Xaphoon Vertrieb Matthias Kraft
The special characteristic, which is not really new, of the Xaphoon is the full and sonorous sound.
It’s simply constructed, easy to handle and to take along with you. For a reed instrument it’s small, inexpensive and relatively easy to learn how to play.
In the Xaphoon Shop you can see everything offered on this page.
In the meantime, we have been making the Xaphoon known in the European area for over 25 years. Now, the Xaphoon is well on the way to establishing itself as an independent instrument. There are recordings and concerts and the Xaphoon is used in schools. Above all, however, the Xaphoon is used in interplay with other acoustic instruments. As it is small, lightweight and portable the instrument is great to take with you, wherever you may take it.
The original MAUI XAPHOON that is still made of bamboo has been supplemented over the course of the years with further versions made from plastic and wood. There are carrying bags, sheet music and CDs.
In order to find a Xaphoon that suits you, it’s definitely worth selecting an instrument at a lokal retailer. The instruments, made from the natural materials of bamboo and wood, are handcrafted and the materials always have a slightly different workmanship. This means that the instruments always differ slightly in their character, tone colour and articulation. However each instrument is perfectly attuned within itself.
Have fun looking around the Xaphoon-site and don't forget, you can also find a Xaphoon forum on this site.
