Product Information

This is an ex-demo model with minor signs of testing use, otherwise AS NEW. (New Equivalent Price: £673)

The Yamaha YDS-150 was designed to be a Saxophone that would allow anyone to experience the joy of performing, anytime, anywhere. This ground-breaking new wind instrument retains the full expressiveness of the Saxophone and adds convenience and ease due to the design.

Yamaha's patented Integrated Bell Acoustic System is a fusion of traditional Saxophone design and advanced digital technologies that offers the uniquely rich sound of an acoustic Saxophone while also allowing you to enjoy playing at a range of easily controllable volumes, and with a set of headphones to play in total silence around you.

The YDS-150 digital Saxophone comes with a traditional looking mouthpiece and synthetic reed, however it plays with much more immediate ease and simply requires blowing into to produce a beautiful Saxophone sound. The volume and tone can be adjusted by changing the intensity of your blowing. 

The Sounds

The instrument uses sampled sounds of Yamaha's soprano, alto, tenor and baritone saxophones. There are 56 meticulously recorded saxophone voices including variations, plus there are an additional set of synthesised sounds to make a total of 73 instrument sounds overall.

The Layout

The Yamaha YDS-150 uses the same key layout, mouthpiece and thumb rest as an acoustic Saxophone to help deliver a natural and comfortable playing experience to new or experienced Saxophonists. It also features a real brass bell and is the same length as an acoustic Soprano Saxophone in order to offer exceptional balance and a lightweight feel. 

The Development Process

The development of this revolutionary product has been years in the making. The goal was to produce a Saxophone that could be played more easily and more accessibly by players of any age and experience. The new YDS-150 digital Saxophone offers this to new players, and for the experienced player it can be an excellent addition to your kit for silent practice, electronic/synthesised music uses and much more.

Sampled sounds not good enough, very electronic if that is your thing but as a saxophone sound awful.
