My saxes are fun and cool. They play in major, minor and pentatonic scales. You can bend notes and get a sax growl. The limitation is that it is a one octave instrument. Even though that is true, musicians in the audio industry who make movies and commercials use them as well as musicians on stage. Yanni's sax player played one of my saxes in the Tribute Concert around the world.
My Bamboo Saxes are made with Bambusa Multiplex from old Florida plantings; from ancient Chinese bamboo that settled for centuries in Japan and then came into the early gardens of pioneer horticulturists in Florida in the mid 1880's. I am also using Bambusa Textilis Gracilis growing in our bamboo garden.
Cocobolo Wood Saxes are made from beautiful exotic wood from the Pacific Rim between Mexico and Nicaragua.
The All Terrain Sax is made from an industrial unbreakable polymer which is great for taking on the trail.
The Carbon Fiber Sax is concert tuned in Bb major (my alto sax sound). And my tenor sounding sax is in G.
For the serious musician, I recommend the concert tuned saxes in A440.
Anything tuned to itself is good to play by yourself.
