The saxophone has a unique history on how it changed from a simple novelty instrument becoming one of the most recognized instruments in the world of music. This instrument was invented in 1841 by a renowned Belgian musician named Adolphe Sax. Later he created an entire saxophone family comprising of 14 different saxophones each with distinct pitch and dimension which included the B flat soprano E flat sopranino F sopranino C soprano E flat alto F alto B flat tenor C tenor E flat baritone E flat contrabass B flat bass C bass and F contrabass. Despite being made from brass the saxophone is categorized as a woodwind instrument as the sound is produced by an oscillating reed. Initially designed for military bands the saxophone has most recently found its place in symphonic bands and big band music.
