Bell Arm Keys

Single ArmYanagisawa's single arms used on the bell keys are extremely strong and have proved reliable for many years. Higher-End models can benefit from double arm bell keys.

Bell Brace

Balanced Tri-Point BraceThe bell and body are firmly linked by a three-point, balanced brace which ensures structural resiliance and firm resonance, even when fortissimo is sought.

Bell Key Buffer

Metal AdjustableThe buffers used on the bell keys are metal - and therefore offer increased longevity and accuracy over plastic - and are fully adjustable. This means the aperture of the bell toneholes are within your control.

Bore and Tone Holes

WO Series Bore and Tone HolesIn Yanagisawa's desire to constantly innovate, all new WO series saxophones have a newly engineered bore and toneholes. This helps achieve a smoother blow and even more precise intonation.

C# - Bb Keys

C# - Bb Rocking KeyThe C# and Bb keys have a rocking table / see-saw mechanism that allows for optimal speed and fluidity between these pitches.


WO1 / WO2 Style Hand EngravedYanagisawa WO1 and WO2 series saxophones now feature a uniquely styled, hand engraved pattern.

F Auxiliary Key

F-Auxiliary KeyThis mechanism fitted to the F-Aux key ensures a proper seal of the pads when playing in the low ranges of the saxophone.

Front F Key

WO Series Redesigned front F KeyThe Front F key on WO series saxophones has been redesigned to further improve the ease of fingering.

Key Decoration

White Shell LiningA player's fingers will rest comfortably in the indented white shell keys. The white shell also enhances the beauty of the instrument while also preventing the player's fingers from slipping during technical passages.

Key Work Mounting

Body MountedThe standard design for most regular saxes, the keys are mounted directly to the saxophone body.


Ebonite MouthpiecesEbonite mouthpieces are favoured for their warm tone and ability to fit into an ensemble seamlessly. However, as players discover their own voice, switching to another style of mouthpiece can open up a whole world of new tonal possibilities. Metal mouthpieces are often favoured by Jazz players or soloists who need to stand out from the crowd.

Neck Plate

WO Series Neck PlateFor Overslung necks, this new plate exclusive to the WO1 and WO2 models gives a tighter, more controlled tone.

Octave Key Type

OverslungAn overslung octave mechanism is the standard system employed by most regular saxophones. It is the simplest mechanism for manufacture, and is to be found on 901, 902, W01 and W02 models. This system is also used on solid silver tenor models.

Octave System

Fluororesin Non-Stick MechanismAs standard octave key mechanisms can get sticky over time, Yanagisawa's flouroresin, non-stick coating ensures a reliable action with no stickiness.

Pad Reflector

Metal ReflectorsMetal reflectors are an improvement upon the standard plastic reflectors, and they add clarity to the tone and improve playing response across the whole dynamic range.

Pad Type

Air Tight Waterproof PadYanagisawa's superb waterproof pad is totally air tight which allows complete confidence in the instrument's tonal integrity, plus the waterproof material offers a greatly extended pad life.

Palm Key Plate

WO Series Palm Key PlatePreviously only available on the 99* series saxophones, the WO Series' addition of the palm key plate delivers high range resonance, acoustic depth, added projection and added tonal stability.

Pivot Screws

Pointed Pivot ScrewsSpecial pointed pivot screws are used in all centre arms on Yanagisawa saxophones. These screws precisely maintain the stability of the centre arms, and help achieve a very high precision action.

Right Pinky Key

WO Series Right Pinky Key
The angle of the Right 'Pinky' key on WO series saxophones has been improved to give a smoother fingering feel.

Right Side Key

WO Series Right Side KeyThe Right side key levers on WO series saxophones now has additional feet for a better touch. This affects the Bb, C and E.

Spring Type

Blue Steel SpringsBlue Steel Spring are better than stainless steel - as used on most other saxes - as they hold tension more effectively, and therefore enhance the key action.

"I think that with this instrument Yanagisawa have created a saxophone that is equal to the Selmer MKVI and it will become a much sought after saxophone now and in the future. All you have to do is play one and one is captivated by the sound and playability of the instrument."

Gordon, United Kingdom

"Delighted with the feel and the tone. I have played a Yani soprano for some years and was pleased with how familiar the new tenor felt under the fingers."

Gregory, United Kingdom

"Great instrument.
Out of the box, with store check up, great intonation, specially on low end and high end. The 2nd Octave D seems less projecting that other notes, maybe due to construction. "

Felipe, United Kingdom

"Initial impression is that it has a lovely warm rich tone. It has a nice feel to play with good response."

Hazel, United Kingdom

"Alluring, Superb, and Exquisite."

Mineheart, United States

"Not really tried it yet but seems OK"

Peter, United Kingdom

"I am a Yanagisawa fan anyway. But this sax i can sum up in one word, perfect. Having tried several comparable and more expensive instruments and spent over 4 hours playing and comparing each one, nothing gave even a hint of serious competition. "

Linda, United Kingdom

"I love my new 'Yany' it plays superbly, feels great and looks really stunning!!!"

Ian, Australia

"Wonderful,it's easy to play with excellent tone."
