There are 2 general types of Xaphoons available:
1) The original, hand-made instrument cut from bamboo growing wild on the island of Maui, Hawaii. The bamboo instruments come in a variety of keys, including C, Bb, and D.
2) A more affordable “Pocket Sax” made of high-impact ABS plastic. This very popular alternative to the original comes in the key of C and is available in a variety of colors.
A tenor saxophone reed, affixed to a built-in mouthpiece, is responsible for the instrument’s unique sound. All models possess a 2-octave, fully chromatic scale.
If you’re an independent thinker who can appreciate a truly unique and original instrument, the Xaphoon will become one of your most treasured belongings.
