|The rich sound of the saxophone is captured in all its beauty for you to play, yet the instrument can be as quiet as you want. You can adjust the volume and enjoy playing without worrying about your sound—day or night. If you want to focus completely on your performance, simply connect a set of headphones.|
INTEGRATED BELL ACOUSTIC SYSTEM
|The Yamaha unique Integrated Bell Acoustic System gives you the best of both worlds - high-quality digital sound with the tactile feeling of an acoustic wind instrument. This new, advanced system consists of a speaker unit and enclosure, acoustic pipe, and a real brass bell. The YDS-150 responds to your breath from the mouthpiece, and digitally creates sound that drives the speaker, causing the brass bell to resonate. In fact, the entire instrument resonates with the sound, and that vibration comes back to you. The result is an instrument that breathes, moves and vibrates along with your playing, giving you the realistic feeling of an acoustic saxophone with the comprehensive capabilities of a digital instrument.|
|In order to enable the most natural and comfortable playing experience, the YDS-150 features a mouthpiece designed from an acoustic saxophone. It can also be conveniently removed for easy maintenance.|
|The YDS-150 key layout has been designed based on Yamaha acoustic saxophones for the most natural playability and smoothest feel. In addition, you can use the dedicated app to change the fingering and customize it to your own needs.|
|The high-quality brass bell is made of the same material as used on Yamaha acoustic saxophones. Drawing on our extensive know-how and experience of making acoustic instruments, we designed this bell to reproduce the tactile feeling of an acoustic saxophone. Moreover, the resonance causes the entire instrument to vibrate, and lets you truly feel the music as you play it.|
TRANSFORM YOUR BREATH INTO A WIDE VARIETY OF SOUNDS
The YDS-150 has a breath sensor that detects the intensity of your breath, letting you minutely control not only the volume of the sound but also the tone.
FULL SCALE SAMPLING OF PROFESSIONAL PLAYERS
|The YDS-150 uses sampled sounds of Yamaha acoustic saxophones—soprano, alto, tenor and baritone—meticulously recorded in whole tones with professional players, letting you fully enjoy performing without any unnatural sound.|

Moreover, each of these saxophone types have different saxophone Voices that correspond to various playing techniques and musical genres, from vibrato playing and jazz to classical music.
