i doubt there is much difference...although i have very little experience doing it on clarinet. and since i don't currently have one i can't experiment. but, the concept of double tonguing is the same on any instrument. use the tip of your tongue for the first attack then the back of your tongue for the second. i've found that this gets increasingly difficult the higher you play on the saxophone, because the notes start to scoop on the second part of the articulation(back of the tongue). i haven't practiced it enough to give any advice on that.
it's pretty much just a gimmick on the saxophone anyway...i've heard soloist from the past do it very well, but it's always that cheesey kind band music or something...i can think of a few times i've actually used it in performances but it's rare..and if you're REALLY good at single tonguing you'll be fine....
but it is fun to do it. !
