Sebastian: So over the first Saxophone I have brought with me today is my Tenor Saxophone, which is the one of the lower range saxophone numbers of it's family. And I would like to show you how it's built. It is basically made out of three different parts, this here is the body with the bell and the tube.
So as you can see there is different sets of keys here, some that you would press with your finger tips, some that you would press with the sides of your finger, like these three, and some that you would press with your palm like this and there is even some for your thumb.
So even though it looks very complicated and there is a lot of keys. You'll notice everything fits on to my fingers and I just need to know which one to press in which order.
The next part of the body is this neck that fits right on top, here. And this is the part through which the air is going to arrive from your lungs into the instrument.
Now, finally the most important part of the saxophone is the mouth piece. This is what is actually going to generate the note and this is what's going to influence the sound you have, the most.
The most important part is this little piece of cane I am holding here, it's called the Reed and these come in different strings depending on what kind of sound you want to have, if you are more used to classical music or more jazz or more rock, they come in different cuts; this is a regular cut and they have filed cuts too. And this is exactly like when you are blowing through blades of grass, when you were kids like this and it would make it that sound.
This works exactly along the same concept. So you need to put the reed on the mouth piece like this and make sure it's well aligned. You can keep it in place with your thumb and slide this on top, make sure you have screwed in really very tight so it stays in place. And then you go, just slide it on to the cork piece here and a cork is to make sure it's air tight, and stays in place. And voila! My Mountain Tenor Saxophone.
