Soprano Saxophone Yanagisawa SWO20

Yanagisawa SWO20 - Professional

All of Yanagisawas evolutionary advancements are present with the innovative use of bronze. The result is an unmistakable warmth and richness of response, and wide dynamic range for which Yanagisawa is known. An exceptional choice for any soloist, classical players will find this model to be of particularly great interest.

Benefitting from the upgraded systems of all the SWO00 series the SWO020 has a two piece bronze body and crooks. 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 SWO10, if you want a little more warmth and subtlety go for a SWO20

Yanagisawa
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.
