One of those Line6 kidney beans along with the guitar below was my travel setup! 🙂

Everything easily fit in overhead storage on planes.

 

What I resorted to when we travelled to Russia and Spain...

And when they couldn't find my luggage after we landed, I was very happy not to have taken my precious strat, just this disasembled Epiphone LP Junior. It's all I needed to write and record sketches and basic demos.

I would love to try one of those, but I don't know where to start.

Is there a low cost alternative?

I think Roland has an Aerophone that you can plug into your computer and use a software synth.

However, if the synth doesn't respond to continuous controller 2, you will need an interface that will convert it to cc11.

I have only found one synth module that I really, really like, and it's out of production. The Yamaha VL70-m. The physical modeling software responds so well that it feels like I am playing an instrument, instead of triggering a synthesizer.

On stage I probably play almost 1/3 tenor sax, 1/3 wind synth and 1/3 guitar. I may sneak in a couple of flute songs but some days it sits on the stand for the entire gig. We have about 650 songs of various genres and eras, what we choose to play depends entirely on the audience in front of us at the time.

A good place to start is here:

https://www.patchmanmusic.com/forum/

It's a forum for wind synth players, it's a very friendly group, and the members are eager to help newbies.

Whoa!  I just checked the price.

I'm out for this hand.

Might get some better cards next time.

Speaking of one-man bands... Great blues player from back home - a cool guy, too.

You can get the MINI for $330 US

https://www.kraftmusic.com/roland-ae-01-aerophone-mini.html

but it won't do as much as the 30 for $1,400 US

https://www.kraftmusic.com/roland-aerophone-pro-ae-30-digital-wind-instrument.html

and Akai still makes an EWI, the USB model goes for about $350 US

I'm not fond of the EWI myself, but a lot of people love them.

I use a discontinued Yamaha WX5 which is a MIDI Wind Controller with no sounds. That way I can then choose the synth I want to play it with. You can find used ones on the market, but I'd recommend getting a used one from Patchman Music because he is a wind synth player and repairman and will make sure it is working properly. (I have no affiliation with Patchman  Music).

Good musical instruments just cost a lot of money. Fortunately, I do this for a living, so I can justify the expense.

I had this one custom-made for me. Built in Taiwan, imported by a Texas company that used to make saxophones but now only makes mouthpieces. I guess it's my "signature model" :D
