Steve Hackett on guitar with his brother John playing flute.
The HJ apparently was created to help him overcome a disability due to an accident.
You can see it starting around 3:45 in.

There are a couple of companies that make these, the ones I’ve seen and tried bring the flute more to the center....

An illustration of why I still love early Genesis; I love how he moves into Horizons at 1:40.

And Firth of Fifth at 13:18!

Interesting! The shape is a little like the albesiphone, which I've read about but may not exist. Who makes these?

Hi, folks
I just finished making this adaptive saxophone for a customer who only has one hand to operate the sax. To stay within budget restraints, I developed a novel key control systems, with dyneema cables. There is a one-legged stand that clicks on the sax, so it has a single support point on the ground. This allows the player maximum freedom to move around. There is also a side support so she can use her (barely functional) left hand to keep the horn in balance. It is a breeze to play. If you have any questions, fire away!
best regards from rainy Amsterdam!

Dear saxwebbers
I'm delighted to ell you all that I have won the OHMI 2016 Aaward for one handed saxophones I built for Neill Duncan. Here a vid: https://youtu.be/fUUXfP1RV2w?list=PLPBlAr4BznO84YxR3IkPXddHYFu-8I2OH
I built a tenor first, and then Neill commissioned a soprano. Neill is performing professionaly on both instruments.
best regards, Maarten Visser
Flutelab, Amsterdam

Fabulous! One-handed flutes have been made for a century, but the one-handed saxophone is much more difficult, and Visser's work is absolutely brilliant.
