The Cafe Saxophone has reportedly flirted a bit with carbon fibre @Pete ThomasI guess it's time to reconsider the material saxophones are made of. I can't believe we haven't seen any carbon fiber or other composite material made horns on the market yet. Is there a good reason?
I can't say I've ever heard it called a Hungarian clarinet. The only clarinet like thing is the fingering system, which is derived from a German clarinet, but it's unrelated acoustically. So: xxx x0x for F and xxx x00 for F#. It also has 2 octave keys and a right hand thumb key for low Bb.Isn’t the Tarogato known as a Hungarian clarinet? I know that it’s a conical bore though the fingerings look a bit out there when I’ve watched a few vids. Overblown at the octave though you say? Dino Soldo makes it sound like a soprano sax..
I'm actualy surprised that there is such a small edge by numbers. I would expect more members are alto players/owners than is represented here.Of 60 respondents, Alto rules!
Members of a speciality interest saxophone forum are quite likely to own more than one saxophone and probably the first two in a collection are likely to be alto and tenor.I'm actualy surprised that there is such a small edge by numbers.
