White Shell Lining A player's fingers will rest comfortably in the indented white shell keys. The white shell also enhances the beauty of the instrument while also preventing the player's fingers from slipping during technical passages. Body Mounted The standard design for most regular saxes, the keys are mounted directly to the saxophone body. Ebonite Mouthpieces Ebonite mouthpieces are favoured for their warm tone and ability to fit into an ensemble seamlessly.
However, as players discover their own voice, switching to another style of mouthpiece can open up a whole world of new tonal possibilities. Metal mouthpieces are often favoured by Jazz players or soloists who need to stand out from the crowd. WO Series Neck Plate For Overslung necks, this new plate exclusive to the WO1 and WO2 models gives a tighter, more controlled tone. Overslung An overslung octave mechanism is the standard system employed by most regular saxophones. It is the simplest mechanism for manufacture, and is to be found on 901, 902, W01 and W02 models.This system is also used on solid silver tenor models. Fluororesin Non-Stick Mechanism As standard octave key mechanisms can get sticky over time, Yanagisawa's flouroresin, non-stick coating ensures a reliable action with no stickiness. Metal Reflectors Metal reflectors are an improvement upon the standard plastic reflectors, and they add clarity to the tone and improve playing response across the whole dynamic range. Air Tight Waterproof Pad Yanagisawa's superb waterproof pad is totally air tight which allows complete confidence in the instrument's tonal integrity, plus the waterproof material offers a greatly extended pad life. WO Series Palm Key Plate Previously only available on the 99 series saxophones, the WO Series' addition of the palm key plate delivers high range resonance, acoustic depth, added projection and added tonal stability. Pointed Pivot Screws Special pointed pivot screws are used in all centre arms on Yanagisawa saxophones. These screws precisely maintain the stability of the centre arms, and help achieve a very high precision action. WO Series Right Pinky Key The angle of the Right'Pinky' key on WO series saxophones has been improved to give a smoother fingering feel.
WO Series Right Side Key The Right side key levers on WO series saxophones now has additional feet for a better touch. This affects the Bb, C and E.
