Different types of saxophones

There are mainly four different types of saxophones- Today we will discuss the four different types of saxophones and exactly what sets apart one saxophone from the other. In this topic we will go from small to big!

Soprano Saxophone- The soprano saxophone is the smallest saxophone of them all! It comes in Bb. It is known to be the hardest in the saxophone family. Depending on company and brand they can either come curved or straight. Our coming model the SS-400 will be curved.


 

 

Alto Saxophone- Perhaps the most popular among its siblings. The alto saxophone comes in Eb. It is generally regarded as the easiest and starting point for beginners. As of now, Jean Paul USA has the AS-400, a superb saxophone for players at all levels! 

 

 

Tenor Saxophone- Also very popular is the tenor saxophone. It comes in Bb and is mostly used in Jazz and Rock since it is in the key of Bb. It is much bigger than the Alto. The Jean Paul USA TS-400 is great for these types of music. 

 

 

Baritone Saxophone- Like the Alto saxophone the Baritone plays in the key of Eb. It has an extremely deep sound and fits very well with Jazz and Funk. It is the biggest of all its siblings.
