The 17 inch Alto Sax is good for all hands. It has a great jazzy voice. This is the one most people buy.
The Alto Bamboo Sax is finished dark and carved with a rich and glassy feel.
For musicians I recommend the concert tuned sax in Bb. It will play in Bb major, C minor and Eb.
After much experimentation, I recommend using a tenor 1 1/2 reed on the alto sax mouthpiece.
My DVD, Bamboo Sax 101 teaches the secret to Jazz also and is found in "Other Products".
Every Bamboo Sax comes with a bag to keep it safe and an extra reed.
What you are saying...
I just want to say that I am thrilled with all of the instruments I have recently purchased.
I ordered the Bamboo Sax and I wasn't disappointed. They aren't just wonderful sounding instruments, they are unique, handcrafted pieces of art, which has always appealed to me. Thank you again for sharing your gift with me. Thank you also for the good work you are doing for those through your ministry.

We received our bamboo flutes and saxophone last week. It was very fast service! The flutes sound amazing. They will give us endless joy on our travels. The saxophone is incredible. They are presented so beautifully in the bag, and they look like lovely pieces of art. Thank you so much.

I recently bought an alto bamboo sax. I have never played a reed instrument before. I must say that I love this instrument,Tonight I'm bringing it to my band practice to play with some of the guys (I play in a jazz band). Thank goodness I got the concert tuned Bb sax! Thank you so much!
...Just played with the band and we all loved it!

Hi Erik and Linda,
I wanted to say a BIG THANK YOU to Erik for the wonderful BAMBOO SAX in Bb. The mellow tone and ease of playing far exceeds any of my expectations. I would also like to say a BIG THANK YOU to Linda for the beautiful carving. My husband bought the bamboo sax as a present for my birthday and the design makes it really special! I absolutely love it!!!

I bought the alto sax from you at the street fair. You had told me there were a lot more song on line and that I could down load them. I can not find the written number music? Does it not need to be cleaned out. I listened to the video and also didn't you say there were songs in there? I listened to the sax portion and did not see any.
I'll be ordering one of your Alto Saxes either later today or tomorrow...my wife says I am officially addicted to your flutes! Thanks Erik!
