a small family company in Japan who only
make professional quality saxes, and they do it very well. This degree
of focus means they are of a quality that even their main competitors
recognise as the best. Here at Sax.co our technicians love them as they
play straight out of the box and they are by far the most reliable
instruments we sell.






The Yanagisawa T901 achieved "classic" status over the past 30 years as
a remarkable sax for the price and a leader in it's class. The T902
bronze model offered a richer, broader, more harmonically complex tone.
This new TW02U has all this and more!






Most saxes are covered in a thin lacquer to prevent them from tarnishing
but this does slightly dampen the resonance of the metal. Unlacquered
saxes such as this TW020U are very popular as they allow the metal to
resonate to it's full potential. They require cleaning to keep them
shiny or you can leave them to tarnish and fairly soon they take on a
nice vintage patina.






It has an even stronger tonal core thanks to a re-engineered bore and
tone holes, plus many upgraded feature such as:






Front F Key



A new redesigned front F key for a better feel.






Right Side Key



Additional feet under the right side key levers (B, C and high E) for a
better touch.






Right Pinky Key



New pinky key angle for smoother fingering.






New Engraving



Exquisite new hand engraving.






New Neck Plate



An additional neck plate for tightening the sound.






Palm Key plate



New palm key plate for added high range resonance, acoustic depth and
projection across all register, and exceptional tonal stability.






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






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






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 more resilient
than stainless steel (they also last much longer)






Tri-point balanced bell brace



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

Review



Yanagisawa have managed to raise the quality of their instruments
another notch, with the introduction of the WO series.






The sound delivery of any Yani horn has always been one of richness and
smoothness, while remaining free blowing throughout. This quality
remains in place on the WO horns but there is an extra degree of warmth
and just a little extra focus over and above the old brass models. I’m
sure this must be largely due to the change of brass on the O1 and O10
models.






As for the bronze models, there is less of a discernable difference
tonally but ergonomically all of the range has benefited from tweaks
within the mechanism and key-work. These are lovely new horns. Jim
