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:

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.

Metal thumb hook & rest;

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.

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.

Double-arm keys;

Dual arms prevent larger key cups from twisting or flexing under pressure and also improve durability.

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.
