This is our first ATMI or All Terrain Musical Instrument!
The All Terrain Sax is cool and fun. It was designed so that it can be taken anywhere without worry. From the Sahara Desert to the Rain Forest, the ATMI cries out, “Take me with you!”
The All Terrain Sax will go where other instruments fear to tread, it is also a crowd pleaser and brings a groove everywhere you go.
Material used: We wanted to use a material unaffected by water, dropping, able to handle harsh environments and performed extremely well. We 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.
The All Terrain Saxophone comes with: An Alto Sax Mouthpiece, Cap, Ligature, 2 reeds, "Outdoors" bag with a strap & a pocket for your extra reed and our How to DVD which teaches the secret to Jazz.
The All Terrain Saxes are professionally tuned.
The Soprano in D major will also play in E minor, G and B minor.
The C major will also play in D minor A minor and F.
The Alto in Bb major will also play in C minor and Eb.
The Tenor in G major will also play in A minor and C.
The free tutorial on this page teaches how to play in these keys and gives you a good idea of which one to choose.
The audio demos give a good feel for their quality in a recording atmosphere.
The reed is a standard Tenor 1 1/2 reed available in music stores. Washing the reed after use with water will let it stay fresh and clean. Let it dry upside down so air can go under it. The reed will need to be replaced from time to time. The All Terrain Sax is best heard in nice acoustics or played professionally with reverb.
In cold environments instruments sound flat so warming up the sax with your breath into the finger holes or for a quick fix using a hair drier will get it back in A440.
After 46 years of flute making, this is one of the coolest things we have made.
