One of the World's most exclusive saxophones
Solid silver bell, bow, neck, and body. Solid silver produces a clarity of sound unequaled by any other metal.
This solid silver Yanagisawa features extensive hand engraving by the master engraver at Yanagisawa who has worked at the factory for over 20 years. Engraving can take as long as 10 hours to complete and he uses 15 different types of graver to complete his designs! True artistry!
Yanagisawa saxes are made by a small family company in Japan that only makes professional quality saxes, and they do it very well. This degree of focus means they are of a quality that even their main competitors recognize 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 AWO37 is truly the ultimate alto in the Yanagisawa range. It features a solid silver body, bell, bow, and neck with beautiful hand engraving. It also benefits from the WO series re-engineered bore and tone holes.
Solid silver produces a clarity of sound unequaled by any other metal. Many years of research by skilled craftsmen have resulted in the creation of the ultimate choice of sounds available to musicians today. Coupled with the finest mechanism which only Yanagisawa’s skilled craftsmen can produce, the blend gives the musician his ultimate choice. Fully lacquered to minimize cleaning.
This latest AWO37 has an even stronger tonal core thanks to a re-engineered bore and tone holes, plus many upgraded features 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
