We will temporarily stop accepting orders for gold-plated products on March 11, 2022.
Due to the recent rise in the price of gold, the cost of production has increased dramatically and we are now in a very difficult situation. We have been making efforts to reduce costs and rationalize our operations to maintain production, but unfortunately, we are now in a situation where we are unable to produce plated products.

We apologize for any inconvenience this temporary suspension may cause to our customers, and we would appreciate your understanding.

List of discontinued models 
✧Saxophones Gold plated finish, Pink gold plated finish

✧Optional Necks Gold plated finish, Pink gold plated finish

✧Metal mouthpieces Gold plated finish, Pink gold plated finish

Period of suspension of orders for gold-plated products

The Saxophonist Magazine wrote a fantastic review about our products!

“The Yanagisawa WO10 saxophones are amazing. I found all of the models to perform with character, brilliance, and quality. Particular praise is being reserved for the soprano and alto models. The quality of construction is unlike anything I have seen on the market today, and the ergonomics made my acclimation to the instrument seamless. They produce beautifully rich tones that have flexibility and color. Pitch stability is the best I have experience without forcing the player into a singular sound.”
