Yamaha YDS150 Digital Saxophone
Play the saxophone anytime, anywhere. Featuring the Integrated Bell Acoustic System, this is a unique digital saxophone that lets you control the volume and still maintain a seamless sense of expressive unity with the instrument.
Blowing into the mouthpiece resonates through the entire instrument - a vibration you can feel in your lips, fingertips, and even your heart. Integrated Bell Acoustic System, created by the fusion of acoustic and digital technologies, delivers an incredibly authentic, gorgeous sound that even feels and responds as if you were playing an acoustic instrument.
Volume control over a range of fifteen levels lets you play freely, without worrying about the place or time. The instrument can be played quietly at night, and with a set of headphones on, you can apply an ambient reverb and thoroughly immerse yourself in your performance.
Transform your breath into a variety of instrument sounds. In addition to the basic saxophone types of soprano, alto, tenor, and baritone and the wide variety of fifty-six related sounds, you can also select from and play nine other wind instruments. Change the settings, sound adjustments, fingering, and other controls of the instrument to your liking using Bluetooth via the dedicated smartphone app - and make your joy of playing even deeper.
This dedicated app enhances the performance of the YDS-150 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.
The audio output is via the 3.5mm mini-jack which can be connected to your headphones or an amplifier. The YDS-150 has Bluetooth for MIDI communication with the smartphone app + Audio input only - there is no Bluetooth audio output. The YDS-150 will not send audio out via Bluetooth, you have to use a jack cable. Your smartphone or other Bluetooth device sends audio to the YDS-150 via Bluetooth, and the YDS-150 sends audio out to your headphones or amplifier via cable, connected to the 3.5mm audio output jack. This allows you to play along with a backtrack which is then combined with the audio from the YDS-150 as you play, and then output via the 3.5mm mini-jack to your headphones or amplifier. Perfect for rehearsing silently via headphones, or performing live at a gig.
