Hardwood bamboo Saxaflute in G from Mr Saxaflute on Vimeo.
Need help in choosing the right Saxaflute for you or a friend. Follow these simple tips which have proved very successful for many customers. Firstly forget about the key of real saxophones. That will just confuse you. They are Eb for Alto and Bb for Tenor sax. We all know that so just forget it for the moment. In the world of Saxaflute ones tuned to A have the same sounding as an ALTO sax. Ones tuned in G sound deeper. Like a Tenor sax. So that is all you need to remember. A = ALTO , G = TENOR.
So what sounds of the sax do you like? Charlie Parker or Lester Young. Bebop fast jazz or Billie Holiday and sax players (Lester Young) Romance or fast. Saxaflutes tuned to A for Charlie Parker or Baker Street. Saxaflutes tuned in G for the kind of sax that sounds sexy. Late night smokey bar.
A third option. For folk, celtic and traditional music the Saxaflutes tuned to D are the most popular choice. These are only availble in the Hard wood bamboo and exotic hard woods due to the nature of the design.
What a few videos and then if you really don't know buy the G Saxaflute. I sell more than 75% in G and the rest mostly in A.
