The curved soprano commands a presence without parallels in the saxophone universe. Embracing a complete re-design with new body materials and tonehole geometries, our new WO Series models have transformed the curved soprano into an instrument with more power, sensitivity, and the ability to shine in an array of musical genres.
Ongoing refinements in finger positioning have created a mechanism with improved action. These sopranos deliver a resonant and full- bodied tonal palette with just the right touch of resistance.
- Key: Bb
- Range: Low Bb to High F#
- Neck: Bronze brass
- Body: Bronze brass
- Bow: Bronze brass
- Bell: Bronze brass, hand-engraved
New WO Curved Soprano Series
Evolution of the toneholes – Tonehole sizes and locations have been adjusted through repeated experimentation to achieve the ideals in scaling and timbre.
Evolution of the sliding lever – A redesigned G# key sliding lever allows better venting and opens up the possibilities for timbre and scaling.
Evolution of the front-F key – The arm of the front-F key has been redesigned for smoother action and easier control.
Evolution of the palm keys – The left-hand palm keys have been re-oriented toward the bell for improved ergonomics and control.
Evolution of the G key hinge rod – The G key hinge rod on the upper stack is now made from nickel-silver, a harder alloy that adds strength and durability while helping to keep the mechanism in good adjustment.
Evolution of the strap ring – The neck-strap ring has been relocated to allow more comfortable, ergonomic positioning during play.
