Description

A classic fixed-neck soprano sax! The SWO range takes Yanagisawa one step further beyond greatness, and this first model in the series gives a beautifully rounded but equally focussed tonality. Effortlessly easy to play!

This SWO1 brass model is suited just as well to aspiring beginners as to experienced professionals. The student will develop their own style more easily due to both the improved construction and ergonomic key design, and the advanced professional can be assured of a superior tone. It has a strong tonal core thanks to a re-engineered bore and toneholes, plus many upgraded features exclusive to the WO series such as newly designed Front F Keys, Ride Side Keys and Right Pinky Key.

• Finish: Lacquered

• Key Touches: Mother of Pearl

• Neck: Fixed neck

• Engraving: Standard Engraving

• Case: Fabric Covered, Woodshell case with outer pocket and Backstraps

• Mouthpiece: Yanagisawa Ebonite

Reviews:

"Having just completed a video review of this instrument, this soprano stands out in my head as really fulfilling Yanagisawa’s aim of trying to produce a new range that has more focus and core in the tonality. You could argue that the ergonomic changes are neither here nor there, but my feeling is certainly that the newly designed bore (and I have heard re sourcing of brass material) has had a clinical effect on the tonal production; to my mind we now have something that is closer to the classic Mark VI soprano sound. Of course, we also have the usual joy of effortless tone production and spot-on intonation at the same time. Great job Yanagisawa!"- Jim Cheek (Sax.co.uk)
