Yamaha's revolutionary Venova was named best instrument in the Brass and Woodwind category at the prestigious Music Industry Association Gala awards in London recently.
For the Yamaha brand the awards were characterised by new thinking and innovation as the YSV104 Silent Violin was also highly recommended. The MIA awards are the UK's leading platform in gauging the true popularity and commercial success of new instruments as the voting includes over 1,000 retailers.
Launched earlier this year to critical acclaim the uniquely designed Venova was conceived by Keizo Tatsumi of Yamaha's design laboratory, the name derives from Ventus, Latin for wind, and Nova, Latin for New.
The instrument features a unique branched -pipe body of Advanced ABS resin that is smaller, lighter and more durable than conventional wind instruments.
A single reed instrument, as are the Saxophone and Clarinet the Venova is capable of producing beautiful music of power and sensitivity throughout the entire tonal and dynamic range.
