The upgraded replacement for the A992PG series, this AWO20PG bronze has exotic pink gold plating.
Yanagisawa saxes are made by a small family company in Japan who only make professional quality saxes, and they do it very well. This degree of focus means they are of a quality that even their main competitors recognise as the best. Here at Sax.co our technicians love them as they play straight out of the box and they are by far the most reliable instruments we sell.
The Yanagisawa A992 series developed a reputation over the past 30 years as one of the finest alto saxophones on the market. It's replacement, the AWO20 is even better! This top of the range AW020PG has a bronze body that is fully plated in pink gold - a mix of 80% gold and 20% silver creating a stunning finish. This plating and the lack of lacquer enhances a wonderful tonal clarity which we have found especially popular with classical players.
Most saxes are covered in a thin lacquer to prevent them from tarnishing but this does slightly dampen the resonance of the metal. Unlacquered saxes are very popular as they allow the metal to resonate to it's full potential. They require cleaning to keep them shiny or you can leave them to tarnish and fairly soon they take on a nice vintage patina.
The AWO20PG has an even stronger tonal core thanks to a re-engineered bore and tone holes, plus many upgraded feature such as:
Front F Key
A new redesigned front F key for a better feel.
Right Side Key
Additional feet under the right side key levers (B, C and high E) for a better touch.
Right Pinky Key
New pinky key angle for smoother fingering.
Exquisite new hand engraving.
New Neck Plate
An additional neck plate for tightening the sound.
Palm Key plate
New palm key plate for added high range resonance, acoustic depth and projection across all register, and exceptional tonal stability.
Teflon octave system
Both ends of the octave key axis rotate in a receptacle that is coated with teflon to insure a smooth operation every time
Rocking table mechanism
The C# and Bb keys have a rocking table mechanism that allows for optimal speed and fluidity between these pitches
F-auxiliary key mechanism
Insures a proper seal of the pads when playing in the low range of the saxophone
"Indented" white shell keys
A player's fingers will rest comfortably in the indented white shell keys. The white shells also enhance the beauty of the instrument while also preventing the player's fingers from slipping during technical passages
Pointed pivot screw
The pivot screws that are used have a pointed end which facilitates an accurate center and precise action
Air-tight waterproof pad
The pads are completely air-tight which supports stability in playing and their life is extended thanks to being waterproof
Blue steel springs
Blue steel springs give the player quick response and are more resilient than stainless steel (they also last much longer)
Tri-point balanced bell brace
The bell and the body of the saxophone are securely connected by a tri-point balanced bell brace
