Description

Yanagisawa AWO10S Alto Saxophone

Yanagisawa AWO10S Alto Saxophone – Elite Model. The upgraded replacement for the highly regarded A991 series, this AWO10 brass model is the instrument for the accomplished player. It delivers a superb tonal range thanks to a re-engineered bore and toneholes, and re-sourced and redesigned core brass material. This model also has many upgraded features exclusive to the WO series such as newly designed front F keys, right side keys and right pinky key.

Advanced technologies and features the player in mind.

Each and every component and Yanagisawa-exclusive mechanism embody the spirit of an endless quest for the ultimate in tone and ergonomics – qualities that set our saxophones apart from the pack. Forefinger control of the palm-F key broadens the range of possibilities for altissimo harmonics. The ideal setting is possible because this mechanism allows the opening of the high-F key pad to be adjusted independently. The tri-point bell-bow brace ensures structural stability and rigidity and enhances resonance even at fortissimo levels. Designed to make minimal point contact with the body, the thumb hook enables the instrument to resonate more freely while the brass thumb rest allows for smoother response and improved tonal balance.
(Gold-plated on 992 and 993 models.)

Octave system
Both ends of the octave key axis rotate in a receptacle that is coated 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
Double connected table key
Not only are the C# and Bb keys connected with the oscillating table mechanism, but the C# and B have also adopted this same motion
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
Ribbed construction
Posts are connected to a single metal rib that is soldered to the body of the saxophone – this adds to the durability and longevity of the instrument
Metal thumb rests
Both thumb rests on the saxophone are metal to match with the style of the saxophone and the right hand thumb hook is adjustable so that the performer can customize the feel of their saxophone
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 much more resilient than stainless steel (they also last much longer)
Double braced arm
Two separate arms connect to the pad cup to ensure proper seating of the pad and improve the durability of the instrument
Tri-point balanced bell brace
The bell and the body of the saxophone are firm connected by a tri-point balanced bell brace
