Alto Saxophone Yanagisawa AWO30
The New Yanagisawa AW030 model replaces the A9030. As part of the Yanagisawa Solid Silver range the AW030 has a Solid Silver neck and body, with a standard brass bell.
The new AW range from Yanagisawa benefits from the following upgrades:
- the right hand 'pinky' keys (low Eb + low C) have been modified in shape and feel to faciliate faster finger movement at the bottom of the instrument.
- the body tube bore size and tone hole sizes and positions have all been modified to improve the overall resonance, intonation and response.
- the front F key has been ergonomically re-designed to sit more easily under the players finger when operated.
- additional 'feet' have been added under the right hand side keys (Bb, C and high E) - this is to basically give the mechanism more support and a more positive 'feel' for the player when depressing the key.
Finishing off the outfit is a new case and new engraving which of course is all wholly aesthetic but a nice touch nonetheless.
All in all these Yanagisawa Solid Silver saxes represent the pinnacle of modern Sax production with a truly unique tone.
