Yamaha YDS-120 digital Saxophone
Tamp down your volume while retaining the tonal colors of a saxophone. Fifteen volume levels and a headphone jack allow you to enjoy playing, without worrying about being too loud.
A breath sensor detects air blown into the mouthpiece, while a digital sound generator drives a speaker to produce sounds transmitted through a simple horn-type acoustic mechanism.
Simply blowing into the specially-designed mouthpiece allows you to produce sound without having to worry about your embouchure (the way you shape your mouth). The mouthpiece can also be removed for easy maintenance.
The breath sensor detects the strength (pressure) of your breath, allowing you to control not only the strength, but also the tone of your sound as you play.
SAXOPHONE TONE IN 4 TYPES, 56 PRESETS
Includes 56 different voices for the soprano, alto, tenor, and baritone saxophones, to handle a variety of genres and styles. You can also play with the voices of other instruments, like the shakuhachi, flute, electronic instruments, and more, giving you a total of 73 voices to work with.
*The voice list is also available on the owner’s manual.
The key layout is based on Yamaha’s acoustic saxophones, providing seamless usability. You can also change fingering using a dedicated app.
We teamed up with professional performers to sample the sounds of Yamaha acoustic saxophones—soprano, alto, tenor and baritone—meticulously recorded in whole tones, so that you can enjoy a natural sound without any hint of incongruity.
EXTERNAL CONNECTION TERMINALS
The YDS-120 comes equipped with an auxiliary input terminal for connecting devices such as smartphones, allowing you to connect to an external audio source* to feel like you’re playing in an ensemble.
*Sound must be output from the headphone jack.
