Sophisticated Craftsmanship For Sophisticated Players - The Yanagisawa SWO1 Professional Soprano Saxophone - Brass

SW01 - Professional Model. This SWO1 brass model is suited just as well to aspiring beginners as to experienced professionals. The student will develop their own style more easily due to both the improved construction and ergonomic key design, and the advanced professional can be assured of a superior tone. It has a strong tonal core thanks to a re-engineered bore and toneholes, plus many upgraded features exclusive to the WO series such as newly designed Front F Keys, Ride Side Keys and Right Pinky Key.


Bell Arm Keys

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.

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.

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 Rocking Key

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

WO1 / WO2 Style Hand Engraved

Yanagisawa WO1 and WO2 series saxophones now feature a uniquely styled, hand engraved pattern.

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.

WO Series Redesigned Front F Key

The Front F key on WO series saxophones has been redesigned to further improve the ease of fingering.

White Shell Key Decoration

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 Key Work

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

Left Palm Key

Modified angle of the left palm keys ensuring easier fingering.

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 Overslung necks, this new plate exclusive to the WO1 and WO2 models gives a tighter, more controlled tone.

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.

Metal Reflectors

Metal reflectors are an improvement upon the standard plastic reflectors, and they add clarity to the tone and improve playing response across the whole dynamic range.

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 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.

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 achiev
