The bronze AWO20 is capable of evoking an extraordinarily broad palette of tonal colors and shades

Fluororesin-Sleeved Octave Rocker
Lost motion is eliminated and smooth octave-key action is ensured by rounding the octave rocker ends and Fluororesin-coating the receiving sleeves they contact
C#-Bb Table Key Linkages
The seesaw linkage between the C# and Bb table keys facilitates faster, smoother fingering technique
C#-B Table Key Linkages
The additional slider mechanism between the C# and B table keys is a proprietary Yanagisawa design that allows smoother finger transitions between these notes
Adjustable Vibration-Damping Bar
The enhancement dampens sympathetic vibrations in the right-hand F# key, thus stabilizing the production of notes in the lower register
Genuine Mother-of-Pearl Touches
Indented mother-of-pearl key touches are attractive, afford the fingertips a more natural fit and feel, and are less slippery than plastic touches when wet
Metal Thumb Hook & Rest
Designed to make minimal point contact with the body, the thumb hook enables the instrument to resonate more freely while the brass thumb rest allows for smoother response and improved tonal balance
Pointed Pivot Screws
For the utmost in precision and reliablity, pointed pivot screws ensure that center arms or hinge rods are an exact fit
Sealed, Waterproof Pads
Airtight pads facilitate balanced, leak-free play while quality waterproofing extends pad service life
Metal Tone Boosters
Pads equipped with metal tone boosters enhance tonal clarity and ensure excellent response at any volume, from pianissimo to fortissimo
Needle Springs
Blued-steel needle springs are more elastic than the stanless-steel variety, offer faster action and render a better command of difficult passages
Double-Arm Keys
Dual arms prevent larger key cups from twisting or flexing under pressure and also improve durability
Tri-Point Brace
The tri-point bell-bow brace ensures structural stability and rigidity and enhances resonance even at fortissimo levels
