The Yanagisawa TWO2 Tenor Saxophone is an upgraded replacement for the 902 series, featuring a stunning bronzed lacquered body this instrument is ideal for both beginners and professional players. This model is an elite instrument with mechanically superior design features.
The difference between this saxophone and the 902 series is the newly engineered bore and tone-holes that directly help to achieve a smoother blow and even more precise intonation. Unlike the 902 models the exclusive neck plate offers tighter, more controlled tones. In addition to previous models this sax features a palm key plate that delivers high range resonance, acoustic depth, and added projection and tonal stability. An upgraded metal key buffer offers increased longevity and accuracy. A single arm on the bell key provides a strong and reliable performance for years to come.
Handmade in the Yanagisawa family workshop in Tokyo.
Premium Materials - Yanagisawa has developed the saxophone's materials in order to improve the sound of the instrument. This particular model features a stunning bronzed body which is suited to both beginners and professionals. Also featured on this model is a newly designed, newly engineered and specially sourced brass material for improved sound and sonority. A white shell lining has been added to the keys to make the saxophone more eye catching and to reduce the chance of the player's fingers slipping during a technical passage. The angle of the right pinky key has been developed to give players a smoother fingering experience, as well as additional feet added to the right side key to provide a better feel during play.
Bronze Body - The TWO2 saxophone features a stunning bronze body that offers dark and rich tones to the instrument - perfect for mellow music. The colour difference between the bronze body and brass mechanisms give a lovely aesthetic touch.
Pivot Screws & Bell Brace - 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.
Hand Engraved & Ebonite Mouthpiece - For a luxury finish the Yanagisawa tenor saxophones feature an attractive and uniquely styled hand engraved pattern on the instrument's body. Also included is a Yanagisawa branded ebonite mouthpiece - a favourite among sax players. Popular because they produce lovely warm tones and are able to fit into an ensemble seamlessly.
