The WO Series is the first new line from Yanagisawa in 20 years and continues to put Yanagisawa at the forefront of ergonomics and saxophone design.

Yanagisawa Professional models are free blowing, with a resonant tone, and deliver a superb performance across all musical genres. The student will develop their own unique style more easily due to both the advanced construction and ergonomic key design, and the advanced professional can be assured of both superior tone and a class-leading playing experience.

From aspiring beginners to experienced professionals, the Yanagisawa basic professional model has gained popularity with its strong tonal core.

Features:
  • 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 linkage -
    The seesaw linkage between the C# and Bb table keys facilitates faster, smoother fingering technique.
  • Adjustable vibration-dampening 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.
  • Metal thumb hook & 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 centre arms or hinge rods are an exact fit.
  • Airtight 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 a better command of difficult passages.
  • Tri-point balanced bell brace -
    The tri-point bell-bow brace ensures structural stability and rigidity and enhances resonance even at fortissimo levels.
