Have Fun Making Music With The Yamaha Venova Casual Wind Instrument
Now there's an instrument simple and durable enough to take anywhere. Just blow into it and have fun making this wind instrument sing! More powerful than it looks, the Venova can also handle delicate melodies. The more you play, the more you'll discover its wide expressive range.
With your Venova, the music and smiles never stop!
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.
EASY TO LEARN
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.
