Though admittedly fairly far off-topic, since there have been several
resent posts about new technology I though I'd toss the new "Seraphone"
into the mix.
I was watching the dynamic French Celtic group, "The Doolin' Band," and
noticed an intriguing instrument that looked like a giant wooden
melodica, but didn't sound like one. I had to investigate. It turns out
that it is called, the "Seraphone."
It turns out that this free reed instrument is similar to other
melodicas but it plays with both blow and draw reeds. This means,
amongst other things that it is capable of single-reed bends. Apparently
the owner, Marc Serafini, also built it and is offering new ones for a
mere 3,000 Euros.
Anyway I thought some of the free-reed afficionados on the L might enjoy
knowing about this new (at least to me) instrument. If so, here is a
page from a melodica forum that tells more about it.
Happy Holidays from the Rocky Mountain West,
