Building on the successful launch of their first Saxmonica, the New Zealand based musicians responsible for designing the instrument, have again returned to Kickstarter and successfully blasted past their required pledge goal thanks to over 450 backers with still 23 days remaining on their campaign. The second generation Saxmonica builds upon the first but now includes four new features, refinements and enhancements. Check out the demonstration video below to learn more about the second-generation Saxmonica.
Pledges are available from £27 or NZ$52 with worldwide shipping expected to take place during July 2019. New features included in the second generation include :
– 2 new lower tubes with completely new scales and keys
– Great new App features
– Custom colours
– Meditation sounds
“With the assistance and support of everybody that backed us for the initial Kickstarter campaign we have been able to continue the development of the Saxmonica sound taking it to great new places. We now have our manufacturing and distribution method very well developed so although the initial development stage of the Saxmonica took longer than anticipated we are very pleased with the outcome. More importantly we have now reduced our development and distribution time significantly. This means that we can easily meet our production and distribution goals..”
