A saxhorn is a member of a family of brass instruments invented by Adolphe Sax (inventor of the saxophone), having a generally conical bore, a cup-shaped mouthpiece, and valves or rotors. The original family ranged from the Eb soprano to the Eb contrabass. The most common member of the family still in use today is the baritone saxhorn in Bb, commonly called simply "the baritone."
