Does anyone know any consonant multiphonics that would sound alright being played in front of an audience? I think the overtone multiphonics don't sound too bad, but does anyone know of any that sound as good or even better? Major thirds, minor thirds, fourths, major sevenths, anything?

Thanks.

Are there any without chewbacca gargles? I know one multiphonic that doesn't sound like that, though it does sound somewhat harsh. It's a multiphonic with high f# and maybe b. I'm not sure what the second note is, but I think it's b.

Some are about venting and voicing. For example, if played right, fingering a low b while opening the eb key can get a nice sounding chord.

Well... Finger an A with the octave key and hit your Eb palm key. I believe it'll give you a C + E combination.

This is especially great for those with six fingers on their right hand :)

I've tried them out and they sound pretty good. I got a C and E with one and a B (two, actually) and a middle D with the other one. Any other ones?

Also, I notice myself that they're easier on the tenor than they are on the alto by a little bit, but that could be because I tried them on the tenor first.
