The Alto Venova is a fun new instrument with a larger body and an alto saxophone mouthpiece to produce a lower and more mellow sound. Great for beginners and more experienced players alike.
- Lightweight and portable
- Water washable so it’s easy to clean
- Simple fingering similar to recorders
- Rich, expressive tone that plays and sounds like a saxophone
- Fully chromatic two octave range
- Play your favorite tunes with the smooth voice of the Alto Venova
- Larger than the original YVS-100, the Alto Venova has a lower pitch and is even easier for beginners to start playing
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.
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.
The upper and lower sections of the body can be separated for easy cleaning.
Easy to start
The Venova Owner's Manual and the "Let's Play Venova!" guidebook include tips on posture, sound production, and controlling pitch and tone. The guidebook also contains sample songs to help you get started. Even if you're completely new to wind instruments you can have fun while learning.
