This bamboo ''saxophone'' was evidently made in 1999. It has a Rico Royal B5 alto mouthpiece glued to a bamboo body.
There are six holes on the front and one on the back, giving a diatonic Bb scale. As the body is a cylinder, rather than a cone, the instrument overblows a twelfth (in Eb). It acts like a clarinet, rather than a saxophone.
The fingering feels right for someone who knows how to play a clarinet or saxophone (or even recorder!) With this pocket sax, you don't have to learn a whole new way of playing, as you do with the Xaphoon.
A funky cloth sack is included, and the Tall Guy rustled up a brand-new reed for you. (The reed in the picture has been tossed out!) There's a brass mouthpiece cap, as well.
The Tall Guy has been too busy playing his regular instruments to give this one much attention, and it has been sitting on a shelf for years. The ligature and cap are no longer shiny and new, but the instrument as a whole has no major defects.
The bamboo sax ships for $6.99 anywhere in the Continental United States. If you want it shipped elsewhere, you must pay the actual cost of shipping
