Yanagisawa TWO1 Tenor Saxophone – Brass


Beautifully made tenor saxophone in a complete outfit suitable for advanced players and young professionals.

Yanagisawa have consistently produced some of the finest saxophones in the world that are used by world-famous artists as well as keen students and saxophonists. As a family company, Yanagisawa began production in late 1800s, yet have still remained family-owned and have made a name for themselves by producing beautiful, world-renowned saxophones that reflect their high standards, provide well-bodied sound, exceptional playability and personal touch. 2015 sees an addition of their popular Tenor Saxophone range and here at Normans we are really excited to stock the brand new TWO1 model. This is an upgrade from the T901 and features a range of amazing new features. You can read about these further on, however, if you need any advice, just give our sales team a call on 01283 535333 option 1 or drop us an email on sales@normans.co.uk – we would love to hear from you!

Redesigned keywork for an ever better playability

Yanagisawa saxes have always offered superb playing experience, however, the new WO Series features improved key work for an even lighter, easier and more responsive performance. The front F key has been redesigned and the pinky key has been angled differently for smoother fingering at all times. Under the right side key lever you will find an additional stopper has been fitted for a more pleasant feel. This also relieves any unnecessary pressure on the key. Additionally, the thumb hook has been moved, the right hand finger position has been enhanced and the right side keys have been lowered too for more comfortable playing. Technical improvements like these truly go a long way in creating a better, more efficient and improved fingering and playability than ever before.

Enhanced materials and better technology used in the production of WO series

All the efforts and expertise have been invested in the brand new Yanagisawa Tenor saxophones to ensure a tone and sound projection that is better than ever before. And, without a doubt, these saxophones produce an expressive, full-bodied, sonorous sound through all registers. It is achieved by making a couple of tweaks, first of all in the bore and tone hole. These have been readjusted for a flowing, smooth tone that is even through the entire range. On the tenor saxophone’s body you will find a new palm key plate that will deepen and stabilize the sound, previously only available on the 99 series. There is also a new plate on the neck that will tighten the sound, ensuring your tone is well focused and pure for excellent dynamics. These brand new features will give you a noticeably better intonation and expressivity no matter which musical genre you are playing.

Improved case and body design

Yanagisawa have always produced not only great quality but also gorgeously designed instruments and the TWO1 is no exception. In the WO series, you will notice newly designed engraving that makes the saxophones stand out among others. There is even a stylish case that has an added outer compartment for accessories and includes backpack-style straps for easy of transportation. The saxophone comes supplied with a mouthpiece and some cleaning accessories.
