Description

Yanagisawa saxes are made by a small family company in Japan that only makes professional quality saxes, and they do it very well. This degree of focus means they are of a quality that even their main competitors recognise as the best. Here at Sax.co our technicians love them as they play straight out of the box and they are by far the most reliable instruments we sell.

The Yanagisawa A992 developed a reputation over the past 30 years as one of the finest alto saxophones on the market. Its replacement, the AWO20 is even better! Over and above the less expensive AWO2 model, the AWO20 has double key arms, a fully ribbed construction, and an underslung octave mechanism. The bronze offers a richer, broader, more harmonically complex tone. 

The AWO20 has an even stronger tonal core thanks to a re-engineered bore and tone holes, plus many upgraded features.

Review

Yanagisawa has managed to raise the quality of their instruments another notch, with the introduction of the WO series.

The sound delivery of any Yani horn has always been one of richness and smoothness while remaining free-blowing throughout. This quality remains in place on the WO horns but there is an extra degree of warmth and just a little extra focus over and above the old brass models. I’m sure this must be largely due to the change of brass on the AW01 and AW010 models. 

As for the bronze models, there is less of a discernable difference tonally but ergonomically all of the range has benefited from tweaks within the mechanism and key-work. These are lovely new horns. Jim (Sax.co.uk)
