The Venova is a completely new type of acoustic wind instrument with an innovative branched-pipe structure and meandering shape that was developed to allow players to enjoy an authentic sound and rich expressiveness with ease. Getting started with Yamaha's Venova is easy even for players with no previous wind instrument experience, and the instrument can be played with simple fingering resembling that of a recorder. At the same time, the Venova also satisfies more experienced wind instrument players by providing a full two-octave range and the expressiveness of a single-reed instrument, such as a saxophone. The ABS plastic body of the instrument is light in weight, excels in durability, and can be cleaned with water. Due to its compact size, the Venova can be taken virtually anywhere, allowing players to enjoy music easily in a variety of settings, ranging from the outdoors to casual music sessions.
