The alto saxophone, also referred to as the alto sax, is a member of the saxophone family of woodwind instruments invented by Belgian instrument designer Adolphe Sax in the 1840s, and patented in 1846. It is pitched in E, and is smaller than the tenor, but larger than the soprano. The alto sax is the most common saxophone and is commonly used in concert bands, jazz bands, chamber music, military bands, marching bands. The fingerings of the different saxophones are all the same so a saxophone player can play any type of saxophone.

The alto saxophone is considered to be the primary member of the saxophone family and most young players start on the alto saxophone.

The Tenor saxophone is a medium-sized member of the saxophone family, a group of instruments invented by Adolphe Sax in the 1840s. The tenor and the alto are the two most commonly used saxophones. The tenor is pitched in the key of B (while the Alto is pitched in E), and written as a transposing instrument with music in the  treble clef sounding an octave and a major second lower than the written pitch. Modern tenor saxophones which have a high F key have a range from A2 to E5 (concert) and are therefore pitched one octave below the soprano saxophone. People who play the tenor saxophone are known as “tenor saxophonists” or “tenor sax players”.

The tenor saxophone uses a larger mouthpiece, reed and ligature than the alto or soprano saxophones. Visually, it is easily distinguished by the bend in its neck, or its crook, near the mouthpiece. The alto saxophone lacks this and its neck goes straight to the mouthpiece. The tenor saxophone is most recognized for its ability to blend well with the soprano, alto and baritone saxophones, with its “husky” yet “bright” tone.

The tenor saxophone is commonly used in classical music (such as concert bands, chamber music and solo repertoire, military bands, marching bands, jazz groups.

Kenny G soprano saxophones are among the best sopranos available today.  They are completely unique in design and performance. The Patent Pending held by designer Rheuben Allen shows the design combining the modern sopranos and the original Mark VI Selmer soprano like the one Kenny plays.
