Get Unparalleled Rich Tones With The Yanagisawa BW01 Baritone Saxophone
The Yanagisawa baritone saxophones have long been known for their consistent and full voice. While the newest models inherit the WO Series sound concept, they are in many ways the culmination of a new design from the ground up, with a revised tonehole layout that delivers a scale of unparalleled stability. The new WO baritone series is the perfect blend of power and sensitivity.
With its new neck design, the professional model affords a more open playing experience with less resistance and good response , and will continue to deliver its solid, rich tone even after many years of play.
- Evolution of the toneholes - Changes were made to tonehole dimensions and layout to achieve a more-balanced scale with improved tonal stability, projection, and coloring.
- Evolution of the neck - The new neck design incorporates a triangular plate to prevent notes from cracking when the instrument is played with more volume and intensity. The brace plate is also a new design.
- Evolution of the low-A key - The low-A key touch combines a new shape and angle for quicker operation.
- Evolution of the side keys - A support "leg" has been added beneath the right-hand side keys for improved tactile feedback. Design changes to the key mechanism also ensure smoother action.
- Evolution of the low C and D# keys - We've adjusted the angles of the two key touches operated by the right-hand little finger for easier reach and improved control by players with smaller hands.
- Evolution of the key guard - The new models use a larger key guard design that helps keep the instrument from becoming caught on the player's clothing during performance.
