"It's a Joy Machine!"

Congratulations!  You've discovered the original Maui Xaphoon®.  The Xaphoon® (pronounced "za-foon"), is a sax-like instrument for musicians who want a big sound but don't want to carry a large sax.  The Xaphoon's sound is between a saxophone and a clarinet-- a very deep and rich sound for its size -- and was made to be played whenever the mood strikes.  The experienced player will find the Xaphoon® to be expressive and powerful; the beginner will find it fun and easy, and good practice for other reed instruments.
