The Tenor Venova is made from rugged ABS plastic with a unique design that beautifully mimics the tone and playability of a saxophone. With its innovative design, this award-winning instrument delivers an authentic saxophone experience that's fun for beginners and experienced players alike. The YVS-140 sports a larger body and tenor sax mouthpiece, giving it a lower, more mellow sound. The ingenious "branched pipe" tubing design shortens the distance between tone holes, making it possible to play the entire range of notes with fewer keys. This simpler fingering system is akin to a recorder's system, making it incredibly accessible for those who've never played a wind instrument before.
