With a heritage of instrument-making in Japan that traces back to 1893, Yanagisawa is recognized today as a maker of the most carefully handcrafted family of artist-level saxophones in the world.
In models ranging from sopranino to baritone, these superb instruments have won the praise of many celebrated musicians.
This SWO3 silver model Soprano Saxophone is suited just as well to aspiring beginners as to experienced professionals. The student will develop their own style more easily due to both the improved construction and ergonomic key design, and the advanced professional can be assured of a superior tone. It has a strong tonal core thanks to a re-engineered bore and tone holes, plus many upgraded features exclusive to the WO series such as
- Right Finger Keys: Modified the angle of the right little finger keys for smoother fingering.
- Left Palm Keys: Adapted the angle of the left palm keys to improve your fingering
- G Key: Adopted the German silver rod on the key to increase strength.
- Tone Holes: Redesigned tone holes to give an enhanced intonation.
The Yanagisawa SWO3 Soprano Saxophone:
- Key of Bb
- Range from low Bb to high F#
- All hand engraved
- Silver Plated Lacquer
The SWO3 includes a ‘fully ribbed’ construction which means that there are strips of brass soldered on to the body of the sax, on to which the various pillars are then soft soldered themselves. This gives added ‘body’ to the tone, while offering even further solidarity of design. Secondly, the Elite series offers double arms on the lowest and most vulnerable keys, again adding stability to the set-up.
All Yanagisawa saxophones come complete with a durable back-pack case with front pocket case and include the professional Yanagisawa hard rubber mouthpiece.
