Based on the well-known B902, the BWO2 is the new reference point for professional baritone saxophones. Ideal for professionals and excelling students alike, Yanagisawa designed the BWO2 to be as versatile as possible.

Yanagisawa has developed the saxophone’s materials in order to improve the sound of the instrument. The BWO2 saxophone features a stunning bronze body that gives a darker edge to the playing, making it a great instrument for mellower sounding music. As well as that, the colour difference between the bronze body and brass mechanisms give a lovely aesthetic touch.

Yanagisawa saxophones feature special pointed pivot screws in the centre of all of the arms. These screws accurately control the stability of the centre arms and help to achieve a high precision action. The bell and body of the saxophone are linked together by a three-point, balanced brace that enables structural security and firm resonance, despite fortissimo being sought.

Description

Fluororesin-sleeved octave rocker
Lost motion is eliminated and smooth octave-key action is ensured by rounding the octave rocker ends and Fluororesin-coating the receiving sleeves they contact.

C#-Bb table key linkages
The seesaw linkage between the C# and Bb table keys facilitates faster, smoother fingering technique.

C#-B table key linkages
The additional slider mechanism between the C# and B table keys is a proprietary Yanagisawa design that allows smoother finger transitions between these notes.

Genuine mother-of-pearl touches
Indented mother-of-pearl key touches are attractive, afford the fingertips a more natural fit and feel, and are less slippery than plastic touches when wet.

Metal thumb hook & rest
Designed to make minimal point contact with the body, the thumb hook enables the instrument to resonate more freely while the brass thumb rest allows for smoother response and improved tonal balance.

Pointed pivot screws
For the utmost in precision and reliability, pointed pivot screws ensure that centre arms or hinge rods are an exact fit.

Sealed, waterproof pads
Airtight pads facilitate balanced, leak-free play while quality waterproofing extends pad service life.

Metal tone boosters
Pads equipped with metal tone boosters enhance tonal clarity and ensure excellent response at any volume, from pianissimo to fortissimo.

Needle springs
Blued-steel needle springs are more elastic than the stainless-steel variety, offer faster action and render a better command of difficult passages.

Tri-point brace
The tri-point bell-bow brace ensures structural stability and rigidity and enhances resonance even at fortissimo levels.

Adjustable vibration-damping bar
This enhancement dampens sympathetic vibrations in the right-hand F# key, thus stabilizing the production of notes in the lower register.
