Baritone Saxophone Yanagisawa BWO20

Yanagisawa BWO20 - Professional

The introduction of bronze allows a before-unheard delicacy and warmth of tone to the baritone without sacrifice of power and projection. This and all the enhanced features found in the BWO10 are present in this bronze version.

Benefitting from the upgraded systems of all the BWO series the BWO20 has double arm low key supports for a stronger low end sound and better pad seating. The pillars are also mounted to long straps that run down the body providing weight and support to the sound and strength to the construction.

A sublime saxophone, the warmth gained by the bronze is because the base copper content is increased. This also results in less zinc which is responsible for projection. So, if you want unrelenting power and projection go for a BWO1, if you want a little more warmth and subtlety go for a BWO2.

Specifications:

Bronze brass lacquered, Low A range, Yanagisawa sway-free mechanism for F auxiliary and low C-sharp keys, which affords better air tightness. Best quality Japanese materials and mechanisms. Supplied with a deluxe woodshell case and quality ebonite mouthpiece.

Yanagisawa saxophones Yanagisawa has become known for their reputation for high quality and hand craftsmanship. The family legacy dates back to 1893 with Tokutaro Yanagisawa repairing woodwind instruments in Japan for military band members. In 1921, Yanagisawa established their first factory making trumpets and cornets. During this time, Tokutaro would mentor young instrument makers including Kouichi Muramatsu, who would eventually build his own flute company. In 1951, Takutaro’s son, Takanobu Yanagisawa followed in his father’s footsteps to build his first prototype saxophone. During the 60’s and 70’s, Yanagisawa developed and built new models of saxophones including the model B-6 bari saxophone and the S-6 soprano saxophone, the first ever of their type to be built in Japan. Since 1969, Yanagisawa has become most well known for their innovations in soprano and sopranino saxophones. The first sopranino SN-6 ever built in 1972 now belongs to Sonny Rollins. In 1985, Yanagisawa released the S-880, the first soprano saxophone with a detachable neck. In 1990, this innovation continued with the S-990, the first saxophone to have a high G key.
