Israeli Start-up Develops Digital Practice Saxophone
The Israeli start-up Emeo Team on Friday launched the Emeo, the first-ever digital practice saxophone, which allows saxophone players to practice and play anywhere, as long as the device his hooked up to their computers or smartphones.
The device has already received international acclaim, with famed Italian jazz saxophonist Rosario Giuliani saying, "It is an incredible invention that you can play everywhere."
The Emeo connects to the devices using USB, MIDI, and Bluetooth and offers a cutting edge solution to the problem of the inherently loud volume of the saxophone, limiting sax players greatly in the manner in which they may practice and play.
The device is not intended to replace the various types of regular saxophones, but rather that the Emeo offers a comfortable solution for practicing conveniently. It is available for pre-order, and the devices are expected to be sent out throughout August. (JPost / VFI News)
