Xaphoon Maui C

Maui Xaphoon in C

The MAUI XAPHOON C is the original Xaphoon and the first patented instrument of its kind. Each instrument has been built by its inventor Brian "Papa B." Wittman in his small workshop in Hawaii.

We especially recommend C XAPHOON for the interplay with string and keyboard instruments, C or F-flute. The C Xaphoons are somewhat shorter than the B ones, which for smaller hands is an advantage. The blowing force is sufficient already for 2-3 years old children, however, primarily due to the finger size, our experience shows that the standard XAPHOON can be well teached to children from 6 years. On this instrument C - / F - / B major and A - / D - / G - minor are the easiest to play.

The MAUI XAPHOON compared to the CLASSIC XAPHOON is more individual, as the bamboo material it is made of. The mood is indeed the same but the tones are quite different.So at times it resembles slightly more to the clarinet and times stronger towards saxophone. The sound is natural, perhaps a little warmer than the CLASSIC XAPHOONS.

The Xaphoon - Indeed a swinging instrument

Henrik W, 25.09.2013
It's a beautiful instrument with, in my opinion, its greatest potential in jazz and
jazz-like music where you can easily discover the greatness of its sound. Personally, I love improvising along with Django Reinhardt's music. Only your fantasy (and skills) will set the limits for you. Unfortunately, it has some weaknesses. The Low C# tone is really weak, at least on mine. I haven't compared to anyone else's. Furthermore, it's hard to properly hit the notes on the higher octave. If you prefer a little deeper sound, I'll recommend you to go for the Bb. However, it is a small instrument which should fit really small hands, even without exerting oneself. Practice alot and this instrument will perform magic!

A booklet will come along with the fingering charts and further information about the instrument, but unfortunately, it's just written in German. I advice you to consider its accuracy to hit the perfect pitch as this is what I found the most troublesome part of the instrument. Being a brass player might help you on your way. I am, since long, a woodwind player which I think made me experience the Xaphoon as a bit inconvinient. But I'm getting used to it! Also, make sure you keep the mouthpiece as clean as possible.
Good Luck!

Why not?

Neil945, 17.05.2013
So I saw it and thought...why not. Some much richer sounds emerge from the end of this little thing that you would credit - if you can manage it. Takes quite a bit of puff - more say than a sax, so not for the weak lungged. Also more control required on the reed pressure to get the full range of notes. Very nice quality and feel and you can still smell the hot poker that burned the fingerholes! Small, portable, versatile but challenging. Should you get one? Why not?
