Yamaha Venova YVS-100 · Soprano Saxophone
Body and mechanics are made of durable ABS plastic, which makes them particularly durable. With a weight of only 180 grams it is playable for every age group. The mouthpiece is that of a soprano saxophone and so the Venova can also be used for younger beginners as preparation for a later switch to the saxophone.
The fingering is the same as for the recorder and the supplied YVS-100 can be played with German or Baroque fingering.
An ABS case is included. A synthetic reed, a carrying strap and cleaning accessories are included as well.
A detailed brochure with all the information helps you to a good start.

A nice instrument. A little larger than expected and doesn't fit as comfortably under the fingers as a record of the equivalent range. Softer reeds would be better for the beginner/casual player.
