Venova™ YVS-140 Casual Wind Instrument (Grand Award)
The Venova is a completely new type of acoustic wind instrument that was developed to allow players to enjoy an authentic saxophone-like feel and rich expressiveness in performance with ease.
The innovative branched-pipe structure and meandering shape allows the instrument to be played with simple fingering resembling that of a recorder, making getting started easy even for players who are new to wind instruments, while still providing a satisfying playing experience for established wind instrument players.
The Venova is also easy to use and maintenance is simple, thanks to an ABS plastic body that is lightweight yet durable and can be cleaned with water. Due to its compact size, the instrument can be taken virtually anywhere, allowing players to enjoy music easily in a variety of settings ranging from the outdoors to casual music sessions. In addition to the YVS-140 tenor model, the full lineup also includes a soprano model and an alto model, for a total of three models to satisfy a variety of player needs.
