    I was surfing the www and came across a very cool instrument called a Jazzophone. From what I gather it is a trumpet that is shaped like a saxaphone! Here are a few pics that I was able to get off the www

    The only site I could find on the web is a German site that lists the Jazzophone as an instrument under the 'INDEX' on the middle of the left hand side of the page. http://www.instrumentenweb.com
    Anyone know anything about this cool looking instrument???

    I look at those pics, and somehow "cool" is NOT the word that comes to mind!

    Yee HAW!
    Well, the first photo comes from Andy Taylor's website and the 'instrument' uses a trumpet mouthpiece: http://www.taylortrumpets.com/images/jazophoneart.jpg

    The second one ... is definitely different! Looks like the results of a 3-way between a trumpet, an alto sax and a bassoon!

    it will make you sound like Miles Davis when playing fast and Wynton Marsalis when playing ballads....if they were playing a saxamaphone

    Thanks Ed

    You confirmed what I was thinking. I was going to http://www.taylortrumpets.com/ to ask Andy if he knew what a Jazzophone was :cool: Its such a cool looking unique horn that it would definatly turn heads at gigs!
