FEATURES


VOLUME CONTROL

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.

ACOUSTIC SYSTEM

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.

MOUTHPIECE

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.

BREATH SENSOR

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.

KEY LAYOUT

The key layout is based on Yamaha’s acoustic saxophones, providing seamless usability. You can also change fingering using a dedicated app.

FULL-SCALE SAMPLING

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.

DEDICATED YDS CONTROLLER APP

This dedicated app enhances the performance of the YDS-120 and further expands the range of sound creation—and includes instrument settings and sound editing. You can make detailed settings intuitively and visually from the app, that cannot be done on the instrument itself.

*To use the app, you will need to connect your smart device to the YDS-120 using a USB cable and Lightning USB adapter for iPhone / iPad or OTG cable for Android
