The XAPHOON DE CATALUNYA is the noblest among the Xaphoons.
The almond wood used to make the Xaphoon comes from Spain. It is a reddish color and normally has a fine wood grain. Almond wood feels denser and heavier than oak wood, for example. The tone is warm and sonorous.
The XAPHOON DE CATALUNYA is the newest development among the Xaphoons. Each of these Xaphoons is made in Catalonia by CESC SANS and his employees at the company SANS LUTHIER, a workshop specializing in the manufacture of traditional woodwind instruments.
Like the other Xaphoons, the instruments can be played over two octaves. The XAPHOON DE CATALUNYA is currently only available in the C version.
