Yamaha’s Alto Venova blends the simplicity of a recorder with the rich tone of a saxophone in an ABS resin body that is smaller, lighter and more durable than conventional wind instruments.

Like the original Venova introduced in 2017, the new Alto Venova features a unique branched-pipe structure that gives rich timbre with plenty of volume. Easy, recorder-style fingering makes it ideal for inexperienced musicians experimenting with a reed instrument, as compared to traditional wind instruments. Designed with a larger body, the new model is given a lower sound range with darker, richer tones than the original Venova. When the session ends, the instrument is easily cleaned with water. The Alto Venova comes with a mouthpiece, ligature, synthetic reed, mouthpiece cap, and a durable carrying case with a strap.
