Below are some saxophone pictures showing the different types of saxophones available today in the saxophone family. I've tried to cover all angles in the pictures of saxophones but you can bet there's one somewhere I don't know about.
They range from the smallest sax which is just over a foot long to the largest which is over 6 1/2 feet long.
The smaller or larger they are the bigger the price and the rarer the instrument. Note that they come as either straight or curved, the curved being the more well known shape and definitely the sexier looking sax.
The smaller they are the harder they are to play and the firmer the embouchre required to play them. The larger they are the more breath support required.
If you don't yet play saxophone but have the desire then may I suggest you stick to the either the Alto or the Tenor sax. If you go venturing into the Soprano and above you will probably lose heart. These are fairly difficult instruments to play and can be difficult to play in tune.
Pictures Of SaxophonesThe pictures of saxophones start with the smallest sax, this being the Sopranissimo, Soprillo or Piccolo Saxophone. The smallest and possibly the hardest to play in the saxophone family.
