The Saxophone


The Saxophone is probably one of the most popular instruments to date. there are
13 different types of saxophones, but only four are regularly used. This
instrument has a sound all of its own, and today is manufactured by many
different companies. The Saxophone continues to develop since its creation in
1836.

Between the years of 1836- 1842, Adolphe Sax developed his saxophone. It took
him until June 28, of 1846 to get a patent on his Saxophone. This was because of
the Saxophone\'s original resmblace to the ophicleide and bassoon. Some people
think that the Saxophone was originally created when Adolphe Sax put a clarinet
mouthpiece on a brass instrument.
