Soprano Saxophone Yanagisawa SWO2

Yanagisawa SWO2 - Intermediate

The SWO2 has the same one piece body and keywork as the SWO1 but importantly a bronze body. This means the core materials have a different copper/zinc content. The higher copper content found in bronze saxophones adds a certain subtlety and warmth to the sound, the SWO2 also has its pillars individually mounted directly to the body which allows the base brass to really resonate.

Perhaps more suited for the player who wants a balance of immediate tonal production but some extra warmth not found in the SWO1. The warmth is gained at the expense of a little projection due to reduced zinc content in the core brass.

Specifications

  • lacquer bronze body with hand-engraved bell
  • adjustable front F key
  • gold plated thumb rest & hook
  • supplied in a deluxe wood shell case with high 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.
