Yanagisawa AWO1U Alto Saxophone
Yanagisawa AWO1U Alto Saxophone – Professional Model. The upgraded replacement for the legendary A901 series, this AWO1 brass model is suited just as well to aspiring beginners as to experienced professionals. 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, 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.)
Range: Low Bb to High F#
