Xaphoon Standard C

Standard Xaphoon in C

The standard XAPHOON distinguishes itself above all by its precision. It was developed for schools, bands, ensembles and just for all that want each instrument sound exactly the same. The CLASSIC XAPHOON is a standardised Xaphoon. It is produced in Indiana / USA, using high-precision manufacturing process, it is made from the same material as clarinet and saxophone mouthpieces. It is an ideal instrument for beginners and in addition it is less expensive than other Xaphoons.

We especially recommend it 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 sound is more direct and a little stronger than that of the MAUI XAPHOONS.

Fantastic little instrument

musiccollector, 11.11.2018
I was always curious how playing the sax feels, and I like its sound very much. So, without breaking the bank to get a sax which I may or may not use, I got a Xaphoon.
It's a very interesting instrument. I like the fact that it's very small and unpretentious, virtually maintenance free. Despite its size, it produces a nice full sound.
I also bought a 1.5 rico royal reed, as some have recommended for beginners. I will experiment after I become reasonably adept to see if I like that better than the original 2.5 reed.
I only rated it 4 stars for quality, because on the sides you can see the lines where the plastic was molded. However, that does not influence the playing or comfort, since you never touch that area during playing. So the finish isn't anything to write home about, but then again, you get the instrument for playing, and that it does very well.

Pros: small, nice full sound, relatively easy to learn, lots of fun, moderately priced compared to sax/clarinet;
Cons: the finish feels a little cheap (unlike 10e Yamaha recorder), it could've included a cloth bag (like aforementioned recorder).

An advice for beginners

19.03.2017
Strong sounding instrument especially in the low range. The notes above F in the second octave are quite hard to play consistently so if you intend to play in the high register this may not be the right instrument for you.
If you haven't played a sax or clarinet before I suggest that you buy a Rico Royal 1 reed for Tenor Sax to help you get some decent notes out of this instrument. The Xaphoon comes with a 2,5 reed and to me it was very difficult to make a good sound from this reed. But with the softer reed you may have fun from the beginning and avoid many frustrations.
