Yanagisawa A-WO1 Eb Alto Saxophone

We think:
The Yanagisawa A-WO1 Alto Saxophone is part of Yanagisawa’s new WO series set within its professional range. It is also the successor to the hugely popular, market leading A901 Alto Saxophone, which had been around for the previous 20 years.
The A-WO1 is a fantastic free blowing Alto saxophone with a lovely resonant body offering outstanding projection and lively response. This all-round instrument is a perfect upgrade for the advancing student (grade 5+), looking for their first professional specification instrument. The established credibility behind the Yanagisawa name combined with the technical improvements, hand engraving and a more up-to-date outfit will make this a compelling option for many sax players.

Yanagisawa have made some changes to the latest model including improvements to the aesthetics, materials and ergonomics. The new A-WO1 features a new source of Brass for its body which offers an improved sound and sonority. The body and tone holes have also been re-engineered for smoother blowing and better intonation.
A number of improvements which Yanagisawa have introduced relate to the keys. The front F key has been redesigned and the right pinky key has had its angle altered – both changes are to facilitate smoother fingerwork. There is also a palm key plate – previously only available on the higher specification models, which promotes added resonance and depth across the high range.
Yanagisawa have also acknowledged the need for a more up to date case, attractive but also practical, incorporating a robust backpack style design with useful external pocket.
A great all-rounder, the A-WO1 is a popular choice with Jazz players, due to its bright, punchy sound as well as classical players who appreciate rock solid reliability combined with excellent tuning and lightning quick response.
