Experience Enhanced Tonal Range - The Yanagisawa AW010 Eb Alto Saxophone - Lacquered

Since 1896, Yanagisawa has remained steadfast in their passion for crafting unrivaled saxophones known for their exquisite tone and ease of play. Their superb ergonomic key-work has earned them the loyalty and respect of professionals worldwide. Whether you're a student seeking a high-quality saxophone or a professional looking for top-level instruments, Yanagisawa's handcrafted, Japanese-made saxophones ensure an exceptional playing experience.

Their latest addition, the WO series of Alto Saxophones, exemplifies their commitment to continual improvement, featuring refined key types for enhanced comfort, a unique palm key plate for broad register resonance, and a special neck plate for focused tone, reaffirming their reputation for instrumental brilliance. Notably, top-level artists like Antonio Hart, Marshall McDonald, Tommy Smith, and Snake choose Yanagisawa saxophones.

The AWO10 brass model, an upgraded replacement for the renowned A991 series, caters to accomplished players.

Additionally, it boasts upgraded features exclusive to the WO series, including newly designed Front F Keys, Ride Side Keys, and Right Pinky Key.

  • Fluororesin-sleeved octave rocker

    Lost motion is eliminated and smooth octave-key action is ensured by rounding the octave rocker ends and Fluororesin-coating the receiving sleeves they contact.

  • C#-Bb table key linkages

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

  • C#-B table key linkages

    The additional slider mechanism between the C# and B table keys is a proprietary Yanagisawa design that allows smoother finger transitions between these notes.

  • 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.

  • 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 strength 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, and projection across all registers, and exceptional tonal stability.

  • Metal thumb hook and 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 fit.

  • 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 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 and rigidity and enhances resonance even at fortissimo levels.
