Sax on the Web (SOTW), founded by Harri Rautiainen, Internet's leading Saxophone resource.
Adolphe Sax, the Belgian inventor, patented the saxophone in 1846. His invention combined the single reed of the clarinet with the bore and fingering patterns of the oboe, producing unique tonal qualities.
Although composers of classical music have written for it, the instrument has been most effectively used in jazz and popular music, and the number jazz performers risen to fame playing the sax is ever increasing.

"The family of the Saxophone does not consist only of the four types known and popularized by military music. It consists of up to sixteen members and the professor should accustom his students to play if not on all of them at least on several types." - Saxophone Inventor Adolphe Sax, 1883
