Take your sax show on the road with this tiny saxophone, which claims to be the smallest electronic instrument of its kind in the world.

Traditional brass saxophones are not known to be the most portable of instruments, with most people transporting them around in hefty cases. This can be a problem if you are often on the road but want to keep up with your practice.

The Travel Sax is super small and lightweight, so you can take it anywhere. It’s also Bluetooth- and USB-enabled, so you can connect to a smartphone or tablet to record yourself via compatible audio apps.

There is even an accompanying Travel Sax app which helps you learn the instrument as you go. It has been made to mimic brass saxophones in terms of key position and pressure, so you should have no trouble switching back and forth.

A rechargeable lithium battery offers up to six hours of non-stop playing, long enough for all but the most obsessive saxophone students. When you run out of juice, just recharge via USB.

If you are keen on recording, connect the Travel Sax to your PC or Mac and use it as a mini controller. It’s a great idea and one that caught fire on Kickstarter, rocketing past its funding goal.

You can buy one for $450 online.
