Histoire du saxophone
The saxophone [ 2 ] (also referred to informally as the sax ) is a conical-bore woodwind musical instrument . Saxophones are usually made of brass and played with a single-reed mouthpiece similar to that of the clarinet . [ 3 ] The saxophone was invented by the Belgian instrument maker Adolphe Sax in 1846. [ 4 ] He wanted to create an instrument that would be the most powerful and vocal of the woodwinds, and the most adaptive of the brass—that would fill the vacant middle ground between the two sections. He patented the saxophone on June 24, 1846 in two groups of seven instruments each.
As we play more loudly, we increase the pressure (which moves the operating point to the right) and we also increase the range of pressure. This means that the (larger) section of the curve we use is no longer approximately linear. This produces an asymmetric oscillation.
