o OK...I believe the one I had and the one I got for my son is a recorder
then...it can be over blown...I should look into getting him a fluophone
though...it might be less annoying and easier for him to learn something on :) thank
you :) one quick question too...my jazz band would mic the solo saxes coming
out on improv and it seems that they could do it without being micd but also
that if we didn't no one would notice them...because the people don't know what
is going on...also they were way to shy to play loud so depending on there
volume the director would up and down the volume...do you think that the band was
too loud...or do you mean in a professional way...not HS level...I have only
been on the HS lever so far...I hope to move back to Ohio and start college
soon...and I hope everyone here will be my friends all the way through...i watch
and listen to what you all say and take it in...thank you for teaching me
sometimes unknowingly... :)

The Flutophone, like the Conn Song Flute and the Tonette, is similar to a
recorder but designed NOT to overblow to the higher octave. Your range is
thus limited to about one octave, but you need almost no sensitivity in how
hard you blow. As a PRE-recorder it is nearly perfect.

Bill Hausmann

If you have to mic a saxophone, the rest of the band is TOO LOUD!
