Sax Stats

By reviewing saxophones in a standard way we are able to compare and contrast the development of styles, features and weights over time. Hopefully you will find this informative and useful. We’ll also be looking at the installed base of instruments by maker over time through studying serial number lists.

See our analysis of saxophone weights here.

  1. My Martin Handcraft Indiana Low pitch (serial # 57371) weights a little over 5 lbs does that mean it is a Baritone? I bought this instrument today and know nothing about it. The finish appears to be brass coated with a lacquer on it. I would appreciate any info. Thanks,
