Saxophone Combined With Organ (Jan, 1936)

Saxophone Combined With Organ

TONE modulation such as only the most accomplished wind instrument artist can achieve can now be duplicated by a beginner as a result of a new instrument called the solfia now being manufactured in Germany. The new wind instrument is played with a mouthpiece similar to that of a saxophone, but the notes are controlled by an organ keyboard. An air chamber within the device modulates the tone and adds resonance.

    Saxogan? Orgophone? No; “solfia”. Wha’??

    Solfia is a rare, monotypic genus of flowering plant in the palm family native to Southeast Asia.

    This looks like the worlds most difficult breathalyzer/drunk test.
