For sale - wooden Tarogato Bb. Tarogato is a mix of a soprano sax and a clarinet, it is actually a Hungarian or Romanian traditional folk instrument, not really sure.This tarogato is 40 years, and because it was not played for many years it requires an overall revision to be in good working condition. At the top of the instrument, the lake is slightly cracked. At the joints there are small cracks do not affect the sound of the instrument. Mouthpieces new.

History of the instrument:
"The mouthpiece and reed are roughly similar to those on a clarinet, but although newer tárogató mouthpieces take a clarinet reed, the actual mouthpieces are not interchangeable. The fingering is similar to a Soprano Sax, and like a saxophone, the tárogató breaks into the upper register an octave higher, rather than the musical twelfth of the clarinet".
Technically this is a Soprano Tarogato in Bb. Most tarogatos produced are Sopranos like this, but other sizes exist. The tone is quite like soprano sax but withthe softer, warmer and more haunting tone you might expect from a wooden instrument.
