Here is the final piece in the jigsaw puzzle – the WO series curved sopranos! The SCWO10 brings us another level of excellence beyond the 900 series models. One of the finest curved sopranos in the world, this sax will deliver impeccable tone and intonation, whilst giving the player a perfectly engineered and incredibly comfortable keywork and mechanism.


Yanagisawa have made several improvements in key mechanism, sound and intonation. Firstly, here are the mechanism changes:

1. Change of angle of the right little finger keys for smoother fingerings

2. Modified angle of the left palm keys for better fingering

3. Adopted German Silver to strengthen the rod on the G key

4. Redesigned G# key cup to perfect intonation

5. Detachable brace between bow and body added – allows technicians to make repairs more easily!

Secondly, here are the changes for in sound and intonation:

1. Overall readjustment of tone hole sizes and positions to facilitate better intonation

2. New source of brass

And finally, there is a new back-pack style case. It has a new outer compartment, giving the player even more storage possibilities. A shoulder strap is also included.

Staff Review

This little beauty makes the process of playing the curved soprano highly joyful! Sometimes I find that playing the curved soprano can fell like an awkward experience – the hands are so high and the fingering can feel fumbly; however, Yanagisawa have designed the most user-friendly key ergonomics, taking the already high level of design from the 900 series and improving again even further. I like the re-angled palm keys – all three of them feel like they are an even distance away from any point in the palm, making them really easy to access. Lovely stuff!
