Woodwinds, which were originally all made of wood, were given their name because of how they all generate sound. Woodwinds produce sound by the vibration of a wooden reed (saxophone, clarinet) or the instrument itself (flute).

Over the course of several decades, Jean Baptiste’s line of woodwinds has been carefully refined to provide players of all ages and skill levels with well made, reliable instruments that far exceeds the tone and playability of instruments in their class. Every saxophone, flute and clarinet is carefully inspected by Jean Baptiste’s quality control team to ensure that every instrument can be played right out of the case with no need for adjustments.
