Which Saxophone is the right choice?

Saxophone players may want to use a variety of instruments in their musical career. Most students start with the Alto Saxophone because it is fairly lightweight and manageable for small hands, so this is often a 'first' choice for many customers. For Sax players who want to try other models, we also sell Tenor Saxophones, Baritone Saxophones, Soprano and Sopranino Saxophones. Whatever your preferred choice of instrument, we'll have something to suit you. Our expert staff specialise in products, performance, teaching and repairing in the brass and woodwind sector, so will be happy to answer any of your questions.

Saxophone Brands

Our stock represents brands including Yamaha, Selmer, Yanagisawa, WoodStone, Keilwerth, Jupiter and Windcraft. In short, when you are next in need of a high-quality and well-priced saxophone there's no finer place to look than Dawkes Music.

At Dawkes Music Online Store we also give you the option of dipping into the second-hand Saxophone market to find the best possible Saxophone price. Not all budgets can stretch to a new instrument, and there are plenty of pre-owned options available for purchase in the UK.

Saxophone Advice

It is very important to clean your Saxophone after you have played it and our page on How to clean a saxophone show the various Pad Savers and Neck Swabs available. Do you feel your saxophone isn't playing as it should or as well as you remember from when you first received it? Our Saxophone repairs page explain some of the issues that may affect your instrument now or in the future.

Saxophones Rental

Our Instrument Rental Scheme is perfect if you're not sure that you wish to purchase an instrument just yet. For example, you may have a young beginner and you want to see how they progress or you may be an adult adding another instrument to your collection. Our 'Start Right' rental scheme is flexible, affordable and you can use some of the money spent on the rental towards the cost of a new instrument. Many new players begin on Alto Sax, but it's not unusual for adults to also consider Tenor Sax when starting out. If you're looking for a child, the Alto Sax is the most common starting place, or perhaps a Curved Soprano if they are very small but we'd advise checking with your teacher first. For Sax players looking to expand their skill set we offer Baritone & Soprano Sax models for monthly rent. This is a great way to find out how you get on with these more specialist instruments.
