Yanagisawa A-WO1 Alto Saxophone

Yanagisawa A-WO1 Alto Saxophone 

It has been almost 20 years since the 900 series alto was first launched in 1995. Since then Yanagisawa also brought out the 902 & the 992 series which were made of bronze, and the 9937 which was made of silver and also the pink gold-plated model in order to achieve a variety of sound. Despite these changes, the original design and engineering has been a proven success and as such, it is a design that Yanagisawa have been reluctant to alter. 

However, sometimes it is necessary to take a fresh look at an old design. The music and musicians of today are much more flexible than before and the Saxophone in now appreciated in a much broader field, everywhere from Classical to Jazz and Pop. 

And so, Yanagisawa feel that it is now time for a new model to lead these new and exciting time. 

The 900 series has been targeted at beginners and at intermediate players while the W01 series is so advanced that even professional players will enjoy the feeling of the new light blow sound. It is easier to control without losing the Yanagisawa trademark quality of sound.
