Get An Instrument For The Accomplished Player That Delivers A Superb Tonal Range With Unrivalled Depth And Flexibility - The Yanagisawa TWO10 Elite Bb Brass Tenor Saxophone

The TWO10 is Yanagisawa's traditional brass tenor saxophone with upgraded components.  It has earned high marks for mechanical reliability and a tight tonal core with great projection. The WO10 series has various upgrades over the WO1 series: The double arm support on the low keys ensures better pad seating and a stronger low end sound. The posts that hold the keys in place are mounted onto strong support straps that run the length of the instrument; this adds weight and support to the body and influences the carrying power of the tone. Also the WO10 series has an underslung neck for less resistance in the response and more reliable mechanics.


  • Bell Arm Keys: Using double arms on the Bell Keys, helps to keep the tone holes fully sealed by removing the chances of twisting or distortion of the tone hole cup. This in turn helps ensure reliable performance and tonal integrity.
  • Brass / Material: The WO series saxophones benefit from a newly designed, newly engineered and specially sourced brass material for improved sound and sonority.
  • Engraving: Yanagisawa WO10 and WO20 series saxophones now feature a uniquely styled, hand engraved pattern.
  • Key Work Mounting: This is an enhanced design with the keys mounted to a rib plate which in turn is mounted to the body. This not only gives added strength to the keywork, but has the added benefit of improved resonance and tonal stability.
  • Mouthpiece: 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.
  • Octave System: As standard octave key mechanisms can get sticky over time, Yanagisawa's flouroresin, non-stick coating ensures a reliable action with no stickiness.
  • 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: 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.
  • Bell Arm Keys: Double Arm.Using double arms on the Bell Keys, helps to keep the tone holes fully sealed by removing the chances of twisting or distortion of the tone hole cup. This in turn helps ensure reliable performance and tonal integrity.
  • 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 - B Rocking Key: The C#, Bb and B keys are all connected via a rocking / see-saw mechanism. This is a unique Yanagisawa feature and ensures the easiest transition between these pitches.
  • Engraving: WO10 / WO20 Style Hand Engraved. Yanagisawa WO10 and WO20 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.
  • 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: Rib Mounted. This is an enhanced design with the keys mounted to a rib plate which in turn is mounted to the body. This not only gives added strength to the keywork, but has the added benefit of improved resonance and tonal stability.
  • 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.
  • Octave Key Type: Underslung. An underslung octave mechanism is considered to have a much quicker, more responsive action. It is also a more complex and expensive system to manufacture. So underslung octave keys are to be found on saxophones from the 991 / WO10 series upwards.
  • 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 Reflector
