Outline

A new wind instrument that lets beginners enjoy saxophone-like playing feel and performance. While the saxophone is built of many complex parts, the Venova's branched pipe structure and meandering shape produce a saxophone-like tone from a compact portable form with few keys. Made of light, tough, washable ABS resin, with simple maintainability and recorder-style fingering that inexperienced players can adapt to easily, the Venova offers a feel and tone that satisfies advanced players, and is intended to be a handy instrument that brings casual enjoyment to many music lovers.
