Yanagisawa Solid Silver Tenor Saxophone
Yanagisawa makes the highest quality professional saxophones on the market today! They are a specialty manufacture of professional handmade saxophones. They are a small factory blending old world craftsmanship with modern design and performance.
Solid Sterling Silver
Yanagisawa uses Solid Sterling Silver (92.5% pure silver, 7.5% copper) for their “Solid Silver” which provides a heavier alloy that also vibrates & responds exceptionally well. This helps the the horn to be a more resonant instrument that offers more tonal presence and versatility. This effectively amplifies whatever is put in to the horn by the player and mouthpiece. So mouthpieces that are dark by nature will be darker, richer & bigger on a Yanagisawa Solid Silver Tenor. Mouthpieces that are brighter will be edgier, more brilliant and more powerful on a Yanagisawa Solid Silver Tenor. The basic math is simple, the more Solid Silver used in the horn, the bigger the performance enhancement.
The TWO37 model Yanagisawa Solid Silver Tenor saxes use Solid Sterling Silver for all of the body tubing – Neck, Body, Bow & Bell. This is one of the absolutely most impressive playing instruments on the planet.
The TWO37 features all of the standard Yanagisawa Elite series mechanical improvements such as:
- Connected C#-B roller
- Double arm construction on the Low C & B keys
Unlike the other WO Elite Series horns, on tenor sax models with a Sterling Silver neck, Yanagisawa does not use the underslung octave mechanism. Instead, they use a traditional top mount in order to accommodate a structural reinforcement brace on the underside of the neck to help prevent bending the neck (since Sterling Silver is softer than brass).
Every Yanagisawa Solid Silver Tenor we send out to a customer is not released from us unless it has been completely setup in our shop first. This is because the setup on the horn is of the utmost importance! Sometimes, a saxophone (regardless of who the manufacturer) comes in needing 20 minutes of adjustments and then the very next one can require 2 hours! So if you were to get 5 of the same model right out of the box, they will all play different. This leads players to believe that they are “good” or “bad” saxes. The reality is that the one that was the best out of the 5 was likely the one that needed the least amount of work and the “bad” sax was the one that needed 2 hours worth of adjustments!
Once the same 5 saxophones are properly regulated and adjusted to perfection, they become near identical saxophones. Even the pickiest of players would be challenged to pick a true “favorite” horn. However, since most stores do not or even can not perform this setup, the player never knows this and is simply relying on the luck of the draw. This is why we perform our setup (in our www.SaxophoneRepairs.com ProShop) on them before delivering your new sax to you. You trust us with your purchase and we want to make sure that you are rewarded by giving you your ideal saxophone setup flawlessly!
