Yamaha Alto Venova YVS-120 Wind Instrument
The Yamaha Alto Venova is a fun, lightweight and durable wind instrument, ideal for the travelling musician or players who want something fun to play at home or on the go.
A lot of attention has gone into creating this instrument, from the odd looking "branched pipe" (integral to the tone according to Yamaha) through to a system which allows the Venova to operate either using German system recorder fingering or standard Boehm. It has a full two-octave range and maintains its tone well even on the top notes.
The sound of these horns is far more impressive than we’d anticipated - big and cleaner responding than the vast majority of instruments of this sort.
Key work is nice and smooth throughout and, all in all, it’s enormous fun to play.
Complete with a mouthpiece, reed, hard shell case, manual and neck strap
