I've been searching to see if Tenrai has any plans to make an Alto C 8-hole. Haven't found anything.

Has anyone else heard?

I recall someone getting a Soprano A, not sure about Alto pendants by Tenrai though.

I'd email, see if they would. I suspect they're saving Alto's until they make their transverse.

I believe their nine hole may be an alto C. It is supposed to still be based off of the pendant fingering, but shaped like a transverse.

I actually asked Akira once about the potential of Alto Pendants, but she said that she doesn't like the idea of them because once they get bigger they don't really retain their "pendant-ness" and so the idea puts her off.

Plus she's got other stuff in the works such as:

So yea!

Aah!
But Thanks!

I was just playing my Focalink Seedpod Alto C. I hadn't played it for a while. I like it. :)

The main reason I don't play it more is that quite a few of my songs need that lower A. I think if I had an Alto C English Pendant with subholes, I'd play it instead of my 12 hole transverse.

Oh. I wonder if my 8 Hole will be a Soprano A too. That'd be great, since I don't own a Soprano A yet ^^

I think they are in C. Not too sure since i cant hear notes yet. But the diagram looks like a c on a keyboard.

No, the 8-Holes are all Soprano C's.

According to Akira, initially the 6 holes all used to be tuned to G#, but she tweaked them to go upto A.

Since both have the same size, both have the same lowest note, the "Soprano" A. But because of the different scale they are tuned to, the six holes are Soprano A's and the eight holes Soprano C's.
