Yamaha designed the Venova, an entirely new breed of instrument, to empower you to create music. From its simple fingering to its saxophone-like tone, playing the Venova is a truly satisfying, expressive experience, whether you're a beginner or an accomplished musician. From belting out a powerful song to finessing the details of a more delicate melody, the Venova is great for any kind of music.
The Yamaha Venova is a totally new type of wind instrument that blends the simplicity of a recorder with the sound of a saxophone. The original YVS-100 Venova uses a regular soprano saxophone mouthpiece and reed, but with simple open-hole fingerings similar to what you'd find on a student recorder. Durable and lightweight, the Venova is easy to take with you to the beach, the park, on vacation, or wherever you want to make music.
