In the 19th century, Adolphe Sax was what you might call a revolutionary instrument maker. He made lots of improvements to the woodwind and brass instrument designs of the day, but there's no doubt that his greatest achievement was the creation of the saxophone family. Of course, if you're looking for an intermediate-level instrument, then you probably already know all about Sax and his inventions - and with this selection of intermediate tenor saxophones, you're looking at some of the most versatile horns on the market today. Built to help you progress from beginner to pro, these instruments offer a fantastic balance between performance and affordability.
