Saxophone Info Here

Do you want some online saxophone info? Well, here it is, in the form of historical facts. The patent for the saxophone came in the year 1946, courtesy of Adolphe Sax (1814-1894). Here are the various members of the saxophone family: sopranino in Eb, soprano in Bb, alto in Eb, tenor in Bb, baritone in Eb, bass in Bb, contrabass in Eb and subcontrabass in Bb. Wow! That’s a big family!

Saxophones really blend well with either brass or woodwind instruments. The 1930s saw this instrument’s popularity soar in jazz bands. Presently, the most popular models are the Eb alto and the Bb tenor sax.

Saxophones have been featured and showcased with orchestra by many composers including Debussy, Milhaud and Villa-lobos. They were also staples in the big bands of Duke Ellington and Glenn Miller.
