PRODUCT FEATURES

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.

BORE AND TONE HOLES
WO Series Bore and Tone Holes
In Yanagisawa's desire to constantly innovate, all new WO series saxophones have a newly engineered bore and toneholes. This helps achieve a smoother blow and even more precise intonation.

BRASS / MATERIAL
WO Series Brass Material
The WO series saxophones benefit from a newly designed, newly engineered and specially sourced brass material for improved sound and sonority.

C# - BB KEYS
C# - Bb Rocking Key
The 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 KEY
F-Auxiliary Key
This 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 Key
The Front F key on WO series saxophones has been redesigned to further improve the ease of fingering.

KEY DECORATION
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.

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

MOUTHPIECE
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.

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

OCTAVE KEY TYPE
Overslung
An overslung 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, AW01 and AW02 models. This system is also used on solid silver tenor models.

OCTAVE SYSTEM
Fluororesin Non-Stick Mechanism
As standard octave key mechanisms can get sticky over time, Yanagisawa's flouroresin, non-stick coating ensures a reliable action with no stickiness.

PAD TYPE
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.

PALM KEY PLATE
WO Series Palm Key Plate
Previously 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.

PIVOT SCREWS
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.

RIGHT PINKY KEY
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.

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

SPRING TYPE
Blue Steel Springs
Blue 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.

- Your local "luthier" is not God. We have received -numerous- false claims by a customer's local "luthier" (aka Youtube specialist / self-proclaimed master of the universe) that a guitar has a bad neck set, has a warped neck, broken truss rod, looks at them funny, or is just generally not good to them because they want to sell them their own service work or guitar. These claims will not be considered valid and you'll have to take the issue up with the manufacturer that covers the instrument under their warranty policies and procedures. Once the instrument is inspected or evaluated by another "luthier", the instrument is considered altered and void of return. Period. No exceptions.

- All damages incurred during shipment will be the responsibility of the shipping company which delivered the item (USPS or UPS). A claim will be filed immediately and claim number confirmation issued to the recipient. The recipient will hold on to the damaged item and all of its packing contents / materials until the claim has been resolved in one of the following manners: the item is picked up by the shipping company for salvage and the recipient will then be reimbursed in full; the claim is rejected at which point we will seek further evidence to appeal and issue refund upon the case outcome; the shipping company advises us the damages are not their responsibility (at which point we will appeal and seek return of the damaged item for refund / replacement). Any attempt to return the item immediately and not follow these procedure voids any refund / return remedies. Please be advised that all of our outgoing packaging is high-definition video-recorded to avoid claims of damages occurring prior to shipment

- A restocking fee of 30% (or more) will be assessed if an item is not returned in its original sold condition. The return must include the original box, all factory paperwork / case candy, pickguard film, cables, tools, etc. and be un-warranted with the manufacturer.
