The saxophone is a single-reed woodwind instrument with a conical body, which is generally brass. Sound is created when a cane reed on a mouthpiece vibrates, producing a sound wave inside the instrument’s body, as it does with all single-reed instruments. The Pitch is adjusted by changing the effective length of the tube by opening and closing apertures in the body. Leather pads attached to keys manipulated by the player seal the holes. Saxophones come in a variety of sizes, and they’re virtually always used as transposing instruments. Saxophonists are those who play the saxophone.

Classical music (concert bands, chamber music, solo repertoire, and occasionally orchestras), military bands, marching bands, jazz (large bands and jazz combinations), and current music all employ the saxophone. In various rock and roll and popular music forms, the saxophone is also utilized as a solo and melody instrument or as part of a horn section.

Adolphe Sax, a Belgian instrument manufacturer, created the saxophone in the early 1840s and patented it on June 28, 1846. Sax created two sets of seven instruments, one containing instruments in C and F and the other containing instruments in B and E. The B and E instruments quickly became the most popular, and most saxophones today are from this series. Instruments of the C and F series never acquired a footing and accounted for a small fraction of Sax’s total production. High Pitch (sometimes designated “H” or “HP”) saxophones tuned sharper than the (concert) A = 440 Hz standard were made into the early twentieth century for acoustic characteristics appropriate for outdoor usage, but they are not playable with contemporary tuning and are regarded obsolete. Low Pitch (sometimes referred to as “L” or “LP”) saxophones are tuned in the same way as contemporary instruments. During the early twentieth century, saxophones in C soprano and C melody were made for the casual market as parlor instruments, while saxophones in F were introduced in the late 1920s but never achieved favor. B and E saxophones make up the whole contemporary saxophone family. The B soprano, E alto, B tenor, and E baritone saxophones are the most often used.

The Pitch of a saxophone is adjusted by changing the length of the vibrating air column by opening and shutting tone holes throughout the instrument’s body. Leather pads attached to keys seal the tone holes; most are controlled using the player’s fingers, while others are operated with the palm or side of a finger. An octave key boosts the lower notes’ Pitch by one octave. With all of the pads closed, the lowest note is the (written) B below middle C. Modern baritone saxophones are frequently built to play a low A, while a limited number of alto saxophones have also been made to play a low A. The F two and a half octaves above the low B has historically been the highest keyed note, although higher-quality instruments now include an additional key for a high F, and some modern soprano saxophones have a high G key.
