Great! I'd love to hear one. Bamboo is one of the most versatile of all woods and I love to work with it - although it has been a while since I had any to mess around with.

That is SOOO cool! Wow!

(I used to play alto and tenor, way back in high school. I miss my sax! *sigh*)

I've seen other "bamboo saxes" - but those were not shaped - they were more like recorders with sax mouthpieces.

Interesting site: don't they look wonderful! Allan, there are wav sound files to download so you can hear each instrument.

Thanks, Shambles.

I'm going to have to check that out. I have a couple of bamboo flutes. I love them, and my parakeets love to sing with them.

Really neat. Glad someone here has actually played one....thanks mcmoo and Shambles.

...........I suppose you could also attach a line to the bell with a hook on it, go down to the creek, and play "Up A Lazy River" while snagging a few old tires and the odd carp.

I spotted it a week or two ago. Someone had asked about tongue drums, and one of the links led me to that same page.

They look really neat. I certainly bet they would sound exquisite.

Friend of mine has one... purchased under the name "Xaphoon" or somesuch. It looks rather like a treebranch hollowed out with holes drilled in the branch, and a reed strapped to one end.

However, it sounds dang close to basic sax sound, and it hits the octaves. He's enamored of it, and it's a heck of a conversation starter... "what the heck are you playing?"

Just reading more about these Xaphoons. Apparently they now have a version which is more affordable in an injection-molded plastic.
