Yanagisawa SC-W037 Curved Soprano Saxophone (Silver)


The SCWO37 curved soprano saxophone has many premium design features. This particular model features a stunning solid silver body which provides a wonderful tone that balances the purity of silver. Around the soprano saxophone, there are indented mother-of-pearl keys for comfortable playing. Not only do they enhance the beauty of the instrument, but they also prevent the musician’s fingers from slipping during virtuosic passages.

The increased neck angle at the top of the SCWO37 curved soprano allows for more aggressive playing while also supporting a rich tone. The SCWO37 features indented mother-of-pearl keys to prevent the player’s fingers slipping during performances. The underslung octave mechanism featured on the SCWO37 is considered to have a quicker and more responsive action. To help prevent the octave key mechanism from getting sticky, Yanagisawa coat the system in flouroresin which is a non-stick coating.

The solid silver body of the SCWO37 is finished in a bright clear lacquer, which when combined with the deluxe hand engraving, revised bore size, and white shell key tops create a magnificent instrument.

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.
