Rare Musical Instruments: The Bass Saxophone

The bass is a huge saxophone that lost almost all of its appeal by the mid-1900s. Today, the bass sax is making a comeback, and this massive sax can't help but make an impression.

The Bass Saxophone

Acoustic science tells us that if you want to lower the sound of an instrument you need to make it bigger. Depending on the resonator, this could mean making it much bigger than an instrument only an octave higher, as is the case with the Bass Saxophone.

Pitched in B-flat, it is only a perfect fourth lower than the bari sax, but the bass saxophone is huge in comparison. The baritone is big enough, but the need for a conical pipe means that the bore of the bass saxophone is considerably larger at the bell than even the bari. This makes for a few practical considerations. In order to keep the instrument high enough to play, the neck loops up in a dramatic fashion. A significant length of tubing is just in that massive loop, making the baritone saxophone seem tame.

Another thing to consider is the raw weight of that much brass. The bass saxophone is extremely heavy. Many performers give up on neck straps or harnesses altogether, using a peg like a cello or a tripod stand to hold the sax.

The Sound of a Bass Sax

Bass Saxophones have the versatility of any member of the saxophone family in tone and texture. It is possible to play a "bright" bass saxophone, but due to our perceptions of sound, even the brightest of bass players will have trouble being perceived over the higher pitched instruments. Thus, the bass is often stuck playing double for another instrument, playing backup lines, or bridging holes in the sound. In fairness, that is still an important role, but many sax players prefer to be up front and in your face.

Today it is experiencing a considerable comeback. Considering it was never extremely popular to begin with, the fact that they are being made at all today is quite interesting. There are vintage saxes still to be found around the country, but the size of the instrument is its failing. Big saxes fall hard, and if you drop the sax just once, it may be extremely expensive to repair. Thus, finding an intact and playable vintage bass saxophone is extremely rare.

Considerations for Playing Bass Sax

If you want to be the unique bass sax player, you should consider it carefully. Your ensemble opportunities may be limited by the fact that many people won't know what to do with you. Also, the instrument is massive and it takes a strong back and a solid arm to just move around. . They require more air support anecdotally.

They also cost significantly more than their smaller cousins. Just a case for a bass sax can run up to $400. If you are considering a bass sax, it pays to start with an alto or tenor to get used to playing the sax before you make the leap.

If you are looking for a new instrument, International Woodwinds is currently producing a line of Bass Saxophones. They are over $10,000 new, but they have received solid marks for build quality from many respected players. Also, while they are hard to find, a Brazilian company was producing Bass Saxophones with an extended range down to at least low A, like an extended baritone sax.
