While other instrument manufacturers expanded into mass production, the fully ribbed A-WO20 Elite Professional alto saxophone continues to be precision crafted by hand in Japan to standards that have established Yanagisawa as the world's premier manufacturer of specialty professional and elite saxophones.

Building on the new generation A-WO2, the A-WO20 adds ribbing under all keys, dual arms on the large valves, Yanagisawa's proprietary bi-directional C#-B table linkage for effortless transitions, enhanced engraving, and upgraded neck with an underslung octave key.

Geometrically identical to its A-WO10 twin, the body of the A-WO20 is made out of solid bronze, giving it a warmer tone compared to its non-ribbed and brass counterparts.
