We are in the process of building an archive of articles, both old and new, that deal with various aspects of the saxophone. Useful and accurate information is plentiful, but sometimes not easily accessible. Perhaps this archive will help. Please feel free to view these articles, but realize that all of them are copyrighted by their respective authors.

Some of these files are in Adobe PDF format.  You will need a recent version of the free Adobe Reader program to view these articles.
