About This Listing

Besides being one of the first of wind synthesizers, this instrument is unique in a number of other respects. First up, there is of course its shape. To this day it remains one of the only—if not the only—wind synth that is shaped like a saxophone.

Unlike other wind controllers, the DH-800 can be powered via batteries, has a built-in sound generator, amplifier, and speaker, so you can play it in any environment!

  • It features built-in sounds as well as a MIDI OUT jack which allows you to expressively control MIDI synths. 
  • It also has a built-in synth featuring SIX sounds: saxophone, trumpet, synth-reed, oboe, clarinet, and flute. 

There is a built-in speaker with volume control.

There are switches to select the sound, transpose (2 octaves), and a Breath switch which allows you to play the horn without needing to blow into it if desired. 

There are also connections for headphones, MIDI OUT, and an AC adaptor (AC adaptor not included). 

The DH-800 also runs on five “AA” batteries making wireless a possibility using a standard wireless guitar system. There is a power-on LED indicator…

The DH-800 is a rather expressive MIDI controller. 

  • It transmits the full range of aftertouch data in response to your breath. 
  • It transmits variable velocity in response to how hard you attack a note. 
  • It transmits program changes 0 through 5 when you select the various tones with the tone button. 
  • It also transmits Portamento Switch (CC#65) when you press the Portamento key. 

This is a great way to get into the wonderful world of wind controllers.

we hope you enjoy your new product!
