Bassic Sax - the website

Welcome to the 7th incarnation of Bassic Sax—info & ca—home to one of the largest saxophone sites on the Net. This site started way back in 2001. Over the past 22 years it has grown to north of 50,000 pages—when counting the extensive photo galleries. New pages are added semi-regularly by either myself, or my partner in saxophone crime, Pete Hales. Yup, he's the man who created the original Saxpics site back in the 1990s.
