Remember Benedikt Eppelsheim? He’s been a bit quiet recently: after he announced his Bb contrabass clarinet and the Eb contrabass sax, there haven’t been any additions to his website. I know that he’s produced Sarrusaphones and Ophicleides, but as of yet nothing has come up.
However, looking at Guntram Wolf’s website, the picture that with any luck should appear with this post features heavily. He and Eppelsheim have previously collaborated on the Contraforte, a redesigned Contrabassoon and evidently they have been busy working on this Lupophone. I know that it isn’t a saxophone, but it looks so extraordinary that I felt that I had to share it with you.
