The saxophone comes in various sizes and shapes known as Alto, Baritone, Soprano and Tenor. Each instrument is played by blowing air through a reed within the mouthpiece. This vibrates and different notes are produced by covering and uncovering holes with a system of keys operated by rods and levers.
The soft pads fixed to each key that close the holes off need replacing every couple of years and whilst reeds can last a couple of months it is always wise to have spares available at all times.
A popular instrument in music of all styles, the saxophone is used in orchestras, brass sections and as a solo instrument in blues, jazz and modern music.

Center for the Study of Free-Reed Instruments "CSFRI is devoted to fostering and serving as a resource for scholarly research on all aspects--organology, sociology, repertory, performance practice, etc., of all free-reed instruments, from the harmonium, so popular in India, and mouth-blown sheng family of Southeast Asia, China, and Japan to the western "art-music" repertories for the English concertina and accordion to the many types of "squeezebox" and harmonica as used in myriad folk traditions."
