The B-flat Soprano is well-suited to making pleasant background music. Its sound is unmistakably that of a saxophone the only difference is that it produces a higher pitch than other variations. It is a smaller variation and it is available with a straight or curved bell shape.
The E-flat Alto saxophone is usually found in school bands. You can spot an alto saxophone by its straight neck and high pitch. You can tell it apart from a tenor saxophone by its smaller size and higher tone.
Another option is to find a baritone saxophone. The defining feature of baritone saxophones is their huge size. These musical instruments are so huge that the musicians who play them have to wear a harness. The instrument is propped up on a stand and the harness supports the weight of the instrument.
