Handmade in Japan – AWO10 Replaced A991

Yanagisawa makes the highest quality professional saxophones on the market today! They are a specialty manufacture of professional handmade saxophones.

When you combine all the facets of the horn (quality, performance & price), the Yanagisawa AWO10 is arguably the most impressive overall professional alto sax being made today!

The Yanagisawa WO Series
Released in 2014 on the altos, the new WO Series saxophones represent the first major redesign of the Yanagisawa alto sax in over 20 years! Building on the outstanding platform of the A9 series, the new WO Series improve on the excellence of Yanagisawa! Impeccable intonation & build quality are a staple of the Yanagisawa line. The WO series bore has been further refined for a richer tone with several enhancements to the mechanical purity that is Yanagisawa!

The Elite Series replaces the A99x series. The Yanagisawa AWO10 features ribbed body construction for a richer, more complex tone. The new WO Series bore will redefine what players expect from a professional alto saxophone. With the Yanagisawa AWO10, no longer will players feel they have to sacrifice tone in favor of response & intonation. 

The Yanagisawa AWO10 features all of the standard Yanagisawa A99x series mechanical improvements such as:

  • Connected C#-B roller
  • Underslung octave mechanism
  • Double arm construction on the Low C & B keys

The Yanagisawa AWO10 further builds on A99x platform with a new front F key design, new right hand side keys and a redesigned right hand pinky cluster. A new case and engraving pattern have also been added.
