Digital Saxophone

萨克斯风因查理·帕克 (Charlie Parker) 和斯坦·盖兹 (Stan Getz) 等爵士音乐家而闻名于世,是最多样化的乐器之一。 YDS-150 数字萨克斯风的设计以我们熟悉的原声高音萨克斯风的形状和演奏风格为蓝本。 它展示了相同的长度,也忠实复刻了按键布局。 音乐家们会因此感到熟悉,可以立即开始演奏。 数字萨克斯具有典型的萨克斯常见的黄铜钟罩喇叭口,从吹嘴一直延伸到钟罩形的喇叭口,其优雅的圆弧造型启发灵感。 它的重量只有传统萨克斯的三分之二,拿在手里感觉平衡舒适。 这款萨克斯管的核心是一个复杂的数字概念。 YDS-150 可以完美控制超过 15 个级别的音量控制,供日常练习使用。 扬声器单元和黄铜喇叭通过具有集成式增强声效系统的音管连接。 这根管子可以感应到演奏者的呼气,气体穿过乐器本身,使其做出相应的振动。 从而造就出自然的乐器整体共鸣,感觉就像演奏原声管乐器一样。 它实现了各种音调,如女高音、中音、男高音和男中音,以及合成器音色,让演奏者可以演奏更广泛的曲目。

Made famous by jazz musicians like Charlie Parker and Stan Getz, the saxophone is one of the most multifaceted musical instruments. The design of the YDS-150 digital saxophone is modelled closely on the familiar shape and playing style of an acoustic soprano saxophone. It showcases the same length and also utilises the same key layout. Musicians can therefore start playing it immediately without having to get used to it first. The digital saxophone features a brass bell typical of familiar saxophones and inspires with an elegantly rounded shape that leads from the mouthpiece to the flared bell. With only two-thirds of the weight of a conventional saxophone, it rests well-balanced in the hands. At the very heart of this saxophone is a sophisticated digital concept. The YDS-150 enables perfect control of the volume ratios over 15 levels for daily practice. The loudspeaker unit and the brass bell are linked by an acoustic tube that features the Integrated Bell Acoustic System. This tube senses the player’s breath passing through the body and makes the instrument vibrate in response. The result is a natural instrument body resonance that feels just like playing an acoustic saxophone. Featuring saxophone voices such as the soprano, alto, tenor and baritone, as well as synthesiser voices, it allows players to perform a broad repertoire.
