 So if a clarinet had a conical bore...

...it would be a sax? What would a wooden soprano "sax" sound like?

Depends on the exact shape of the bore and tone holes, just like a metal clarinet is a clarinet.

I agree with jdbassplayer.

As to the second question, a wooden soprano sax would sound just like soprano sax. The material wouldn't make that much difference.

Regardless of the mouthpiece or reeds, saxes and tarogatos are essentially wide bore shawms, so share the same physical traits as oboes, bassoons, heckelphones, sarrusophones, Uilleann pipe chanters and the like with their expanding conical bores.

Saxes are more closely related to oboes than they are to clarinets, even though the sax has a single reed mouthpiece - there are single reed oboe and bassoon mouthpieces, but that makes no difference in the way they behave due to the conical bore.

Clarinets, duduks, rackets, auloi, bagpipe practice chanters, cornamuse and other parallel-bore reed instruments (both single and double) all share the same physical traits. They also behave like pan pipes in they overblow the odd series harmonics instead of all the harmonic series.

Wow, thanks to all for this info. I listened to a YouTube video of a tarogato and it did sound very sax-like. Very interesting.

As a novice, self-taught taragot player, when people ask me what it "is," I tell them it's a wooden soprano sax. The conical/cylindrical bore difference is a little too technical for the layperson. ;) Some clarinetists I've known have thought it was a clarinet, but once they hear that it overblows the octave, they realize it's more like a sax.
