Quality Saxophones at the Sax Online Store
The saxophone was invented by Adolphe Sax in order to have a link that will connect the brass section and the woodwinds. It combines woodwind-like swiftness and strong vocal quality thus creating an idyllic balance. The saxophone is made of brass but since the sound it produced is due to the oscillations of a single reed, it has long been categorized as a woodwind. The mouthpiece of the saxophone is that of a clarinet while the body takes that of the ophicleide which is already outdated. The acoustic properties of a saxophone is patterned from the French horn. In the beginning, the saxophone was intended as a military instrument and was doing a great job. Later on, it played an important role in concert music and big band and provided more character in chamber music, choral music, symphonies and even operas.
