1.
A member of the saxophone family which is placed in between the Baritone and Alto voices. This is considered one of the sweetest, smooth, melodic sounding insturments by some peoples opinion. The Tenor Sax is a favored instrument in many Jazz ensembles and Ska bands. This sax is known for being able to blast out beutiful sounding solos at fast speeds. People who play the Tenor are usually extremely suave and good looking and can usually pick up any gal they would want.

One of the best sounding saxophones in the entire band, the tenor sax is tuned to B-Flat, plays a Fourth lower than the Alto Saxophone and a Fith higher than a Bari Saxophone. Tenor Saxophones often have a very mellow sound, and can carry a melody, or do harmonies and the like.
