The saxophone comes in various sizes and shapes known as Alto, Baritone, Soprano and Tenor. Each instrument is played by blowing air through a reed within the mouthpiece.  This vibrates and different notes are produced by covering and uncovering holes with a system of keys operated by rods and levers.

The soft pads fixed to each key that close the holes off need replacing every couple of years and whilst reeds can last a couple of months it is always wise to have spares available at all times.

A popular instrument in music of all styles, the saxophone is used in orchestras, brass sections and as a solo instrument in blues, jazz and modern music.
