The saxophone is a member of the woodwind family of instruments. Saxophones are made of brass and played with a single-reed mouthpiece similar to that of the clarinet. Saxophones are used in a variety of musical genres. They are popular in concert band, jazz and even rock bands.

When renting or buying a saxophone, it might seem that almost any sax will work for a beginner, but that is not always true. It’s very important to start with a high quality instrument, as the first few months are often the most critical and difficult. An instrument that does not play properly can be a huge discouragement and source of frustration for any student.

That doesn't mean a beginner needs the finest or most expensive sax, but they do need one that responds freely, plays the correct notes when the right keys are pressed, plays in tune with the other instruments in the band, and can be repaired and adjusted as needed.

If you are not a beginner, consider a more advanced saxophone. It can have additional keys, engravings, and different materials that improve the tone and intonation of the instrument. In addition, many advanced saxophones feature "post-to-rib" construction, which increases the weight and tonal stability of the instrument.

Shuff’s Music carries student, intermediate and professional saxophones of high quality brands like Jupiter, Selmer, Buffet, Eastman, and others.
