is a single reed, woodwind instrument
first developed in the mid-1800s by Adolphe Sax. It is composed of a mouthpiece
, conical metal tube, and finger keys. Sound is produced when air is blown through the instrument causing the reed to vibrate.
This sound is amplified as it travels through the instrument's main
body. Saxophones consist of numerous parts and pieces which are made
separately and then assembled.
