Saxophones

Saxophone – wind musical instrument, on the basis of sound belonging to the family of reed winds. The invention relates to a top saxophone 1840s. The name was in honor of its developer Adolphe Sax. Saxophone soprano – the smallest of the four most common types of saxophone. The tonal range of the instrument is quite extensive – it covers about three octaves. This allows the player to not only perform software classical works, but also resort to various improvisations. 

There are multiple styles of the saxophone that come in a number of different shapes and sizes. They are arranged by size and are structured in the same way voices are stacked in a vocal choir: soprano, alto, tenor, bass etc. Although some of them differ in their shape and size, they all have a similar design, use a single reed mouthpiece and consist of conical tube with keys and hole covers with a flared bell at the end. There are four most common types of the saxophone:

  • Soprano
  • Alto
  • Tenor
  • Baritone

 

The soprano saxophone is the smallest and has the highest pitch of the four. The soprano saxophone is pitched to B flat (Bb) and the body of the instrument can be either straight and curved. Due to its higher pitch it is commonly used for jazz music. Because the soprano saxophone can be more difficult to play it is not recommended for beginners and is better suited to already proficient alto or tenor players.

The alto saxophone is one of the most popular types of saxophone and is particularly popular with student players. Most saxophonists will have started with an alto saxophone before moving to another type of saxophone. The alto saxophone is pitched to E flat (Eb) and the smaller size and small mouthpiece make it easy to learn, even for younger players. Because the fingering for all saxophones is very similar, alto saxophonists can easily graduate to other types of saxophone as they develop their skills. The alto saxophone is typically found in jazz bands.

The tenor saxophone is the most popular choice of saxophone. It is larger than the alto saxophone and has a lower pitch (Bb). Because the tenor saxophone is a larger instrument and requires more air to be blown through it to produce a sound it difficult for beginners or younger players to play. Most saxophonists will start with an alto and move up to a tenor saxophone when they have developed their breathing and fingering skills. The tenor saxophone is not only popular in modern jazz but is also regularly used in pop and rock music.

The baritone saxophone is the largest of the four with a much lower tone (Eb). Because of its size, weight, and the large amount of air needed to produce a sound it is also the least used of the four. The baritone is not recommended for beginners and younger players but is a great choice for more advanced saxophonists. Those that play the baritone will often wear a harness to help support the weight of the instrument. The baritone saxophone is most commonly found in music ensembles and jazz solos that require a deep bass sound.
