Really, now that'd be very cool. I tend to use synthetic reeds on my rarely played instruments as they are always ready to go. :ugeek:Saxagenarian said:They're great for recycling old tenor reeds!
Gandalfe said:Like the QWERTY keyboard in typewriters, wouldn't it be nice to have the same fingerings on all instruments? Then you could spend your time on voicing and embellishments.
yes, fingering really sucks... but its quite easy to reach the tune you want even if fingering is not perfect by bending your lips. the xaphoon feels really free in that way
That is what I love about instruments like this!
I just ordered one for myself out of curiosity and am excited to play it as it's right up my alley. It's a nice break from the fancy modern "mechanical" instruments, nothing takes me back to my roots in hand made tube-with-reed-and-holes instruments more than things like these.
