The new SW02 takes over from the ever popular S902 model. It is a one piece, straight body Soprano Sax for the advancing player. The body is made of Bronze (a mix of copper and tin) rather than the SW01's brass construction (copper and zinc). The difference in core material affects the tone and the bronze models tend to have a softer, warmer, broader tone that the more direct and punchy sound of a brass SW01 model. This is the un-lacquered model which has a textured and complex tone.
For many years the Yanagisawa Soprano Sax range has been highly praised and admired for its ease of play and excellent tuning, now with some specific modifications Yanagisawa cement their position as arguably the premium Soprano Sax manufacturer.
The main new features include:
New Bore Shape
The tone hole positioning and size has been modified alongside a newly designed internal bore shape. These modifications have been developed to make the instrument even smoother playing with precise intonation.
There have been various small key modifications including re-designs to the Front F Key, LH Palm Keys, RH Side Keys and LH pinky keys. All of these changes are aimed at making the instrument extremely comfortable to hold and perform at high speeds.
