Let's see...I don't know much about saxophones...Well, they're usually gold and rather than having a bell that faces towards the floor like a clarinet, the bell curves up. It's a reed instrument like many other woodwinds and has similar fingerings to the flute.
To the BeginnerEdit
Beginners that I've heard generally have an easier time getting up high than going low. The eumbachoure is similar to that of a clarinet but an expert would have to tell you for exacts. The strap that helps hold the weight of the sax may start to hurt your neck, so a padded one is best.
True or FalseEdit
Don't really know any!
