Get a Strong Tonal Core Thanks To a Re-Engineered Bore and Toneholes, Plus Many Upgraded Features - The Yanagisawa TWO20 Elite Bb Tenor Saxophone

Since their founding in 1896 Yanagisawa has held true to a singular passion: handcrafting the world's finest saxophones unrivalled in both tone and ease of play. Yanagisawa's superb ergonomic key-work is second to none and has earned the loyalty and respect of professionals the world over.

Whether you are looking for a high quality student saxophone or a top-level professional instrument, Yanagisawa's handcrafted, Japanese-made saxophones will deliver the finest playing experience.

The very latest addition to the Yanagisawa range is the new WO series of Alto Saxophones. Both the WO Professional and WO Elite models illustrate the desire to continually improve what is already a world-leading design. With a number of newly refined key types designed for enhanced playing comfort; a unique palm key plate for broad register resonance; and a special neck plate for focussing the tone, Yanagisawa WO series Alto Saxophones are once again redefining true instrumental brilliance.

Yanagisawa saxophones are the choice of numerous top-level artists across the world including: Antonio Hart, Marshall McDonald, Tommy Smith, Snake Davis, The Lovely Laura and Jess Gillam.

The upgraded replacement for the highly regarded 992 series, this TWO20 bronze model is an instrument for the accomplished player. It delivers a superb tonal range with an unmistakably darker edge thanks to the fine bronze body, and it also benefits from the WO series re-engineered bore and toneholes, and re-sourced and redesigned core brass material. This model also has many upgraded features exclusive to the WO series such as newly designed Front F Keys, Ride Side Keys and Right Pinky Key.

Bell Arm Keys

Double Arm

Using double arms on the Bell Keys, helps to keep the tone holes fully sealed by removing the chances of twisting or distortion of the tone hole cup. This in turn helps ensure reliable performance and tonal integrity.

Bell Brace

Balanced Tri-Point Brace

The 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 Adjustable

The 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 Holes

In 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 Key

The 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 Engraved

Yanagisawa WO1 and WO2 series saxophones now feature a uniquely styled, hand engraved pattern.

F Auxiliary Key

F-Auxiliary Key

This 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 Key

The Front F key on WO series saxophones has been redesigned to further improve the ease of fingering.

Key Decoration

White Shell Lining

A 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 Mounted

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


Ebonite Mouthpieces

Ebonite 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.
