    Get An Instrument For The Accomplished Player That Delivers A Superb Tonal Range With Unrivalled Depth And Flexibility - The Yanagisawa TWO10 Elite B-Flat Brass Tenor Saxophone

    The TWO10 is Yanagisawa's traditional brass tenor saxophone with upgraded components.  It has earned high marks for mechanical reliability and a tight tonal core with great projection. The WO10 series has various upgrades over the WO1 series: The double arm support on the low keys ensures better pad seating and a stronger low end sound. The posts that hold the keys in place are mounted onto strong support straps that run the length of the instrument; this adds weight and support to the body and influences the carrying power of the tone. Also the WO10 series has an underslung neck for less resistance in the response and more reliable mechanics.

    BELL ARM KEYS

    Using double arms on the Bell Keys, helps to keep the tone holes fully sealed by removing the chances of twisting or distortion of the tone hole cup. This in turn helps ensure reliable performance and tonal integrity.

    BRASS / MATERIAL

    The WO series saxophones benefit from a newly designed, newly engineered and specially sourced brass material for improved sound and sonority.

    ENGRAVING

    Yanagisawa WO10 and WO20 series saxophones now feature a uniquely styled, hand engraved pattern.

    KEY WORK MOUNTING

    This is an enhanced design with the keys mounted to a rib plate which in turn is mounted to the body. This not only gives added strength to the keywork, but has the added benefit of improved resonance and tonal stability.

    MOUTHPIECE

    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.

    OCTAVE SYSTEM

    As standard octave key mechanisms can get sticky over time, Yanagisawa's flouroresin, non-stick coating ensures a reliable action with no stickiness.

    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.

    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.
