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 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.

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.

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

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

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

F-Auxiliary KeyThis 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 KeyThe Front F key on WO series saxophones has been redesigned to further improve the ease of fingering.

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.

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

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.

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

Octave Key Type – An over slung 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 MechanismAs standard octave key mechanisms can get sticky over time, Yanagisawa's flouroresin, non-stick coating ensures a reliable action with no stickiness.

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.

WO Series Palm Key PlatePreviously 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.

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.

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.

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

Blue Steel Springs 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.
