Length of the sax is dependent on the bore and taper. A smaller bore/taper horn will be shorter. A larger bore horn will be longer. Has everything to do with the volume of the instrument and the standing wave that actually vibrates. 1 cm isn't a particularly significant difference (even on a sop), but is due entirely to this bit of physics. There are others on the forum that can give you references to the math, but this is the lay version of it.
