Student Baritone & Bass Saxophones
While it's recommended for younger saxophone enthusiasts to start with alto or tenor models, baritone and bass saxophones are definitely a great choice for beginners who are a little older. The reason is because baritone and bass models are heavier and larger in size than other saxophone types, and require stronger lungs and more air to play. Of course, there are plenty of high-quality student baritone and bass saxophones to choose from - and although challenging to play, they're also a lot of fun.
As you've probably guessed, baritone and bass saxophones produce the lowest pitches in the sax family. Tuned to Bb, bass models are found most commonly in classical ensembles - on the other hand, baritone saxophones are tuned to Eb and are used in a wide range of genres. In this section, you'll find some of the most popular brass instrument manufacturers in the world today, including Jupiter and Selmer. Since only the best brands are offered, any one of these sax models would be a great place to start your search, but to kick things off we'll suggest the Antigua Winds Eb Baritone Saxophone. Sporting a lacquer finish and featuring power-forged keys for additional durability, this sax is easy to control and its elegant style and expressive tone will blow away even the most accomplished player.
Another model worthy of a closer look is the Selmer BS500 Baritone Saxophone. Ideal for school bands, this beauty will certainly catch the attention of your instructor. Featuring both low A and high F# keys, double key arms on low C and B keys and much more, the BS500 is a student model that you'll find yourself going back to even years after you become more proficient with the instrument.
So there you have it. The only thing left to do now is browse away, and remember to give careful consideration to each of your options. If you still can't decide on a model, keep checking back to this catalog often - sooner rather than later, you're bound to find a baritone or bass saxophone that perfectly suits your tastes and budget.
