Features
Key Work Mounting

Body Mounted
The standard design for most regular saxes, the keys are mounted directly to the saxophone body.

Octave Key Type

Overslung
An overslung octave mechanism is the standard system employed by most regular saxophones. It is the simplest mechanism for manufacture, and is to be found on 901, 902, W01 and W02 models. This system is also used on solid silver tenor models.

Octave System

Fluororesin Non-Stick Mechanism
As standard octave key mechanisms can get sticky over time, Yanagisawa's flouroresin, non-stick coating ensures a reliable action with no stickiness.

Pad Type

Air Tight Waterproof Pad
Yanagisawa's superb waterproof pad is totally air tight which allows complete confidence in the instrument's tonal integrity, plus the waterproof material offers a greatly extended pad life.

Pad Reflector

Metal Reflectors
Metal reflectors are an improvement upon the standard plastic reflectors, and they add clarity to the tone and improve playing response across the whole dynamic range.

Key Decoration

White Shell Lining
A player's fingers will rest comfortably in the indented white shell keys. The white shell also enhances the beauty of the instrument while also preventing the player's fingers from slipping during technical passages.

Palm Key Plate

WO Series Palm Key Plate
Previously only available on the 99* series saxophones, the WO Series' addition of the palm key plate delivers high range resonance, acoustic depth, added projection and added tonal stability.

Neck Plate

WO Series Neck Plate
For Overslung necks, this new plate exclusive to the WO1 and WO2 models gives a tighter, more controlled tone.

C# - Bb Keys

C# - Bb Rocking Key
The C# and Bb keys have a rocking table / see-saw mechanism that allows for optimal speed and fluidity between these pitches.

F Auxiliary Key

F-Auxiliary Key
This mechanism fitted to the F-Aux key ensures a proper seal of the pads when playing in the low ranges of the saxophone.

Front F Key

WO Series Redesigned front F Key
The Front F key on WO series saxophones has been redesigned to further improve the ease of fingering.

Right Side Key

WO Series Right Side Key
The Right side key levers on WO series saxophones now has additional feet for a better touch. This affects the Bb, C and E.

Right Pinky Key

WO Series Right Pinky Key
The angle of the Right 'Pinky' key on WO series saxophones has been improved to give a smoother fingering feel.

Bell Arm Keys

Single Arm
Yanagisawa's single arms used on the bell keys are extremely strong and have proved reliable for many years. Higher-End models can benefit from double arm bell keys.

Bell Key Buffer

Metal Adjustable
The buffers used on the bell keys are metal - and therefore offer increased longevity and accuracy over plastic - and are fully adjustable. This means the aperture of the bell toneholes are within your control.

Spring Type

Blue Steel Springs
Blue Steel Spring are better than stainless steel - as used on most other saxes - as they hold tension more effectively, and therefore enhance the key action.

Pivot Screws

Pointed Pivot Screws
Special pointed pivot screws are used in all centre arms on Yanagisawa saxophones. These screws precisely maintain the stability of the centre arms, and help achieve a very high precision action.

Bell Brace

Balanced Tri-Point Brace
The bell and body are firmly linked by a three-point, balanced brace which ensures structural resiliance and firm resonance, even when fortissimo is sought.

Bore and Tone Holes

WO Series Bore and Tone Holes
In Yanagisawa's desire to constantly innovate, all new WO series saxophones have a newly engineered bore and toneholes. This helps achieve a smoother blow and even more precise intonation.

Thumb Hook & Rest

Brass Hook and Rest
Yanagisawa's thumb rest and hook is mounted to the body by only four small points of contact, so unlike many inferior rests, it has minimal negative resonant impact. Plus, as the thumb rest is made of brass, it permits a more consistent tonal range.

Mouthpiece

Ebonite Mouthpieces
Ebonite mouthpieces are favoured for their warm tone and ability to fit into an ensemble seamlessly. However, as players discover their own voice, switching to another style of mouthpiece can open up a whole world of new tonal possibilities. Metal mouthpieces are often favoured by Jazz players or soloists who need to stand out from the crowd.

Engraving

WO1 / WO2 Style Hand Engraved
Yanagisawa WO1 and WO2 series saxophones now feature a uniquely styled, hand engraved pattern.
