Make saxophone playing even more accessible with the Yamaha YDS-120 Digital Saxophone.


The YDS-120 combines acoustic and digital technologies into a new form, giving you the ability to control your volume at will, so you can play anywhere you want.

Just lift it to your lips and blow to unlock a total of 56 voices* for the soprano, alto, tenor and baritone saxophone. Enjoy the variety of expression the saxophone cam deliver from the very first note.

*You can also play with the voices of other instruments, giving you a total of 73 instruments to work with.

With the same key configuration as acoustic saxophones, the YDS-120 combines a breath sensor for expression, an analogue controller and your own breath, offering you true freedom of expression.


  • 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 mouthpiece can also be removed for easy maintenance.
  • Breath SensorThe 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 PresetsIncludes 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 LayoutThe key layout is based on Yamaha’s acoustic saxophones, providing seamless usability. You can also change fingering using a dedicated app.
  • Full-Scale Sampling - Yamaha has 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.
