Saxophone was invented by Adolphe Sax, in 1840. He was a born in Belgium and was known as an instrument-maker, flautist, and clarinetist working in Paris. For 15 years, he did not receive his patent for this instrument. He manufactured these saxophones in almost all sizes and finally received his license on June 28, 1846. During the patent time i.e, 1846-1866 only the Sax company could manufacture saxaphones.    The idea of the saxaphone was derived from the fitting of a clarinet mouthpiece to an ophicleide, which results in different sounds that are derived from a saxaphone. Some sources claim that Hungarian/Romanian tarogato, would be the reason behind the invention of the saxophone.    He named this instrument "Sound of Sax" when he invented this sax. It was named so that it could offer bands and orchestras with a bass section that would have the power to be used out-of-doors.
