The bass saxophone is one of the largest members of the saxophone family—larger than the more commonly encountered baritone saxophone. It was the first type of saxophone presented to the public, when Adolphe Sax presented a bass saxophone in C at an exhibition in Brussels in 1841. The modern bass saxophone is a transposing instrument pitched in B♭, an octave below the tenor saxophone. The bass saxophone is not commonly used in any music, but it is heard on some 1920s jazz recordings; in free jazz; and in the saxophone choir or "large ensemble" tradition.

  • Das Basssaxophon bzw. Basssaxofon ist ein Saxophon der dritttiefsten Lage. Gestimmt ist es in B, seltener in C. Noch tiefer sind das Kontrabasssaxophon (auch Tubax genannt) und das Subkontrabasssaxophon. Solistisch wird dieses Instrument eher selten verwendet. Auch im typischen Saxophonsatz einer Big Band kommt es nicht vor; das tiefste Saxophon ist hier das Baritonsaxophon. Das Basssaxophon übernahm im New Orleans Jazz häufig die Bass-Rolle (z. B. Adrian Rollini oder Coleman Hawkins in „Hop Off“ 1927).
  • Le saxophone basse est un instrument de musique à vent, de la famille des bois, parmi les tessitures les plus graves de la famille des saxophones. Le premier véritable saxophone basse fut construit par le fils d'Adolphe Sax (Adolphe Edouard Sax), car le saxophone qu'Adolphe Sax père qualifiait de "basse" fut ensuite rebaptisé "baryton". Les sociétés Conn, Buescher, Kohlert, Evette et Schaeffer, puis Selmer, en ont également produit un certain nombre de modèles. Cet instrument sonne à l'octave inférieure du saxophone ténor en si
  • De bassaxofoon is een van de laagste instrumenten uit de saxofoonfamilie; alleen de contrabassaxofoon en de subcontrabassaxofoon zijn nog lager. De bassaxofoon is gestemd in bes, en wel een octaaf lager dan een tenorsaxofoon. De bassaxofoon is het eerste type saxofoon dat door de Belgische uitvinder Adolphe Sax (1814-1894) is gebouwd. Daarbij dient te worden opgemerkt dat zijn eerste bassaxofoon in C was gestemd, dit in tegenstelling tot de huidige bassaxofoons die in Bb staan.
  • Il sassofono basso (o semplicemente sax basso) è uno degli strumenti appartenenti alla famiglia dei sassofoni. Inizialmente fu creato in Do da Adolphe Sax a Bruxelles nel 1841. Tuttavia oggi è uno strumento trasportato in Sib, un'ottava sotto al Tenore. Il sassofono basso non è comunemente usato in tutti i tipi di musica, ma è stato utilizzato nel free jazz, nel jazz del 1920.Lo strumento è stato utilizzato per la prima volta nel 1844 da Hector Berlioz in un suo arrangiamento. È stato utilizzato anche da Georges Kastner in una sua opera. Negli anni '50 e '60, il sax basso incontrò anche la musica classica; per esempio nella colonna sonora di West Side Story di Leonard Bernstein e altre come The Boy Friend di Sandy Wilson. Il compositore statunitense Warren Benson ha scelto di usare questo
