Description

A perfect combination of power and beauty!

Solid silver neck and body, brass bell and keys. Solid silver produces a clarity of sound unequalled by any other metal.

Description

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.

Solid silver produces a clarity of sound unequalled by any other metal. Many years of research by skilled craftsmen have resulted in the creation of the ultimate choice of sounds available to musicians today. Solid silver for its clarity and brass for its warmth and resonance. Coupled with the finest mechanism which only Yanagisawa’s skilled craftsmen can produce, the blend gives the musician his ultimate choice. Fully lacquered to minimise cleaning.

This latest AWO33 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
