always interesting , after all there are big similarities among the saxophone and the sarrusophone to the point that.......

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sarrusophone

"The fingering of the sarrusophone is nearly identical to that of the saxophone. This similarity caused Adolphe Sax to file and lose at least one lawsuit against Gautrot, claiming infringement upon his patent for the saxophone. Sax lost on the grounds that the tone produced by the two families of instruments is markedly different, despite their mechanical similarities. However, because the sarrusophone never reached wide acceptance, makers were not inclined to develop its mechanism to the same extent as that of the saxophone..."

if you want to experiment you need some sort of BOCAL to place the reed in the saxophone somehow.............abd listen to the advise given in the first video, at the end!:bluewink:

Amazing... (the music is too)

also the NEY , side blown flute technique on soprano!

Do you have any close up picture of the adaptation of the the Duduk reeds?

Dis you just insert a double reed in the soprano, have you ever tried to use a duduk double reed on tenor or alto?
