The Yanagisawa AWO1 is a modern day classic that meets the demands of many professional players. This Custom Shop model is fitted with premium Roo pads and Maestro resonators, offering a significant extra element of projection over the more traditional sound of plastic resonators. It has also been fitted with a stunning set of blue touchpieces to compliment its blue felts and has benefited from a full Custom Shop Pro set-up. 

PAD UPGRADE

• COMPLETE CUSTOM SHOP SWITCH TO ROO PADS WITH MAESTRO AIR-TIGHT RESONATORS

• RooPads reduce pad noise

• RooPads offer a firm professional feel

• RooPads leather is the most durable

• Maestro resonators offer a 3D surface area for increased projection. We hand select the closest size resonator for each tone hole, maximising the projection level even further. Metal reflectors greatly increase the projection level compared with plastic resonators. Maestro resonators are amongst the most advanced of resonators and will help you to cut through in the most demanding situations. 

HAND MADE PEARLS

• Hand-cut & engineered in our own workshops

• Multiple colour options, including beautiful two-tone swirling effects

• Flat cut for more instant playing response

• Highly polished for maximum visual impact

CUSTOM SHOP SET-UP

• Whilst being stripped for re-padding, Custom Shop saxes benefit from a hand rebuild and meticulous set-up to the highest standard

• Overall action lightened and optimised to create an effortless feeling, particularly when playing technical passages 

ERGONOMIC HEAVY MASS NECK SCREW

• Hand-crafted, ergonomic alternative to the flat sided screw.  Much acoustic testing has been done when it comes to adding mass and metal to this ‘weak nodal area’ on saxophones, and it’s normally found that this increased mass helps to cure these problems, as well as add an overall layer of increased resonance to the sound.

All of our instruments are fully checked and set-up by our experienced technicians. Regardless of size or price - all saxophones go through the same process.
