Johnny's bamboo saxophone 'THE SAXAFLUTE', is made from the finest sourced bamboo. Hand picked to ensure the very best quality from the different types of bamboo used for musical instrument making. The same can be said for the exotic hard woods also used.
The Saxaflute is Perfect for beginners, experimental musicians, acoustic bands and travelling saxophone players. Constructed from the principle body of a flute with an Alto sax mouthpiece which has been carefully designed by myself to resonate better with the bamboo and hardwood, producing the amazing sound of a real saxophone. Easy to learn and fun to play. Each saxaflute is individually hand crafted and then tuned to a major scale.
Carefully selected bamboo and wood from quality suppliers. After years or sourcing the best materials I find it is ever more important to visit the supplier myself to ensure the finest quality is used for my instruments. There are four choices of Saxaflutes. Natural Bamboo, black bamboo which is darker in appearance and tone, Hardwood bamboo, (bamboo as tough as wood,) which has a thick, solid feel and creates the best bamboo sound quality and hard wood Saxaflutes made from a selection of exotic hardwoods.
The hard wood Saxaflutes are limited editions and one of a kind. Stock changes daily so best to take a look at the selection on line in the shop.. Available in Bb, A, G, F, E and D. Similar to a tin whistle and recorder fingering. The most popular options are A for Alto saxophone sound and G for Tenor Saxophone. Each Saxaflute is chromatically tuned so that it can be played with other instruments.
