Overview

Yanagisawa A-WO1 Alto Saxophone - Lacquer


 

The AW01 Professional Model is the upgraded replacement for the hugely successful A901 series. The AWO1 lacquered brass model is a great choice for aspiring students as well as 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, Ride Side Keys and Right Pinky Key. An additional plate on the neck of the WO1 & WO2 which helps tighten the core of the sound.

In addition to these new playing features the AWO series features a new style of engraving and a new style case with an additional pocket and backpack design making the new AWO series a more complete package.


 

Features:

Adjustable front F key;

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.

C#-Bb table key linkage;

The Seesaw linkage between the C# and Bb table keys facilitates faster, smoother fingering technique.

Genuine mother-of-pearl touches;

Indented mother-of-pearl key touches are attractive, afford the fingertips a more natural fit and feel and are less slippery than plastic touches when wet.

Palm-key reinforcement plate/Integrated post-rib construction;

Primarily intended to add strengh to the soldered interface between key posts and the body, the palm-key reinforcement plate and stack-post ribs also protect the body from damage should a post receive an accidental blow. They also add mid-range resonance, acoustic depth, projection across all registers and exceptional tonal stability.

Pointed pivot screws;

For the utmost in precision and reliability, pointed pivot screws ensure that center arms or hinge rods are an exact.

Sealed, waterproof pads;

Airtight pads facilitate balanced, leak-free play while quality waterproofing extends pad service life.

Needle springs;

Blued-steel needle springs are more elastic than the stainless-steel variety, offer faster action and render a better command of difficult passages.

Tri-point brace;

The tri-point bell-bow brace ensures structural stability, rigidity and enhances resonance even at fortissimo levels.

Adjustable vibration-damping bar;

This enhancement dampens sympathetic vibrations in the right-hand F# key, thus stabilizing the production of notes in the lower register.
