Erik the Flutemaker All-Terrain Saxophone
This instrument is made of a material unaffected by water, dropping, able to handle harsh environments and performed extremely well. Erik decided to use a strong long lasting polymer manufactured to last decades. Along with a handsome strong laminate like that which is used on expensive custom cars, designed for harsher environments. Thus the All Terrain Saxes are made from a super strong industrial polymer covered with black vinyl that looks like carbon fiber.
This handmade Saxoflute, or Alto All-Terrain Saxophone is made by Erik the Flutemaker. It features a classic saxophone mouthpiece. It is a reed instrument, just like a real saxophone. It requires a little practice to get comfortable playing such an instrument.
