The Maui Xaphoon (pronounced "za foon"), also known as a Bamboo Saxophone, is an instrument created by Brian Wittman. The Xaphoon is the perfect instrument for everyone who appreciates awesome sound but doesn't want to schlep around a bulky instrument. The Xaphoon's sound falls somewhere between a saxophone and a clarinet -- a much richer sound than its size would suggest -- and was born to be played wherever and whenever the mood strikes. The experienced player will find the Xaphoon capable of all the subtle shadings and vibrant power of a saxophone. The beginner will find it fun and easy, and good practice for other reed instruments.
The Xaphoon uses a tenor saxophone reed (included), and has a range of two completely chromatic octaves. The fingering is similar to a recorder except for the B and B-flat. Xaphoons are available in the keys of C and B-flat (Pocket Sax available in C).
The original Maui Xaphoon is handmade by Brian Wittman from bamboo cut from the rainforests of East Maui. It is available in the key of C or B-flat, and comes with a 2 1/2 strength tenor saxophone reed.
