This handmade Saxoflute, or Bamboo Clarinet is made by Erik the Flutemaker. The body is made out of bamboo, while the mouthpiece is 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.

It requires a little practice to get comfortable playing such an instrument. This instrument is tuned to itself, meaning that it will not sound in tune when playing with for example a piano player, but it sounds beautifully in tune when playing on your own.

How to play this flute

  • Just like a real clarinet, it uses a mouthpiece with a reed
  • You need to shape your mouth in a specific way (embouchure) to create sound
  • Put your upper teeth on the mouthpiece, and softly bite down
  • Fold your lower lip over your bottom teeth
  • Blow with an open throat into the mouthpiece
  • This sax has six fingerholes on top, and a backhole.

The musical possibilities

  • Easily plays in the major scale
  • It also plays in the minor scale
  • You can also play notes outside of these scales
  • You can do this by half-covering some of the holes
  • It has a reach of one octave
