Professional saxophones should emphasize your individuality as a player and bring out the inimitable sound that defines you. The BWO1 does all that and more, serving as your gateway into the world of professional bari saxes. Its post-to-body construction gives you a quicker response with less resistance, resulting in a more free-blowing sax that vibrates without any compromises. The lighter weight also makes this bari more manageable for smaller players and professionals going through longer sessions.

Flawless keywork with a pro setup

Topped with genuine mother-of-pearl key touches, the Yanagisawa BWO1’s flawless keywork feels incredible beneath your fingers. Blue-steel springs give it a fast action that reacts smoothly to all the subtleties of your playing. Premium leather pads also provide an airtight seal to the tone holes, so you can play your new bari without worrying about leaks that squander your sound. Other subtle touches to the pro setup make this sax a dream to play, like the Fluororesin sleeve around the octave bar or the seesaw linkage between the C# and Bb table keys. Even the low C and D# spatula keys have been repositioned to accommodate smaller hands. In the end, the BWO1 is a bari that lets you fly across the horn’s entire range and effortlessly showcase your mastery without any restraint.

Performance-enhancing innovations

You need an instrument that will work without fail, which is why the BWO1 is packed with performance-enhancing innovations that bring out your true musical voice. Baritone saxes are all about the low notes, so Yanagisawa added an adjustable vibration-damping bar that muffles sympathetic vibrations in the right-hand F# key and stabilizes tone production in the lower register. The BWO1 also sports tone holes with revised dimensions and positioning, which give the horn unbelievably accurate intonation. Pointed pivot screws also ensure that the key arms provide a perfect seal over these tone holes, making for a reliable horn that lasts you a lifetime.

Stunning design

The Yanagisawa BWO1 is simply gorgeous to behold. Its rich gold-colored lacquer finish glistens under any lighting, and its delicate hand-engraved bell adds soft touches of beauty and artistry to the horn. And the genuine mother-of-pearl key touches not only look amazing, but they also wick away moisture more effectively than typical polyester key buttons – something you’ll appreciate after a long set under hot stage lights. The BWO1 comes complete with a premium hard case with a beautiful fabric exterior, ample storage space, wheels, and backpack straps for taking your beloved horn on the go.
