  • G Key: Adopted the German silver rod on the key to increase strength
  • Tone Holes: Redesigned tone holes to give an enhanced intonation .

The Yanagisawa SCWO10 Curved Soprano Saxophone:
  • Bb Soprano Saxophone
  • Range from low Bb to high F#

The SCWO10 includes a ‘fully ribbed’ construction which means that there are strips of brass soldered on to the body of the sax, on to which the various pillars are then soft soldered themselves. This gives added ‘body’ to the tone, while offering even further solidarity of design. Secondly, the Elite series offers double arms on the lowest and most vulnerable keys, again adding stability to the set-up.
All Yanagisawa saxophones come complete with a durable back-pack case with front pocket case and include the professional Yanagisawa hard rubber mouthpiece.
