Introducing the New YVS-120 Alto Venova
Building on the runaway success of the original Venova Casual Wind Instrument, Yamaha is expanding the line with the addition of the new YVS-120 Alto Venova. This new model is physically larger and uses an alto saxophone mouthpiece and reed to produce a lower and more mellow sound, with the same state-of-the-art technology that made the original Venova so unique.

Like its smaller cousin, the Alto Venova is lightweight and portable, and comes with a hard-shell carrying case. The two-piece ABS plastic body comes apart in the middle for easy cleaning, and the synthetic pads make it water-washable. While beginners may find the alto sax mouthpiece easier to control, more experienced musicians will appreciate the improved intonation and warmer tone that this new model provides.

  • Unique branched pipe design: The Venova sounds the way it does because of the unique "branched pipe" tube that's added to the body. This extra piece changes the tone from a cylindrical instrument (like a recorder) into the sound of a more conical instrument like a saxophone.
  • Meandering pipe: The body of the Venova is bent into a "meandering pipe" structure. This shortens the distance between the tone holes and makes it possible to play all the notes with very few keys. The result is a simpler fingering system that's similar to a recorder and easier to learn even for people who've never played a wind instrument before.
  • Durable, easy-to-care-for materials: The ABS resin body is durable and can be washed with water. In addition, the included mouthpiece, synthetic resin reed, and synthetic pads are also water-safe, so cleaning the Venova is easy.
  • Two-piece body: The upper and lower sections of the body can be separated for easy cleaning.
