The Difference Between Tenor Saxophones & Alto Saxophones

The most obvious difference between the two instruments is their size. The tenor sax is larger and heavier than the alto sax. As a result, the tenor saxophone produces a deeper, more mellow sound while the alto sax has a higher, brighter tone:

  • Tenor sax range: Tenor saxophones are in the key of Bb. The range of the tenor sax in concert pitch is Ab2 to E5
  • Alto sax range: Alto saxophones are in the key of Eb. The range of the alto sax in concert pitch is Db3 to Ab5

Due to its larger size, the tenor saxophone is usually preferred by adult beginners. Despite requiring more airflow than their alto counterpart, tenor saxophones are usually easier to play in tune.

The tenor saxophone is the instrument of choice for professional saxophone players and is arguably the most popular solo instrument for jazz musicians, while the alto saxophone is the solo instrument of choice for classical music.

A Quality Sound With A Quality Finish

The McNeela Beginner Tenor Saxophone is the perfect instrument to help you get started on your musical journey. Designed with playability, durability and affordability in mind, it's guaranteed to help you play your first notes with confidence. This beginner friendly instrument facilitates maximum airflow with zero leakage, offering an even, balanced performance throughout all registers, and good intonation. With this tenor sax in hand you'll see results in no time at all!

The instrument's smooth response and mellow tone are well matched by its sleek black nickel finish. In addition to giving the saxophone its distinctive good looks, the black nickel plating adds extra weight to the saxophone, producing a slightly darker tone than its gold lacquered brass counterpart.

Everything You Need

The McNeela Beginner Saxophone Set comes complete with a protective case, 10 reeds, mouthpiece cover, neck strap, cork grease, cleaning cloth and brush, polishing gloves, and even a digital tuner - everything you need to start making music straight away!
