A precursor to the Chameleon, the Toob is a concept instrument on which the Chameleon has been based.  Only ten have been crafted so far, each numbered 1 to 10, and more may not be made.  The architecture is the same as the 2 legged Chameleon, with G# and Eb keys and thumb-holes (which can also be plugged). 

The keys have been cut and formed rather than 3-D printed, and the return mechanisms make use of innovative, elegant and effective torsion springs.  Like the Chameleon the body is blue-green anodised. 

The Toob came into existence three years before the Chameleon but has remained in the workshop for testing.  A small number are now available for sale.  All come with a brushed aluminium and see-through case and a ten year Guarantee.

The thumbhole position requires a longer play-in time than the 4 legged Chameleon in order to make the stretch comfortably.  With practise it does come however, and offers the added advantage of direct contact with the tone-hole for for the F and B♭ notes, for ornamentation - cuts, rolls and bends.   Like the 2 legged Chameleon the Toob is a instrument for bold and intrepid explorers wishing to explore new musical territory.   

PLEASE NOTE: These will be available for dispatch from the third week in December 2022.
