This is our first ATMI or All Terrain Musical Instrument!
Playing in only one full octave, the All Terrain Sax is still 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.
Note: The song, Dreamers in Rio, song # 2 was done with the All Terrain Bb sax the one I call the Alto. For a little money, I call it, Your Alto! : )

I AM SPEECHLESS. After buying a few flutes and so called pocket Saxes in the last few years, I received today your All-Terrain Tenor Sax in Key of G! Taking it out the package feeling the weight and seeing the quality, made me realize that until know I only had bought toys!!! The feel is great the sound is unbelievable - I am looking forward on having lots of fun with this great Product. And also planning my next order from Eriktheflutemaker.com!!!
Thank you very much!!! Best regards,

I received the two Saxes, that I ordered from you yesterday, they both play really well, and sound Great. Problem is, they may sound better than my Selmer Saxophone. I am enjoying playing them both.

My father just got me one of these for Christmas. As an instrument collector, I have never seen anything like this before. Truly revolutionary! Bro Doodman Youtube comment Dec.13, 2016
Thank you for the super fast delivery. What a great instrument! I will love playing this sax for years to come. Look forward to checking out your flutes in the future too.

Thank you Erik. I have been getting great sound from it. Amazing grace sounds wonderful. You were right about the Bb having a sexy jazz sound. When I close my eyes I feel like I’m playing on the street in New Orleans. What a wonderful instrument! I am loving playing it and determined to learn many different songs. Being a south Louisiana man I’ve grown up around jazz and blues. I’ve always wanted to be able to play that style and just didn’t take the first step that way til now! So happy I have the All-Terrain Alto in Bb. I can already tell this will be a passion of mine for life. Thank you!

The All-Terrain Tenor Sax is glorious! I love the sound even though I'm still learning how to play it after an hour.
