This is our first ATMI or All Terrain Musical Instrument!
The All Terrain Sax is cool and fun and can be taken anywhere without worry. 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 Saxes are professionally tuned.To play with others in tune it is good to warm up the instrument. A moist reed and your breath bring it into pitch. Playing outside on a hot day should be in pitch. 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 dryer will get it back in A440.
Our saxes can play in major, minor and pentatonic, get sharps and flats and can bend notes but unfortunately they are only one octave. Even so, many Jazz players use them, folks in the movie audio and famous musicians like in the Yanni concerts have used our saxes in public and on their cds.
The Alto in Bb major will also play in C minor and Eb.
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.
After 48 years of flute making, this is one of the coolest things we have made.
The All Terrain Saxophone comes with: An Alto Sax Mouthpiece, Cap, Ligature, 2 tenor - 1 1/2 reeds, our How to DVD which teaches the secret to Jazz, sax bag and because you look marvelous and I am motivated, Shipping and handling inside USA is included.
Note to all professional musicians: We recommend that you do not remove the mouthpiece for your very expensive one.
Note: The song, Dreamers in Rio, song # 2 was done with the All Terrain Bb sax the one I call the Alto.
